SECRET GARDEN

Live 05 Apr 1995 (Sony Music Studios) version


[Spoken intro:] Alright. Nice, you guys work for Columbia? Yes? No? No? I was gonna tell Tommy to give everybody a raise who's here ???. Give these people a raise! (chuckles) We're gonna do a few things that we're supposed to do, then we'll do some things that we're gonna do (chuckles).

She'll let you in her house
If you come knockin' late at night
She'll let you in her mouth
If the words you say are right
If you pay the price
She'll let you deep inside
But there's a secret garden she hides

She'll let you in her car
To go drivin' 'round
She'll let you into the parts of herself
That'll bring you down
She'll let you in her heart
If you got a hammer and a vise
But into her secret garden, don't think twice

You've gone a million miles
How far'd you get
To that place where you can't remember
And you can't forget

She'll lead you down a path
There'll be tenderness in the air
She'll let you come just far enough
So you know she's really there
She'll look at you and smile
And her eyes will say
She's got a secret garden
Where everything you want
Where everything you need
Will always stay a million miles away
