Who Knows What Secret The Heart Keeps?

Who knows what secret the heart keeps?
Ask the trees, they will watch you wait on your lips,
To see you say the real secret,
Yet in reality, they wish would wear it up on your face.

Who knows what secret the heart keeps?
Ask the stones strolling around the road,
Like a covered pot, they can not say it, unless touched
And turned upside down.

Who knows what secret the heart keeps?
Ask the wind, she whistle on our ears,
What the women said on their way to the river,
She tries to explain it to us, Yet, nobody understands.
What the wind whispers is like drank whiskey.

Who knows what secret the heart keeps?
Ask the sparrow, she sings softly on the tree,
The tree that refuses to tell the wind which whistle,
Beneath the stone, that watches the sparrow from above.
And no one knows what secret the heart keeps.

Our heart's secrets remain safe unless we choose to share them with others.
