lyrics

It's a private thing
Between you and I
The touch of a hand
The blink of an eye
Vibrations of harmonic souls
Ghosts as old as pharaoh stories
Epic tales of ancient glories
Beautiful as celestial bodies
Mama Bear will be home soon
How will she understand
Our deliverance
From the pain of loneliness we felt once

One sits in silence
Two cries for broken dreams
Three lives in memories
And hopes that someday she'll be happy

It's a private thing
Between you and I
A glance from across the room
Knowing that we'll be together soon
Steal the conscience from the moon
Oh, it's so objective
Billions of us disconnected
Wonder why I'm so protective?

One sits in silence
Two cries for broken dreams
Three would give anything
And take anything, too, it seems
Four is so scandalous
Five is a danger to us
Six wouldn't harm a hair
But we would feel his green-eyed stare

One might wonder why
My lady, love, and I
We keep this thing so secretive
This covert passion that we live
Well, it's a private thing
Between you and I
The touch of a hand
The blink of an eye
It's a private thing
Between you and I
A glance from across the room
Knowing that we'll be together
Soon . . .
Knowing that we'll be together soon
Knowing that we'll be together soon
I said, knowing that we'll be together soon
