BackgroundEdit

Emma expresses her anger on this track by singing about her disapproval to the idea of covering up her relationship with her (now ex-) boyfriend, Luke Cutforth. Emma wants the world to know that her and Luke are together, even going as far as alluding to the idea that Luke treats her like his sidepiece.

LyricsEdit

When we first met
You used to call me baby
You said you love me
Now I barely hear a word you're saying
And when your friends ask if you and me are dating
You're looking guilty, shuffling your feet and hesitating

Well fuck that, I don't need that
Don't want it to get out?
Well you should be damn proud
It's getting dark here sitting in your closet
With your other skeletons like I'm some kinda secret

Don't wanna be your Undercover Lover
Don't wanna be your friend, and kiss you when the night ends
Don't wanna be your dirty little secret
I want the world to know who's hotel you go to

Don't understand why you wanna keep it quiet
If it was me I'd be starting fucking riots,
If you can't handle who I am, then get the fuck out
I'm not hanging around for something I could do without

I will admit that, from the very beginning
You said you didn't want to give a reason for gossiping
I just feel like a puppet with a mouthpiece
So won't you cut the strings, so I can stop pretending?

Don't wanna be your Undercover Lover
Don't wanna be your friend, and kiss you when the night ends
Don't wanna be your dirty little secret
I want the world to know who's hotel you go to

Don't understand why you wanna keep it quiet
If it was me I'd be starting fucking riots,
If you can't handle who I am, then get the fuck out
I'm not hanging around for something I could do without

Don't wanna be your Undercover Lover
Don't wanna be your friend, and kiss you when the night ends
Don't wanna be your dirty little secret
I want the world to know
(I want the world to know)

Don't wanna be your Undercover Lover
Don't wanna be your friend, and kiss you when the night ends
Don't wanna be your dirty little secret
I want the world to know who's hotel you go to

Don't understand why you wanna keep it quiet
If it was me I'd be starting fucking riots,
If you can't handle who I am, then get the fuck out
I'm not hanging around for someone I could do without
