"Safe and Sound" as written by and Alexander P Kane Benjamin P Cooper....
You took your hits with the bruises on the soles of
your feet
Well who's to say if they're deserved? But you're
turning reckless now
I heard you saying through your teeth, that you'll take
them down first

But I saw you flinch, when the doctors got the claws in
you
I saw your smile start to crack
It's not so funny when you're sunk and there ain't
nothing you can do
And your options are all dead ends

But there's no way out
I'll let you build your home with me till the clocks
run down
When your looks run out
Call me and I will come and fix you get your feet on
the ground
When there's no way out
Call me and I will come and bury you all safe and sound

And all this time you've been drifting out with the
tide my friend

But you can have what's mine if it helps you stay
afloat
If I close my eyes I can't watch you drown anymore my
friend
But I'll tell you lies if it helps you sleep at night
And the more we fight, the more we don't get right
And the more we fight, the more we don't get right

Heard they broke you
That you gave in
That you dropped
And the fight had left you

But don't you worry
Makes no difference
From the start
Your options were all dead ends

When there's no way out
I'll let you build your home with me till the clocks
run down
When your looks run out
Call me and I will come and fix you get your feet on
the ground
When there's no way out
Call me and I will come and bury you all safe and sound

    General CommentBeautiful song. When I first became acquainted with this song I cried like the first thirty times I heard it.

    General CommentAdmittedly, this is a pretty touching song for me and life experience to this point and unfortunately had a very real parallel in my life. This song is pretty bluntly about a friend getting a terminal diagnosis and trying to support them despite the "dead ends" that may be there. The lying to make them stay with you and not check out, the being the support until the "luck runs out" and having to bury the person you love.
