  • Everybody's got a secret Sonny
    Something that they just can't face
    Some folks spend their whole lives trying to keep it
    They carry it with them every step that they take
    Till some day they just cut it loose
    Cut it loose or let it drag `em down
    Where no one asks any questions
    Or looks too long in your face
    In the darkness on the edge of town

    BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN (1978)
