Thousand Secrets
Sahara Smith Lyrics


Blue light breaking on the window glass and
cool wind shaking in the long, white grass,
The ocean speaks the language of the dawn
Thin sails rising on the autumn sky
and the old man’s singing while the knots untie
I looked back and all the ships are gone.

And no one’s gonna know
The thousand little secrets that are slippin’ through the undertow.
There’s a quiet hunger I have curled myself inside
and it’s a thousand secrets wide.

Sold white carnations in an neon bar
And when he turned sixteen he bought a stolen car,
Drove all the way to Dallas in the dark.
And I could fall in love but I’m so damn young
And I try to hold on but then the quicker rains come
And everytime they fall it breaks my heart.

And no one’s gonna know
The thousand little secrets that are slippin’ through the undertow.
There’s a quiet hunger I have curled myself inside
and it’s a thousand secrets wide.

Every broken, there’s mile of fallen leaves.
And no one knows the river flows a thousand miles deep.

Wanna walk on water, wanna walk downstream,
I wanna walk back to New Orleans, with the crash of broken glass in the yard.
I wanna quit this city in the midnight hush of a pale moon shinin’ on a southbound bus.
You never know what you’ve lost until you lose it hard.

And no one’s gonna know
The thousand little secrets that are slippin’ through the undertow.
There’s a quiet hunger I have curled myself inside
and it’s a thousand secrets wide.
There’s a quiet hunger I have curled myself inside
and it’s a thousand secrets wide.
and it’s a thousand secrets wide.
and it’s a thousand secrets wide.

@smiles101361 Me either, she is amazing, I bought her CD after hearing her on a internet radio station recently. Perhaps she is working on a new CD?

I love sahara Smith!! I played an opening for the concert she played at The Arts Cottage. She was so nice to me and said I played the flute very good. She is the best and I am going to get her CD from her parents.

Where's Sahara Smith now? Is she still in the Austin area after all the big changes we've had here since this song was made? Her songs remind me of the beauty we once had here. Hope she's living a life that's as beauty as her voice.
