No one can hurt you now
In this haven safe and sound
No one can save you now
From this grace that you are drowning in
Just hold your breath on your way down.

This fortress of tears,
I've built from my fears for you.
This fortress won't fall,
I've built it strong for you.

No one can free you now
From the chains around your heart,
Don't be afraid now,
Just drive in this emptiness,
And hold your breath on your way down.

This fortress of tears,
I've built from my fears for you,
This fortress won't fall,
I've built it strong for you.

No one can hurt you now,
In this haven safe and sound
Just hold your breath on your way down.

This fortress of tears,
I've built from my fears for you.
This fortress won't fall,
I've built it strong for you

This fortress of tears,
I've built from my fears for you
This fortress won't fall,
I've built it strong for you.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song...."no one can hurt you now in this haven safe and sound" its so sweet, easily one of my favourite songs ever.
    It's obvious what this song is about. It's about caring so much for someone you love and that you wont let them be hurt again in any way.
