Safe From Harm

Written


May 2002

Notes


Sometimes when a relationship comes apart, it can be easy to forget that the other person involved will probably feel bad too, and has probably lost just as much. Safe From Harm follows the course of pain, healing, understanding and empathy that many go through during this time.

It can be easier to assume someone else is not affected like you are, but in reality that may not be the case.

Lyrics


How many symphonies go unfinished?
How many reasons come straight from the heart?
How many romances manage to finish what they start?

Why must my sunshine glare so brightly?
Why must my fortune shift with the seas?
Why must my true love keep on walking?
Come back, come back, come back to me

Forget how you were the day after
How you felt when you woke up alone
When safety is far
And you're lost in a storm
And your sails are torn

Unsure as I stand, as down as I am
There's no cause for alarm
As used as you've been, as bleak as it seems
You will be safe from harm

When you've tried to sleep late at night
And keep waking thoughtful and no-one's beside you
And you can't quite make out the dream that had held you
And you think you don't need to sleep and nothing's wrong
But only after dawn

Unsure as I stand, as down as I am
There's no cause for alarm
As used as you've been, as bleak as it seems
You will be safe from harm

If I try to suggest you're untouched
That you suffer unconditional love
All this punishment is still not enough
Throw me out for a fool whose love's never been true
If I'm too lost in losing you
And you're lost in thinking me thinking you
Safe from harm
