The Corrs - Secret Life Lyrics

From red giant to supernova
Back to you and me
A cloaked entity within
A virtual reality
Mechanised and organised
To me it's plain to see
The hand that's been busy
Weaving fantasy
It's so hard to understand
And often we are blind
But if truth were an ocean
Would it fit in the pool of a human mind

You're all alone
And it doesn't seem quite fair
Why we're all left in ignorance
Turning to despair (turning to despair)
Philosophy and theology
Offer us a glimpse
At something more incredible (incredible)
Than you and I

So call on the secret life
Call on the secret life
Show me the way of life
Bring on the secret life

Evangelists, scientologists
And others I won't mention
Offer lessons in codology
To all with good intention (intention)
Listen at your peril
Put your soul in detention
Resensitise yourself
To this incredible dimension

When you're all alone
And it doesn't seem quite fair
Why we're all left in ignorance
Turning to despair (turning to despair)
Philosophy and theology
Offer us a glimpse
At something more incredible (incredible)
Than you and I

So call on the secret life
Call on the secret life
Show me the way of life
Bring on the secret life

I think, therefore I am
I think, therefore I am

And you're all alone
And it doesn't seem quite fair
Why we're all left in ignorance
Turning to despair (turning to despair)
Philosophy and theology
Offer us a glimpse
At something more incredible (incredible)
Than you and I

So call on the secret life
Call on the secret life
Show me the way of life
Bring on the secret life

Call on the secret life (turning to despair)
Call on the secret life (turning to despair)
Show me the way of life (turning to despair)
Bring on the secret life (turning to despair)
Call on the secret life (turning to despair)
Call on the secret life (turning to despair)
Show me the way of life (turning to despair)
Bring on the secret life (turning to despair)
