Ollie Wade’s new song “Safe With Me” is a touching ode to an extremely hard subject. Wade has explained that this song is a letter to his partner who had been in an abusive and toxic relationship before him. His goal with the song was to explain to her that he would always be there for her, and would take as long as she needed to feel safe again. He would stand by her while she healed from the pain her past relationship had put her through, and he would love her through it all. The song is an anthem for all of those who have been in toxic relationships, and he encourages all those affected to get out while they can and find the one who will show them the true love and compassion that they deserve.
The song itself is delicate and uplifting, and mimics the tone of voice Wade uses with his partner. He is soft spoken and encouraging, and his love seeps through in his words. The song starts quiet and calm, and slowly builds into an inspiring chorus. This gradual incline mirrors the love and trust his partner builds for him, learning to lean on him in ways she hasn’t been able to before. In the chorus, Wade sings, “Well if you’re falling apart / I’ll mend your broken heart / Just know that you’re safe with me / and if you fall to the floor / I know you’ve been there before / just know that you’re safe with me”. He allows his partner to open up and trust him, and learn the true meaning of a relationship. In every situation, he will catch her and love her without restrictions.
