Our Lips Are Sealed

Can you hear them
They talk about us
Telling lies
Well, that's no surprise
 
Can you see them
See right through them
They have no shield
No secrets to reveal
 
It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed
 
There's a weapon
That we must use
In our defense
Silent lips
 
When you look at them
Look right through them
That's when they'll disappear
That's when we'll be feared
 
It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed
 
Pay no mind to what they say
It doesn't matter anyway
Our lips are sealed
 
Hush, my darling
Don't you cry
Quiet, angel
Forget their lies
 
Can you hear them
They talk about us
Telling lies
Well, that's no surprise
 
Can you see them
See right through them
They have no shield
No secrets to reveal
 
It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed
 
Pay no mind to what they say
It doesn't matter anyway
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed

To help with future translations: This song is sung by the beautiful popular girls (most likely in high school) singing about the other girls who are jealous of them, spreading lies about them. The song title was comically misunderstood in Australia to be "Alex the Seal" which spawned a comic song to that effect, about this song.
Lyric corrections:
"...give no mind..." = "...pay no mind..."
"...in our defense - silent lips.".

Hey lend an ear to "...in our defense - silent lips." Still sounds like defence.
"No secrets to reveal" - "Nothing to be revealed"

See what you think. "Pay no mind" is repaired.

"defense" is misspelled (for us here in the USA). But, the main correction is "silence" = "silent lips".
And, as far as I know, it's supposed to be "They have a shield. Nothing gets through the field." (But, if these are the official lyrics, I'm wrong.)

Hopefully I got it?

LOL! Perhaps you found "Alex the Seal", but due to Copyright laws, and of course it's a slander of an American song, the video is banned in the USA on YouTube. LOL. The way YouTube bans songs is so weird!

Apparently the lyrics are the same, only the title changed. I'm a bit disappointed. I would have expected something like:

Can you hear them
They talk about me
Covetous eyes
Well, that's no surprise

Can you see them
See right through them
They want my skin
They are after my hide

It doesn't matter what they say
In the fur business people play
Alex the seal...

Phil Ambro    Lun, 19/11/2018 - 06:27

I really wouldn't know, I'm not allowed to hear the song. LOL.

It's all about cash flow.

BTW WW WW, I slowed down the song and eliminated as much of the music as I could (using digital extracting) and it really sounds like she's saying...

"There's a weapon. Don't grieve those tears. In our defense. Silent Lips."

But, of course, her voice is so high that she could be singing what the transcription says. After all, they wrote the lyrics. LOL.
There's another section, where it sounds like another girl sings.

"Hush my darling. Don't you cry. Silent Angel. No more of their lies."

But, who am I to say what they really sang?! They sang it, not me. LOL Regular smile

It's truly funny reading these lyrics, because I swore they were singing other words. Here's what I swore they sang, but it's obviously wrong.

"Can you hear them?
They talk about us,
telling lies.
Well, that's no surprise.

Can you see them?
See right through them.
They have a shield.
Nothing gets through the field.

It doesn't matter what they say.
When they're jealous - the games people play...
Our lips are sealed.

There's a way to run.
Don't grieve those tears!
Inoccupance... (= Vacancy (or) "sleeping alone")
...seldom kills.
When you look at them
Look right through them
That's when they'll disappear
That's when we'll appear.

Hush, my darling
Don't you cry
Fallen angel
Close your eyes."

But, at least it's not "Alex the Seal"!!! LOL

sandring    Lun, 19/11/2018 - 09:10

That's when they'll disappear = Nothing will disappear
That's when we'll be feared = That's when we'll appear

Phil Ambro    Lun, 19/11/2018 - 09:19

LOL I don't think we'll ever really know, because they didn't put the lyrics in the album, did they? LOL
