"Secret's Safe" as written by and Derek Hoffman Shane M Told....
I dug myself out of my grave
A box of pine and dirt remain
And every insecurity I've left there with it
I laughed at every word you said
With sparking eyes, a handsome head
And confidence we'll perfect
The things you see are nothing like me

I'll leave it all behind and justify it just between you and me
I buried all the misery, but it's clawing back now
It's every move and everything you do
You'll never make me forget the things I've seen
I know my secret's safe with me

I took the stairs, I climbed so high
On every floor I told a lie
And at the top I tried to fly
But stayed here with you
The door keeps opening
It brings a gust of cold and crawling skin
I'm comfortable but I just sinned silently
And that's just like me

I'll leave it all behind and justify it just between you and me
I buried all the misery, but it's clawing back now
It's every way you move and everything you do
You'll never make me forget the things I've seen
I know my secret's safe with me

Fail me, spill me
Leave this mess behind
You may not have a lot to give
But I'll still take it
Make me, hate me
Bottle me up inside
It's better there than where I've been

A perfect heart I never was
I lied to everyone I loved
It made them love me even more
And made me hate myself

I'll leave it all behind and justify it just between you and me
I buried all the misery, but it's clawing back now
It's every way you move and everything you do
You'll never make me forget the things I've seen
I know my secret's safe with me

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about a past relationship in which the person was never able to be themselves around the other. They felt they had to maintain a certain persona and be a certain way all the time. They realize looking back how miserable it was to have to bury their true selves in order to be loved & accepted by this person.
