Secret World Lyrics By Peter Gabriel

Secret World Lyrics By Peter Gabriel

If you've read our (Ken and Paula) story about being on Escape To The Continent, then you read the lyrics to Peter Gabriel's beautiful song, Secret World, you'll know just why we chose this song as the inspiration to our quest to move to Spain.

The lyrics, shown below, reflect some beautiful sentiments worth considering when thinking of the perfect song for your first dance at your wedding. The song is long enough to give the bridal couple some time alone on the dance floor and for the DJ to invite the guests onto the floor half way through. We did that at our wedding at it worked perfectly. 

If you are not sure after reading the lyrics, listen to the song on iTunes and then decide ...

Now, every time we hear the song it reminds us of a very special day and we can't help getting up and dancing to the tune, even in our dining room!

 

Secret World Lyrics


I stood in this sunsheltered place
'Til I could see the face behind the face
All that had gone before had left no trace

Down by the railway siding
In our secret world, we were colliding
All the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

So I watch you wash your hair
Underwater, unaware
And the plane flies through the air
Did you think you didn't have to choose it
That I alone could win or lose it
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

In this house of make believe
Divided in two, like Adam and Eve
You put out and I recieve

[Chorus:]
Down by the railway siding
In our secret world, we were colliding
In all the places we were hiding love
What was it we were thinking of?

Oh the wheel is turning spinning round and round
And the house is crubling but the stairways stand

With no guilt and no shame, no sorrow or blame
Whatever it is, we are all the same

Making it up in our secret world [x3]
Shaking it up
Breaking it up
Making it up in our secret world

Seeing things that were not there
On a wing on a prayer
In this state of disrepair

[Chorus]
Shh, listen
