"Make The World Safe" as written by and Timothy Freedman....
I know they all want you
With your Desdemona's eyes
I'll keep you from danger
Save you from prying eyes

I can make the world safe for you
Come and live over here
I can make the world safe for you
Come and live over here
I can make the world safe for you
Nothing bad'll happen now

I've got a problem
I think you know how I feel
Plans piling up in the corner
Eyeballing me every hour

Got a balcony
And an orange tree
You can save up and visit New York with me
I can make the world safe for you
Nothing bad at all

You've got no money
So I know how you feel
When you see the glitter
Turn around it's no big deal

I can make the world safe for you
Come and live over here
I can make the world safe for you
Come and live over here
I can make the world safe for you
Nothing bad'll happen now

    General Commenthow come no one has put comments about the whitlams? i love the whitlams.. i always have and i always will. this song reminds me of summer.. mainly because i got it in summer and listened to it all the time. do you think maybe tim's singing about his daughter (not that he has a daughter)?

    General CommentI love the Whitlams also and wonder why no one writes about them, their songs are amazing! This song and well entire cd makes me want to pack up and move to Sydney (i'm currently in Brisbane) It's a fantastic album and yeah i just can't believe how much it calls SYDNEY (obviously it's meant to) but yeah, hmm i'm not making sense now

    General CommentWell, the band IS from Newtown in Sydney, after all. They've all spend far too much time in the Sando...

    General CommentI feel thing song is about two relatively normal people (with a few money worries, and an orange tree), who, like most others, can find the world dangerous.

    It's about being safe, by having something tangiable and stable in the world. Not something or someone perfect, but just having someone who can make you feel less alone. Like you're safe, even in the scary wide world.

    General Commentyeah i love the whitlams
    and i agree with illy that its about stability in all the worlds uncertanty. and how that stability whether its a lover or a comfortable secluded house, can make it all okay.
