Concept check

How does a smart contract handle private keys?

Here is what I'm thinking...
A smart contract can control funds. Transactions need to be signed by the private key from the address where the funds are stored. If smart contract code “lives” on the public blockchain, then you can't put the private keys there. So where are smart contracts private keys stored?

What am I missing here?

Thanks!
