Duran Duran: The Man Who Stole A Leopard

Do you know where we are?
I'm longing for the dark
Of our nocturnal life
It begins and ends with you
Don't spill my secret

you were once running wild
hiding in the morning mist
game demands I make you mine
I thought that I could resist but the leopard in you silently preyed on me

I made my way back home (did you follow her)
I handled her with care (quiet and controlled)
So elegant and sleek (when I'm not afraid)
I need her to be near (does she belong to you?)
Don't spill my secret

Deserted by my friends (don't they understand?)
she's so much more than them (how could they compare?)
so now she's just for me (no one else can see)
I watch her while she sleeps (be sure she dreams of you)
don't spill my secret

(It's been quite a while) since we were last outside
(and do you miss the chase?) now that we've both been tamed
(inside this gilded cage) prisoners of our thoughts
(you saved me from myself) don't spill my secret

Don't spill my secret
(Repeat during newscast)...


"Today a man was taken from his apartment on the New Jersey shore and arrested
Under suspicion of entrapment of a wild animal. Police, after forced entry,
Discovered a caged leopard in the building! The fully grown feline was said
To be surprisingly domesticated.? before preparing her for relocation.
A large crowd is gathered outside to watch the beautiful creature as a giant
Cage was lowered slowly onto the street by a crane. From here, the leopard
Was transferred into the back of a truck for the journey ahead. A thoughtful
Onlooker said it's extraordinary to think that any human being could have
Lived so?silently? with such a dangerous animal. Police are saying the captive has simply befriended? the creature and barely left her side. It's alleged that he hunted her in the wild and expertly forged documents to facilitate her illegal export to the United States of America.

The incident has already created much controversy and is now likely to lead to a major international investigation into the life of the man who stole a leopard."
