Secrets
The Weeknd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Everybody here wants you
My love, my love
And I know that you want 'em too
My love, my love
I ask you what your heart desires
My love, my love
You tell me I'm the only one
My love, my love

It's a lie, a lie
I catch you every time
In your lust, your lust
Every time you close your eyes

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'

You told me not to worry 'bout
Those guys, those guys
You told me that you left it all behind
Behind

It's a lie, a lie
I catch you every time
In your lust, your lust
Every time you close your eyes

I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'
I hear the secrets that you keep
When you're talkin' in your sleep
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'

Wipe the lust from your eyes
I see that you're not mine
I can see the lust in your eyes (wipe the)
You can't hide it (lust from your eyes)
You can't be the one (I)
I rely, we're divided (see that you're not mine)

I hear the secrets that you keep (the secrets that you keep)
When you're talkin' in your sleep (talkin' in your sleep)
I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep (the secrets that you keep)
When you're talk, talkin', talkin' (oh)
I hear the secrets that you keep (hey, the secrets that you keep)
When you're talkin' in your sleep (talkin' in your sleep)




I hear the secrets that you keep, keep, keep (the secrets that you keep)
When you're talk, talkin', talkin'

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Secrets" by The Weeknd express the themes of infidelity and betrayal in a relationship. The singer is aware that his partner is not entirely truthful with him and is secretly sleeping with other people while also lying about it. Even though the partner reassures the singer that he is the only one, he knows it's not true, and he catches her every time. The song suggests that the singers' relationship is built upon false promises and secrets.


The lyrics suggest that the singer is tormented by his partner's infidelity, and he hears the secrets she keeps when she talks in her sleep. It is as if the sleeping partner's subconscious reveals the truth that she does not tell her partner. These secrets are a reflection of the dishonesty in the relationship, and the singer feels betrayed by his partner's actions. The repeated phrase "I hear the secrets that you keep" emphasizes the sense of betrayal and suspicion in the relationship.


Overall, "Secrets" is a song about a broken relationship based on lies and secrets. The lyrics express the singer's frustration with a partner who cannot be truthful with him. The song is a sad reminder that sometimes love cannot conquer all, and when a relationship is based on lies and deceit, it is ultimately doomed to fail.
