Safe And Sound

Lyrics

playI could lift you up
playI could show you what you wanna see
playAnd take you where you wanna be

playYou could be my luck
playEven if the sky is falling down
playI know that we'll be safe and sound

playWe're safe and sound

playI could fill your cup
playYou know my river won't evaporate
playThis world we still appreciate

playYou could be my luck
playEven in a hurricane of frowns
playI know that we'll be safe and sound

playSafe and sound
playWe're safe and sound
playSafe and sound
playWe're safe and sound
playHold your ground
playWe're safe and sound
playSafe and sound

playI could show you love
playIn a tidal wave of mystery
playYou'll still be standing next to me

playYou could be my luck
playEven if we're six feet underground
playI know that we'll be safe and sound

playWe're safe and sound

playSafe and sound
playSafe and sound
playHold your ground
playSafe and sound

playI could lift you up
playI could show you what you wanna see
playAnd take you where you wanna be

playYou could be my luck
playEven if the sky is falling down
playI know that we'll be safe and sound

playI could lift you up
playI could show you what you wanna see
playAnd take you where you wanna be

playYou could be my luck
playEven if the sky is falling down
playI know that we'll be safe and sound

playWe're safe and sound
playWe're safe and sound
playWe're safe and sound
playWe're safe and sound

playSafe and sound
playWe're safe and sound
playSafe and sound
playWe're safe and sound
playHold your ground
playWe're safe and sound
playSafe and sound
playWe're safe and sound

meaningMeaning

Regarding the track's meaning, Merchant noted:

"It seems like every generation feels like it's living in the worst of times, and of course there are horrible things happening, but the average person is better off now than he or she was 50 years ago. In some ways 'Safe and Sound' is an antidote to the human tendency to think in apocalyptic terms and not really look at the logic of the world around us. Things are getting better and there's a lot to be positive about."
