"One Safe Place" as written by Marc Cohn and Alexandre Desplat....
How many roads you've traveled
How many dreams you've chased
Across sand and sky and gravel
Looking for one safe place

Will you make a smoother landing
When you break your fall from grace
Into the arms of understanding
Looking for one safe place

Life is trial by fire
And love's the sweetest taste
And I pray it lifts us higher
To one safe place

How many roads we've traveled
How many dreams we've chased
Across sand and sky and gravel
Looking for one safe place

    General CommentGood ending in a good movie. Upside an anger.

    I think one safe place here is comfortness and peace of mind. Place with love all around.

    General CommentThis is such a sweet song, I want to play this song at my wedding or something haha. This song makes me think of just finding the perfect person to be with your entire life and never wanting anything more. After life's ups and downs, imperfections and obstacles, at the end of the day, it's a breath of relief when you come home to find your soul mate waiting for you. I have yet to find "the one" and all I can hope is that I will one of these days. Until then.. this song will fill me up with hope and scenes of a beautiful future with a family and the perfect someone.

    General Comment"One Safe Place" is what I cannot seem to find. My Baby is far away. Everyday on the phone, I get the feeling that she's further and further away. Verdammt, why is my life "trial by fire"... so often.
