I thought that, in addition to the obvious relationship context, there is a bit of self-reference word play: if the secrets are shared, they are no longer secrets; if the guy runs away (before she shares the secrets), they will remain secret. Mountain Hikes (talk) 04:30, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

- No, but it took two tries for me to load and even then the main content seems to be broken. There's also no web.archive.org archive. Fabian42 (talk) 14:03, 26 January 2018 (UTC)
