"When Your Love Is Safe" as written by and Patrick J Grossi....
I woke up early in the morning and you weren't there
I woke up early in the morning and I could have been anywhere
But I know exactly where I am
Somewhere between making love and being friends

I tried to call you in the evening but you didn't pick up
Something about being busy, hustling just trying to make a buck
But I know that's just the way you are
Just trying to forget, but this ain't no ordinary love

When your love is safe
I'll be giving it all away
When your hope is gone
I'll be up till dawn

Something that I want to tell you that I'll never say
Sorry that I ever told you all those thinks I didn't mean inside my head
But you know that's just the way I am
Just trying to forget but this ain't no ordinary love

When your love is safe
I'll be giving it all away
When your hope is gone
I'll be up till dawn

When your love
Your love
Your love
Giving it all away
When your love
Your love
Your love
Giving it all away

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song... He's just saying he's insecure in the friends-with-benefits relationship... He can give her love when she's into it, but he feels anxious and worried when she pulls away. He's saying "Dammit chill out; I'm tryna love you"... I always get chills when he says "But I know that's just the way you are". :(

    My InterpretationIt's about a guy who wants to get over breaking up with his girlfriend while admittedly accepting and realizing it is because of his tactless and insensitive ways on dealing with her and their problems that made her turn her back on him.

    "When your love is safe, I'll be giving it all away" - referring to the girl being happy (without him) and him letting go once that happens.

    "When your hope is gone, I'll be up till dawn" - once she moves on, he'll miss her but won't do anything about it to feel the pain he truly deserves.
