Nobody knows
Just why we're here
Could it be fate
Or random circumstance
At the right place
At the right time
Two roads intertwine

And if the universe conspired
To meld our lives
To make us
Fuel and fire
Then know
Where ever you will be
So too shall I be

Chorus:

Close your eyes
Dry your tears
'Coz when nothing seems clear
You'll be safe here

From the sheer weight
Of your doubts and fears
Weary heart
You'll be safe here

Remember how we laughed
Until we cried
At the most stupid things
Like we were so high
But love was all that we were on
We belong

And though the world would
Never understand
This unlikely union
And why it still stands
Someday we will be set free.
Pray and believe

Chorus:

When the light disappears
And when this world's insincere
You'll be safe here
When nobody hears you scream
I'll scream with you
You'll be safe here

Save your eyes
From your tears
When everything's unclear
You'll be safe here

From the sheer weight
Of your doubts and fears
Wounded heart

When the light disappears
And when this world's insincere
You'll be safe here

When nobody hears you scream
I'll scream with you
You'll be safe here

In my arms
Through the long cold night
Sleep tight
You'll be safe here

When no one understands
I'll believe
You'll be safe,
You'll be safe
You'll be safe here
Put your heart in my hands
You'll be safe here

    This should have been the theme song for highlander, the movie about immortals starring christopher lambert, sean connery, roxanne hart.
    The song fits the part perfectly whenever the two lovers always end up meeting each other in different lifetimes and eras as if the universe was
    Always conspiring to make them end up in each other's arms like soulmates.
    The band's obviously got the right formula for a good song which is melody, substance and catchy lyrics which is not all too common especially among filipino penned english songs.
    I wonder why they never promoted rivermaya's songs in the english speaking countries since i seriously believe they wouldve gained some following with their style of songwriting which has some britpop influence in it.

    i love this song...
    Remember how we laughed
    Until we cried

    But love was all that we were on
