about

This song is for my friend, Charlie.
He is a sweet and kind soul who brings us hand-picked flowers every day, and he is homeless.
Charlie's words to me, "It's not your secret to keep. It's who you are," have reminded me that even when we seemingly have nothing to give, we help each other through kindness. I hope this song reminds us all of the gifts we've been given, and to share them with joy.

All of the money made from these downloads is going to help Charlie. You can give $1 or more. There's no limit.

lyrics

Feels like the sun never hit
this little hole in the wall
Cool and sheltered and thick
This place where I never fall

Something is trying to rise
Something is starting to speak
Come on, come on, let it fly fly
That's when he says to me

It's not your secret to keep
It's who you are
It's not your secret to keep
It's who you are
It's who you are
It's who you are

And when the light, it pours in
this little hole in the wall
I see this beauty has been
right here with me all along

Come on, come on
come on, come on, let it fly fly

It's not your secret to keep
It's who you are
It's not your secret to keep
It's who you are
It's who you are

Even sleeping on sidewalks
Even down on your knees
When you're blinded by sadness
There is someone who sees you

It's not your secret to keep
It's who you are
It's not not your secret to keep
It's who you are
It's who you are
It's who you are
It's who you are
