REVOLVER What’s "The Secrets Between" about?
ALEXIA RODRIGUEZ I have made a lot of mistakes in relationships, so in this song I wrote about keeping secrets from my significant others in the past. I am always scared to be honest through lyrics but always find a way to get them throug and I feel like this song is the best representation of tha fact.
Which part of it did you come up with first? What was the inspiration?
I came up with the chorus guitar riff first and that instantly sparked a melody. I always write melodies before lyrics. "The Secrets Between" was inspired by drunk mistakes, desperate measures, and lonely times I experienced on tour and have vowed never to repeat.
Was this an easy song to write?
It was fun to write because I drew a guitar riff from our EP [2006's When Silence is Broken, the Night Is Torn] into this song as the main riff. I love reinventing songs. This song was--according to me--the best rendition of our EP track "This Love You Breathe."
What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
We have gotten a lot of good feedback about how heavy and catchy the song is. The only bad feedback was from my boyfriend who thought I was keeping secrets from him and putting it in this song.
