"Safe and Sound" as written by Taylor Swift, Joy Williams, John Paul White and T. Bone Burnett....
When we come down
We'll be dreaming safe and sound
You better know why
Baby that's all I got

Is this the kind of sound that you want to hear?
Is this the kind of vibe that you want to feel?
Well I'm the type of guy that you'll never fear
You can do your thing then come near

Maybe I'm caught up in the thing that you know I like
See we could make time baby, overnight
Or we could make a grand escape
Or we can roll high baby

I'm all about the look that you're giving me
I'm all about the dance moves you're letting free
Well I'm all about a sweet sounding loving spree
So listen for my melody

Maybe I'm caught up in the thing that you know I like
See we could make time baby, overnight
Or we could make a grand escape
Or we can roll high by the way

When we come down
We'll be dreaming safe and sound
You better know why
Baby that's all I got

This the kind of sound that I want to hear
This the kind of vibe that I want to feel
Well you're the type of girl, baby on the real
Check it, one time what's the deal?

Maybe I'm caught up in the thing that you know I like
Yeah, we could make time baby, overnight
Or we could make a grand escape
Or we can roll high by the way

When we come down
We'll be dreaming safe and sound
You better know why
Baby that's all I got

    General Commentmaybe it's just that the lyrics are unintentionally shallow, but i feel like it's a song about escapism, you know just like living life at surface level and not ever going too deep, and the song is almost ironically justifying it, maybe i'm just reading too far into it though...

    General CommentI alwasy thought this was referring an acid trip, and his girlfriend started out having a good time ..but now she just wants it to end. So he is trying to calm her and tell her its going to eventually wear-off. --Becuase they're is nothing else you can do, but wait it out. (if you dont know)

    General CommentI think it's about being on ecstasy, because it keeps referring to rolling high, and being on ecstasy is commonly known as "rolling" because of the ups and downs in energy you get. And also, when you come down all you want to do is sleep after you've been awake forever. Like someone else said, maybe hes with a girl and she's not into it anymore and wants to come down, and he's just saying you just have to wait for now ("baby that's all i got").

    My OpinionI think this song is about sharing sex with someone almost like a drug. When we come down we'll be dreaming safe and sound(sex addict). Baby that's all I got, he is running on empty he gave it all sexually. Is this the kinda sound you wanna hear, the vibe you wanna feel. Is he doing it right? I'm the type of guy you'll never fear, you can do your think then come near. Leads me to think she is with someone else perhaps. Sweet sounding loving spree... I could be wrong.
