Armiger told Roughstock
the story of how she wrote the song with Mallary Hope. "At the time, we had been trying to write a few different times before that, and it just hadn't worked out," she recalled. "We were both touring like crazy. So when we finally sat down, the first thing we did was just talk and caught up on each other's lives."
"She was seeing somebody new at the time, and it was somebody that she really, really liked," Armiger added. "You could tell. It was at the stage where you know you love that person, but you just don't want to say it yet, but they just make you feel incredible and you're so happy. So we wrote this song called 'Safe.' We wrote it in less that 30 minutes, and it was the first song we ever wrote together. It's one of my absolute favorites on the album."
