Verse 1
Our words came out sharp like edges of knives
When all we needed was to talk things through
This is the part where we learn that love is
Not what we say but what we do

Verse 2
This is my country
This is your country too
There are so many things we need to change
It’d be too easy to let them overwhelm us
It’d be too easy to let things stay the same

Chorus
Am I Safe Here (yes you’re safe here)
Am I needed here (yes you’re safe here)

Verse 3
They convinced us that this was not our problem
None of our concern
And then they chiselled and chiselled until everything we loved and everything we earned was taken away – we let them take it all away

Verse 4
This is my country
This is your country too
There are so many things we need to change
It’d be too easy to let it overwhelm us
It’d be too easy to let things stay the same

Chorus
Am I Safe Here (yes you’re safe here)
Am I needed here (yes you’re safe here)

Refrain
While we stood and argued
About the cost (of it)
Look how we let it slip out the backdoor
What was the price of what we lost?

Verse 5
You won’t remember any of these meetings
Any of the things you did or did not own
This is the part where we learn that love is
Not having to do this on your own.

Verse 6
This is my country
This is your country too
There are so many things we need to change
It’d be too easy to let it overwhelm us
It’d be too easy to let things stay the same

Chorus
Am I Safe Here (yes you’re safe here)
Am I needed here (yes you’re safe here)
Am I Loved Here (yes you’re loved here)
Am I needed here (yes you’re safe here)
