SECRET

Lyrics

Things haven't been the same
Since you came into my life
You found a way to touch my soul
And I'm never ever ever gonna let it go

Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me

Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

You gave me back the paradise
That I thought I lost for good
You helped me find the reasons why
It took me by surprise that you understood
You knew all along
What I never wanted to say
Until I learned to love myself
I was never ever lovin' anybody else

Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me

Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me

Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret for me
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm

Produced by Madonna and Dallas Austin

Shep Pettibone originally wrote 'Something's Coming Over Me', an early version of Secret, but Madonna re-wrote it with Dallas Austin. Could that be why the thank-you notes of the album say "thanx to Shep Pettibone for being understanding"?
Other than that, Pettibone isn't credited in the album booklet.

Single

Secret, the singleWith this first single Madonna set the tune for her cool, more clubby image that matched Bedtime Stories. Released in September 1994, it became a #3 hit in the US, eventually reaching Gold. In Canada it topped the charts for 10 weeks straight. In Japan it got to #2 and in the UK and Australia to #5. The single also topped the Hot Dance / Club Play. In Europe, the B-single of Secret was Let Down Your Guard, a track by Dallas Austin that didn't make the album.

Video

Secret, the videoThe black & white video - directed by Melodie McDaniel and shot in Harlem - helped to build Madonna's new clubby R&B-image. She plays a nightclub singer hiding a 'secret' for her lover. What this secret actually is, remains a mystery. The remix video for Secret, set to Junior's Luscious Single Mix, is one of Madonna's most popular remix videos.
