Houghton, Israel - Secrets Lyrics

We lie to our lovers, we lie to our friends
Painting our pictures and playing pretend
We keep our secrets all to ourselves
Stand at a distance so no one can tell

And nobody knows us and nobody will
We all keep pretending we're better, but still
We keep our secrets to cover our shame
You see the darkness and You love us the same

We run from our troubles, we run from our pain
Gather the dirt up and sweep it away
And we put our mask on, pretending by faith
And carry our secrets with us to the grave

And nobody knows us and nobody will
We all keep pretending we're better, but still
We keep our secrets to cover our shame
But You see the darkness and You love us the same

We hide our weakness, we hide our sin
We feel the guilt but we keep it all in
We are just children, small and afraid
Your truth will unmask us and love us the same

And nobody knows us and nobody will
We all keep pretending we're better, but still
We keep our secrets to cover our shame
And You see the darkness and You love us the same
You see the darkness and love us the same
You see the darkness and You love us the same

  4. Luis goncalvez

    adrienne your voice is beautiful please never stop singing

  5. Renee Joseph

    God is a God of second chances so Im very happy they've found forgiveness. I trust that they've also made amends with those that they wounded deeply by the genesis of their relationship. Im still deeply troubled by where their relationship stands in terms of Mark 10.11-12, but God is supreme and will have the final say. Meanwhile though, I've listened to a few of their songs and am troubled by the fact that while they allude to God, nowhere is His name mentioned. In that respect, I miss the old Israel who never left the person his praise/ worship was directed to in a cloud of mystery and uncertainty. Remember and recognize your first love, Israel...

    Best song I have listened to ol year.

    If only humanity would learn to love the way God does.. That he loves us the same despite our secrets this world would be a mic much better place. Its a challenge to love like this but I'm up for this challenge

  29. Take Courage

    i have recently learned a beautiful lesson, keeping secrets, they haunt you and you cannot be free at all. you live with fear of being found out.
    It is what you hide that kills you. it is not healthy at all to keep secrets. see an extract from one of my favourate teachings.

    It is time you took off your mask. As long as you wear a mask, you are role playing. God is not interested in your role-playing. He wants to deal with you, the real you. He wants to know the real you that struggles with the secret issues of the heart. The you behind the false smile and pretty clothes. The you that is wrestling with all kinds of things. God wants to make you whole. He doesn’t want to put a bandage on a broken arm. He wants to reset the bones so there can be proper healing in your life. For God to effectively minister to you, you will have to take off your mask and reveal your real needs and challenges. If you are going to conquer anything in your life, you must first confront it.
    To confront it, you must be honest about it.
    See yourself for who and for what you really are. Why spend great amounts of energy trying to mask your painful inner struggles?
    It’s about time you faced your problems, needs, inadequacies and struggles. Stop role-playing.
    What you have to confront is the enemy within. The beginning of transformation takes place when you are willing to make that not-so-easy confrontation. God wants to set you free from yourself. You cannot expect to experience God’s best when you are living a double standard. You need to realize you are hiding.

  41. Zee SA

    We lie to our lovers
    We lie to our friends
    Painting our pictures
    And playing pretend
    We keep our secrets
    All to ourselves
    Standing a distance so no one can tell
    And nobody knows us
    And nobody will
    We all keep pretending we're better but still
    We keep our secrets to cover our shame
    You see the darkness and you love us thesame
    We run from our troubles
    We run from our pain
    Gather the dirt all and sweep it away
    We put our mask on pretending by faith
    And carry our secrets with us to the grave
    And nobody knows us and Nobody will
    We all keep pretending we better but still
    We keep our secrets to cover our shame
    But you see the darkness and love us thesame
    We hide our weakness, we hide our sins
    We feel the guilt but keep it away
    We are just children small and afraid
    The truth will unmask us and love us thesame

    And nobody knows us and nobody will
    All keep pretending were better but still
    We keep our secrets to cover our shame
    You see the darkness and you love us thesame

    This is one of the most beautiful videos I have witnessed as a woman of faith. The husband and wife Israel and Adrienne have truly blessed kingdom people with this reminder of how God loves us. Thanks guys. I will play this on the radio show!

  81. gloryharmony

    I love this song because there is so much truth to it. Speaks to me in so many way. However, I can't get past the fact that when we say we are God's ministers( gospel worker) we can no longer look like the world in the way we attire ourselves. Why do we always have to reveal so much cleavage ??? On one hand we are saying that we are Christians but it's okay to look like the world.

  82. Caitlyn Baartman

    Oh my goshhhhhhhh😭❤️😍

  83. O'Brien Mungofa
