"It's Not Safe" as written by and Bill Demain Amy Rigby....
Is it safe to go outside?
Have I waited long enough
to face the world?
How can I face the world
When every tree and traffic light
is asking me the reason
why I let you go
and I don't really know

All the old men on the block are my Greek chorus
Kids draw hearts there on the sidewalk for us

Chorus:
It's not safe to go outside
Like I feared
I need someplace that I can hide
This is getting weird
It's not safe to go outside
It's not safe,
since you went away

A mannequin who looks like you
is in the window a store
and can it be?
I swear he winked at me
And all the headlines that I read
They say you're out of here
and I'm the one to blame
They I say I threw the game

Now I'm running for my life, like Dustin Hoffman
I guess that I've been lucky once too often

Chorus

So I keep looking behind me
again and again
But there's no escaping
what we might have
what we might have been

Chorus
