about

‘Safer There’ is written in the style of a gospel ballad. This track is about finding a place of refuge.

lyrics

Take me away to where there’s silence
Where nobody tells you how to live your life
Take me away from vicious voices
There’s nothing here that feels right
I wanna fly to a safe place
I wanna find some solid ground
There’s no one here that knows me anymore
I wanna go to a place that I won’t be found

I’ll keep my head down
Two feet running from the crowd
Avoiding disapproving glares
I’ll keep my head down
I don’t wanna be afraid
So I’ll find a hideaway
I’m safer there

I won’t stop running until I’m free and I’m safer there
And there’s nobody that’s gonna stop me
I’ll find a place for me somewhere
And I’ll know I’m safer there

Every day’s another battle
Something will trip you up and break you down inside
In my mind I know there’s somewhere
That I can go and it’ll be all right

I’ll keep my head down
Two feet running from the crowd
Avoiding disapproving glares
I’ll keep my head down
I don’t wanna be afraid
So I’ll find a hideaway
I’m safer there

I won’t stop running until I’m free and I’m safer there
And there’s nobody that’s gonna stop me
I’ll find a place for me somewhere
And I’ll know I’m safer there
Ooh I’m safer there
I’m safer there
