Now that you're here
it seems every one of us seems to take the wrong way home

Now that you're safe with me
Trying to get a handle on the name of love


Safe and sound
So safe for now
You're safe and sound
So safe for now
Safe and sound
So safe for now
We're safe and sound
So safe, oh no


How does it taste to when you're screaming away your loved man
(As you walk away, it makes you feel sweet, warm)

Doctor said, "Son, you should carry a gun, all right?"

But it's the way that you talk
And it's the way that you move
Gravity's one thing
and gravity's something

But how's about coming down
It's a time and place in which to be alone
But lately it just don't seem so alone

You're no good night, oh right
Your other plane is skipping on, you must get flown

Safe and sound
So safe for now
You're safe and sound
So safe for now
Safe and sound
So safe for now
We're safe and sound
So safe, oh

Aaah, aaah....


Here, watch your back from here

    General CommentOk, I'll comment because you seem like you really want someone to, but I don't really know what the song's about. I think the abuse interpretation is a bit of a stretch. Nowhere in the song does it say that the person is reluctant to go home, it just says, "Every one of us seems to take the wrong way home." I think that line is basically saying that everyone wants the same things in life (happiness, satisfaction etc.) but they don't know how to get them. I do agree with your interpretation of the parts about gravity, "how about coming down," and "your elevator..." I think it is trying to say that the person is avoiding reality, living in some sort of fantasy land, isolating themselves, and the speaker thinks it's "no good" when they're "not around" (in their own little world). There's a time and place to be alone, but you can't do that all the time. The safe and sound part also fits in with that because when people just stay in their security zone all the time it seems like everything is fine but really there is a claustrophobia involved, it's like you're trapping yourself. I think that's why the song, and the lines "safe and sound" in particular sound so doomy and gloomy - not what you'd expect from a love song. I also like your insights on the title. I never thought of it like he already tried to communicate this to her six times. That explains further why he sounds so demoralized. I like this song, it's great.
