You were from the North, I was from the South
We were form opposite places, different towns
But I knew it was good and you knew it was too
So we moved together like a ball and chain
Minds becoming two halves of the same
It was real, but in shadows it grew

'Cause you've got a secret don't ya babe?

I would've shouted loud and broken through
I would've given it all to belong to you
But there were different plans, different rules
You said "where I'm from there is a lock and key
If you'd be so kind as to follow me
I will show you the way to the rest of my sins"

'Cause you've got a secret don't ya babe?
Yeah you, you got a secret don't ya babe?
And I should know
Yeah I should know

So this room was damp where your sins laid
There was that smell in the air of an old place
That hadn't seen much daylight in years
And you threw me down, said, "If ya don't mind
I'm gonna leave you here until night time
Then we can do what we want my baby out of the spotlight."

'Cause you've got a secret don't ya babe?
Yeah you, you got a secret don't ya babe?
And I should know
Yeah I should know
For I'm your secret aren't I babe?
Yeah I'm your secret aren't I babe?
Aren't I babe?

Did she dip into Trillville's Some Cut for a little sexy? 
Good lord, what a sexy groove...
Two songs off this album, IMHO, are superior - "100 Round The Bends" & "Where I Stood". This is very okay.

Here's a nice live cut.  Sexy song....



I like Missy a lot, this rocks, and she sings so sexy. 
You got a schecret?
Saw her recently, she is a very good performer.
Just popping in to say I like this---very good.

Great radio station, guess it can't get it right all the time.

Okay, forget what I wrote there a while ago.
In reading her bio, it stated that she wrote this for an ex-GIRLfriend that she was mad about but couldn't share it with the world.
The world's going to hell. 
 
I hope you're being sarcastic because regardless of your homophobia, it's still a great song.

Nice segue from KT Tunstall.  Interesting tune.
I`m pretty sure this is the first time I`ve ever heard anything from Ms Missy Higgins . I like it . Short song though .
"If you'd be so kind as to follow me
I will show you the way to the rest of my sins"

Love those lines!

So what, it is still HOT!
The repeating guitar reminds a bit of me of Patricia Barber's "Ode to Billy Joe" on her Cafe Blue album...

Yes, I have a secret, you sultry young thing. Just stop it.

I'm not sure that I'd prefer her squeezing fourteen words into that phrase.  To me, it carries the melody, it's not a superfluous adornment like one would hear on those venues you mentioned.  We all hear different things, though.

Man, she's got some PIPES.

Seductive.
"More excellent singers like this from the Antipodes and I'll forgive Oz for having inflicted Foster's pisswater on the world. That's some voice she's got there. 8 from the Nottingham jury."

The odd thing is that no-one down here drinks Fosters.  As far as I know it's made (and possibly entirely consumed) by the residents of blighty.  Which seems odd given the spectacularly fine hoppy products produced on that small island....

As to Missy, talented young lady, like this piece a lot.
i didn't want to like this...but i kind of do.

Been a fan for a while.  Love the innocence in her Aussie voice.  
BTW- Thanks for the exposure to music from around the world.

Not bad, but I like Little Miss Higgins better.
I'm wondering. I read a discussion here about the song "The Laugh Of Recognition" by Over The Rhine. Some people stumbled over the way the singer pronounces the letter "S". I'm wondering if the same goes for this song, she really "sshhh"s the letter "S" a lot, so........

I dunno, i'm just sayin'
is this carina round?
Just one more great song in your (our) repertoire.

Do you still have fun picking songs for us?
I sure hope so.

Thank you Bill & Rebecka & family.
We do love what you give us & give us willingly.


Great cover art, mediocre music.

Wow. Made me come here and rate a solid, solid 9. What a great track.
