You can ignore the "が".  It doesn't really mean "but" in the sense of
exclusion or opposition in this context.  It's just an ambiguous
conjunction, needed to indicate the inverted order.  Similar to the
English pair:

"Just between you and me, the boss is about to get fired."
"The boss is about to get fired.  But it's just between you and me."

where the "but" indicates that it's the preceding sentence that's our
secret.  (Interestingly, in this case "and" might convey some sort of
enjoyment that the boss is going to be fired and it's our secret.  Ie,
for my dialect, "but" is more neutral than "and"!)
