My general rule for secrets is that if I am trusted with one I don't tell it until after I hear it from a different source or two. Sort of like the concept of "inevitable discovery" on Law and Order.

This rather spiffy song from the Pierces really needs to be heard instead of read because it sounds like the sort psychedelic carousel music that plays in a movie soundtrack about the time that I'm burying my head in David's shoulder because it's getting creepy up there.

Secret The Pierces

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said
Cause two can keep a secret
If one of the m is dead…

Why do you smile
Like you have told a secret
Now you're telling lies
Cause you're the one to keep it
But no one keeps a secret
No one keeps a secret
Why when we do our darkest deeds
Do we tell?
They burn in our brains
Become a living hell
Cause everyone tells
Everyone tells…


Look into my eyes
Now you're getting sleepy
Are you hypnotized
By secrets that you're keeping?
I know what you're keeping
I know what you're keeping


Yes, Katherine.
I have something I want to tell you, but
you have to promise to never tell anyone.
I promise
Do you swear on your life?
I swear on my life

[end spoken]

You swore you'd never tell…
You swore you'd never tell…

You swore you'd never tell…
You swore you'd never tell…

(Chorus x3 and speeding up to really bring the creepy)

Yes two can keep a secret
If one of us is…. Dead.
