Agatha's Secret







Gaynor Perry - Agatha's Secret


Agatha’s secret 
Agatha Agatha 
Agatha’s secret 
of arty winning claim 

I’ve seen you walking 
I’ve seen you wearing a silver dress 
He held you in the snicket 
That’s when you became a storm 
You're the entity next door 

Confusing as it’s still light here 
Happenings that suffuse darkness 
I'd been traversing the rockery 
Earlier that day 

Come out to play 
With innocence and sunshine 
Watching the swifts dart about on the breeze 
And in your head a prisoner held hostage 
By an aspect of you 
That can’t let go 

Agatha’s secret 
Agatha Agatha 
Agatha’s secret 
of arty winning claim 
Take your hands off the wheel 

I’ve seen you walking 
I’ve seen you wearing that silver dress 
You were fun at three 
Dead to the world at nine 
Lost in bluebell woods 

Escape the glare of the harridan 
Living on top of you 
Wrap yourself up in beetles 
Imagine what they will do 

You’re pulling through 
The chaos and confusion 
Watching the swifts dart about on the breeze 
In your heart someone else’s sadness 
They put it in you 

Agatha’s secret 
Agatha Agatha 
Agatha’s secret 
of arty winning claim 
Let the sun shine through
