about

Lamar Holley's autobiographical Confessions reveal the private wishes and worries of one college student's most agonizing aspirations: love and friendship.

From the skin-deep beauty of "Biology" to the genuine "Flower", Lamar confesses his way through secret crushes, slow dances, rejection, and lovesickness.

Loaded with power pop arrangements and candy-coated harmonies, Confessions of a College Student is a rollicking concept album that is largely academic but mostly comically, tragically, and hopelessly romantic.

Track Name: Secretly
SECRETLY

It’s the way she smiles that mesmerizes, hypnotizes.
That’s why I feel the way I do.

I keep standing here at the back of the room.
I guess I’ll just love her secretly.

It’s the way she laughs that captivates me, penetrates me.
That’s why I feel the way I do.

I keep saying “hi” like it’s nothing at all.
I guess I’ll just love her secretly.

Leaving words unspoken (They’re written down.)
will leave my heart unbroken. (I’m just a clown.)
When it comes to loving you, (You wear my crown.)
my silence is golden.

It’s the way she smiles that mesmerizes, hypnotizes.
That’s why I feel the way I do.

I keep standing here at the back of the room.
(I keep holding back.)
I guess I’ll just love her secretly.
