about

Found my way back to the West Coast in '83. Wrote this after a flame begged me to read her diary. I guess a diary is the biggest kiss and tell book of them all. Maybe like discovering your lover was in an adult flick and you weren't even in the credits. It's amazing how many people confide in me, stating how they stumbled on their lover's secret past life. And they expect me to be shocked .. soon the dreams would take over, a new diary for the offering.

lyrics

Look through my diary
Tell me what you see
I see the scandal there in your diary
Do all the characters on each page apply to me
I just can't stand to see your diary

I don't want to read it
Anymore -
I don't want to open the pages like before
In your diary

And with the winter's pass
Will you remember me
It's all in black and white in your diary
When summer comes and goes
And leaves fall from the tree
Will I be remembered in your diary

I don't want to read it
Anymore -
I don't want to open the pages like before
In your diary

Through all the changes that have been
(Da do da do do do)
Read each line and then read in between
In your diary

Through all the times we shared
Why where you scared of me
Scared of what I might find in your diary
If I built a nest for two
Would you come live with me
I'll always love you in your diary

I don't want to read it
Anymore -
I don't want to open the pages like before
In your diary

Through all the changes that have been
(Da do da do do do)
Read each line and then read in between
(Da do da do do do)
And with all the changes that have been
(Da do da do do do)
Read each line and then read in between

In your diary
In your diary
In your diary ..
