People say you've been around
How about you and me get down
How about you and me get down
Baby I know you've been around
Unmake your bed
Don't think about what lies ahead
Don't you wanna be misled
Don't you wanna be misled

Fame
Seems a far-off day
When enough was never enough
Vain
How I played my hand
One more reckless man in the rough
Strange
How we explain
The story that we've lived through
Change
My karma train
The person I can be for you is

Safe
(Safe - in the heat of the moment)
A stillness that comes to me
When I'm close to you
Safe
(Safe - at the speed of atonement)
A feeling that runs so deep
That it scares me, too

Dazed
By my own escape
From the single state I was used to
Face
My catch 22
Can I stay this way if I choose to
Wrong
To be so contained
Now I can't explain
What is happening
Strong
Is the human chain
As it pulls me through
What I bring to you is

Safe
(Safe - in the heat of the moment)
A stillness that comes to me
When I'm close to you
Safe
(Safe - at the speed of atonement)
A feeling that runs so deep
That it scares me, too
Safe
(Safe - in the heat of the moment)
A stillness that comes to me
When I'm close to you
Safe
(Safe - at the speed of atonement)
A feeling that runs so deep
That it scares me, too

(Fame
Seems a far-off day
When enough was never enough
Vain
How I played my hand
One more reckless man in the rough)

Hook a finger wink an eye
Caresses running up your thigh
Scratch my surface dig in deep
There's always secrets left to keep
Safe not sound
Who made these rules
Crowd control for enlightened fools
So come on boy let's change the pace
Come, feel the chill of my embrace
People say you've been around
How about you and me get down
How about you and me get down
Baby I know you've been around
Unmake your bed
Don't think about what lies ahead
Don't you wanna be misled
Don't you wanna be misled

Safe
(Safe - in the heat of the moment)
A stillness that comes to me
When I'm close to you
Safe
(Safe - at the speed of atonement)
A feeling that runs so deep
That it scares me, too
Safe
(Safe - in the heat of the moment)
A stillness that comes to me
When I'm close to you
Safe
(Safe - at the speed of atonement)
A feeling that runs so deep
That it scares me, too.
