SAFE PLACE

Written down as it arrived in my head, the whole process took  20-25 minutes. 

Catalysts - one of my favourite people in the world sobbing while I sat across from them in a diner, then me coming home and listening to Randy Newman's "Dark Matter"  three times straight.  

 

LYRICS

With a heart like yours and a faith thats true                         
I don't see why you don’t just sail through  
When the world gets mean and it's on your case                  
I will be your safe place 

When the fog comes down and the long night falls           
And you can't see beyond those walls
You search and search for your brave face
I will be your safe place

You talk about empty days
Places you don't fit
I like to think you open up
But you share about a tenth of it
You give me that smile
Say things you think I want to hear
But we don't have to chase solutions
Long as I can make this clear

You're a case in point
You don’t back certs
But you do get lonely and lonely hurts
So when you can’t find mercy
And you can’t find grace
I will be your safe place

I don't wanna join the dots
Never gonna sit and judge
I love it when you curse the hero
Give the old order a nudge
You give me that smile
Say things you think I want to hear
But we don't have to chase solutions
Long as I can make this clear

Let the wheels go round, let the big change come
Let the days go by, let the road roll on
You’ll be fine my friend
But just in case
I will be your safe place
