The Bright Black

Onto Us


girl, we're casting shadows
on the wall
we're leaving footprints
in the hall

but when suspicions come to call
that's when we know sopmething's wrong

girl we're gonna need
an alibi
because they won't believe a word
that we say
yeah, girl we're gonna need
to try harder today

girl, they're onto us
but I think we're on the run now
girl, they're onto us
but I think we're on the run
in the name of secret love

girl, this love was born
behind closed doors
but now they've got us torn
between owning up to what we have done
and going on the run

girl we're gonna need
an alibi
because they won't believe a word
that we say
yeah, girl we're gonna need
to try harder today

girl, they're onto us
but I think we're on the run now
girl, they're onto us
but I think we're on the run
in the name of secret love

girl, they're onto us
oh baby it's crazy
but I think we're on the run now
maybe we've been lazy
because I think they're onto us
yeah, I think they're onto us
girl, I think they're onto us
in the name of secret love
