Throw away the radio suitcase
That keeps you awake
Hide the telephone, the telephone, telephone, in case
You realize that sometimes you're just not ok
You level off, you level off, you level off
But it's not all right now
You need to understand
There's nothing strange about this
You need to know your friends, you need to know that

I'll be waving my hand watching you drown
Watching you scream quiet or loud
And maybe you should sleep
And maybe you just need
A friend as clumsy as you've been
There's no one laughing
You will be safe in here
You will be safe in here

Throw away this very old shoelace
That tripped you again
Try and shrug it off, shrug it off, shrug it off
It's only skin now
You need to understand
There's nothing fake about this
You need to let me in, I'm watching you, and

I'll be waving my hand watching you drown
Watching you scream, no one's around
And maybe you should sleep
And maybe you just need
A friend as clumsy as you've been
There's no one laughing
You will be safe in here
You will be safe in
(ooh ooh ooh...)
Ya ya ya ya ya ya

I'll be waving my hand watching you drown
Watching you scream quiet or loud
And maybe you should sleep
And maybe you just need
A friend as clumsy as you've been
There's no one laughing
You will be safe in here
You will be safe in here
You will be safe in here
In here, (aha aha) in here, (aha) in here, in here (oh aha)
In here, (aha aha) in here (aha).

    Hahaha totally funny idea's above because they are so cleche. How about this one, clumsy is a state of being, therefore the song talks about being in the state of being "clumsy". Thus " you you will be safe in here" lyric.
