NEVER TELL THE WORLD
(Chris Dedrick - Sandy Dedrick)
The Free Design - 1967
Never tell the world, no, no, no.
Never tell the world, never give it reason
To mock a love like ours; never sing our song.
Keep it locked inside, keep it just between us.
Keep it secret, never confide until they all have seen us.
Never has the world complied with a love that seems to reproach it;
And every wrong-spoken word that we’ve ever heard....warns us:
We better keep our cool, our love’s too precious,
People hate a broken rule, people won’t accept us.
But someday the world might change and a love like ours might belong,
But until that day comes along...never tell.
