I'm going to take you to
         |||*|| 11
         ***|||
         ||||||
My secret place.
                |||*|| 6
                ***|||
                ||||||
It's a place that you   Like no one else I know
         |||*|| 11
         ***|||
         ||||||
Might appreciate.

I don't go there with anyone--but you're a special case

       ***|||            ***|||
       ||||||            ||||||
For my special place, my special place
For my secret place.

Chorus:

***|||      ***|||      ***|||
||||||      ||||||      ||||||
In my ...    secret ... place ...  In my secret ...
|||*|| 11   |||*|| 6    |||*|| 4
***|||      ***|||      ***|||
||||||      ||||||      ||||||
In my ...   secret ... place

People talk to tell you something
Or to take up space.
Guess I'm only talking
To be talking to
Your pretty face.
I don't talk much to anyone--but
You're a special case
For my special place
My secret place.

    ||||||    ||||||    ||||||    ||||||
I was born and raised in New York City.

I'm just getting used to Colorado--
   |||*|| 6  |||*|| 4  |||*|| 6
   ***|||    ***|||    ***|||
   ||||||    ||||||    ||||||
Oh street bravado  ...
|||*|| 11

||||||
Carry me.
            |||*|| 9
            ***|||
            ||||||
Why did you bring me to
|||*|| 4   |||*|| 6  |||*|| 4
***|||     ***|||    ***|||
||||||     ||||||    ||||||
A place so wild and pretty?

Are there pigeons in this park--
            |||*|| 6
            ***|||
            ||||||
Muggers after dark--
       |||*|| 4 |||*|| 6  |||*|| 11
       ***|||   ***|||    ***|||
       ||||||   ||||||    ||||||
In these gol... den       trees--
In the secret place?

Repeat chorus

I'm going to take you to
My special place.
It's a place no amount of hurt and anger
Can deface.
I put things back together there
It all falls right in place--
In my special space
My special place.

(repeat chords for break)
One I saw a film
In New York City
That was shot in Colorado--
Girl meets desperado
In the trembling mountain trees.
Out of all of the girls that you see
In bleachers and cafe windows
Sitting--flirting with someone
Looking to have some fun
Why did you pick me?
For the secret place.

Repeat chorus
