So keep me safe from harm
I promise to do my best
So stop me unraveling, stardust and sawdust
Conquered the sea, made its peace with me
There's no security in purity

So keep a special song, learn to play for me
Keep a stubborn heart safe from villainy
Stared at your sky through Bob Dylan's eyes
Just another baby blue that will break you

Save you and mistake you
Believe in you and deceive you
Electrify and upset you
Get drunk with you and secure you

My shoes are not made for walking
My eyes are not made for crying
My voice is not made for singing
My heart is not made for breaking

Fell out of bed when he said
"I don't want to fall in love"
But it's too late for some of us
Don't fall in love if you want to die in peace...

    General CommentOk, corrected lyrics:

    So keep me safe from harm
    I promise to do my best
    So stop me unraveling, stardust and sawdust
    Conquered the sea, made its peace with me
    There's no security in purity

    So keep a special song, learn to play for me
    Keep a stubborn heart safe from villainy
    Stared at your sky through Bob Dylan's eyes
    Just another baby blue that will break you

    Save you and mistake you
    Believe in you and deceive you
    Electrify and upset you
    Get drunk with you and secure you

    My shoes are not made for walking
    My eyes are not made for crying
    My voice is not made for singing
    My heart is not made for breaking

    Fell out of bed when he said
    "I don't want to fall in love"
    But it's too late for some of us
    Don't fall in love if you want to die in peace...
