Sloan - Oh Dear Diary Lyrics




Oh dear diary
You didn't hear it from me
But I know I know something I shouldn't know
And you're the only one I can tell

I'll write it in code
'Cause if somebody showed
You around I'm bound to lose every friend
And what am I supposed to do then

They must not see
(Must not see)
You, oh dear diary
You're the secret I must keep at any cost
If they read
(If they read)
The painful poetry
And they find out that I feel
All will be lost

I'm trying to make sense
Feelings so intense
It's hard to cut the dramatics whenever you're young
I'm writing every word of it down

You'd know what I mean
If you could have seen
It was like a coincidence
Only turned on its head
It took me twenty pages to tell

If they see
(If they see)
You, oh dear diary
I'm a liar that's expected in your youth
They can't know
(They can't know)
That I feel and so
You'll be on fire and they'll never know the truth

Oh, dear diary
Your secret's safe with me
If you're found on the grounds of the school, I'll be dead
I'll hear them chanting off with his head

Oh dear diary
You didn't hear it from me
But I know I know something I shouldn't know
And you're the only one I can tell
