Kylie Minogue - Confide in Me

I stand in the distance
I view from afar
Should I offer some assistance
Should it matter who you are

We all get hurt by love
And we all have our cross to bear
But in the name of understanding now
Our problems should be shared

Confide in me, confide in me

I can keep a secret
And throw away the key
But sometimes to release it
Is to set our children free




Stick or twist the choice is yours
Hit or miss what's mine is yours
Stick or twist the choice is yours
Hit or miss what's mine is yours


[repeat 4 times]

The song was acclaimed by many music critics where some critics labelled it as one of Minogue's best singles to date, and praised it for its commercial release. Commercially, the song was successful, peaking in the top twenty in Australia, Finland, France, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The song was also released in the United States, where it managed to chart on the US Hot Dance Club Songs. An accompanying music video was released as well, where it featured Minogue in six different costumes, and Kylie persuading her audience to confide in her.

The video was a hit, charting at number one on Dial MTV and at number sixteen on MTV Europe's top twenty countdown.
