about

"No One Has To Know" is a lyrically intimate track carried by ambient swells and an indie folk arrangement. It is the debut single off of Becca Roth's forthcoming EP to be released on Pop Cautious Records.

lyrics

We came into the room like water rushing through a flume in the night
And the Neighbors were all sleeping 'til we woke them with our fleeting sighs
And the shadows on the walls were dancing circles around us
Reflecting the dust in our eyes
'Cause in the heat of the moment you were all that I needed
But in the morning, that same feeling was depleted

I never wanted anything but the real thing
Somebody to love me like that
I never really ever knew what I wanted
But I think I'll know when I want it back

When no one has to know
No one has to know
The things we did
When you were mine
And I was yours
And we were ours, together

Well, I snuck out the door
And held hands with my shame for too long
And tried to scrub off the sadness
'Cause I thought it would never be gone
'Cause the people in the church would tell us we were both sinners
And try to save us with their Jesus songs
And we'd roll our eyes and try not to resent them
'Cause we'd already been to heaven

I never wanted anything but the real thing
Somebody to love me like that
I never really ever knew what I wanted
But I think I'll know when I want it back

When no one has to know
No one has to know
The things we did
When you were mine
And I was yours
And we were ours together

'Cause I'm usually no good at keeping secrets
And I've been known to swim in the deep end
You could be my silver lining
And I'll let you love me
If we turn out the lights
