She’ll let you in her house
If you come knockin’ late at night
She’ll let you in her mouth
If the words you say are right
If you pay the price
She’ll let you deep inside
But there’s a secret garden she hides
She’ll let you in her car
To go drivin’ ’round
She’ll let you into the parts of herself
That’ll bring you down
She’ll let you in her heart
If you got a hammer and a vise
But into her secret garden, don’t think twice

You’ve gone a million miles
How far’d you get
To that place where you can’t remember
And you can’t forget

She’ll lead you down a path
There’ll be tenderness in the air
She’ll let you come just far enough
So you know she’s really there
Then she’ll look at you and smile
And her eyes will say
She’s got a secret garden
Where everything you want
Where everything you need
Will always stay
A million miles away

  2. The first thing that I always (most often) see your pictures is your beautiful, intelligent face and your expressive, beautiful, intelligent eyes in which thought and irony shine. Everything else about you is fine too, but it seems to me that you are shy.
    The poems are beautiful and full of meaning.
    Thank you

  3. All of the above comments apply and I’m glad for the look close comment.

    My question would be where is your hand buried?

    It’s been a long time since I’ve listened to this tune. And until I read the lyrics here I’m not sure I knew this other than a pleasant ballad. Springsteen is a poet.

    And the image sparks a fantasy I need to write. Thanks for the inspiration!

    You have a very beautiful and expressive face. Thanks for

  4. Lovely image to go with great lyrics – it’s a pairing that just feels right when you see them together – looking for the other half of my pairing (again) – it always feels better to have someone you can relax & reveal your true self (secret self) to

We would love to hear your thoughts!
