Taylor Swift – Safe And Sound lyrics

[Verse 1]
I remember tears streamin' down your face
When I said I'd never let you go,
When all those shadows almost killed your light.
I remember you said "Don't leave me here alone",
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight
.

[Chorus]
Just close your eyes,
The sun is going down.
You'll be alright,
No one can hurt you now.
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound.

[Verse 2]
Don't you dare look out your window,
Darlin' everything's on fire.
The war outside our door keeps raging on.
Hold onto this lullaby,
Even when the music's gone,
Gone
.

[Verse 3]
Just close your eyes,
The sun is going down.
You'll be alright,
No one can hurt you now.
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound
.

Ooh, ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Ooh, ooh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Just close your eyes,
You'll be alright.
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound
.

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Oohhh
.

    So powerful. It really shows the concept of true peace. That even though everything is "on fire", as long as you know that I'm here and I'll protect you, you're going to be safe. This also really demonstrates a mother's love for her child. I always cry when I think of it. You could also interpret it to have a biblical meaning as well. Just put your faith in God and as long as you believe and obey his word, he'll protect you.

    Safeand sound means a lot to me because I absoutly love the hunger games and well it means to me that well I guess katniss that um I guess katniss is singing to prim or saying well b safe and sound but when I'm watching the video taylor is like a future version of prim walking around in the ruins of district twelve saying that we will be safe and sound.

    I think it means that sumone is leaving, tries to protect the one he loves and keeps reassuring he/she that no matter what happen to him, the one he loves should always believe that everything will turn out right. Like during a war the on he loves should never risk his/her life to know what's happening to him and just believe that after the war; rain; fire, the sun will rise and soon they'll have each other, not like before but still with each other safe and sound. :)

    This song isn't just about The Hunger Games and Disrict 12. It's about The Civil War. It gives listeners a very emotional experience. Thought fans can relate to The Hunger Games, not many people can relate to the danger and melancholy of The Civil War. It shows that someone will always be there to protect you and fight for you. Everyone has someone to love them. Wars are terrible. In the beginning, she is saying goodbye to someone, probably her father. She says she'll never let him go, and tears are streaming down his face. This song really does mean a lot. Especially the part where it says, "Don't you dare look out your window, darling everything's on fire." This is very symbolic in terms of with the song. This was a real experience for people in the past. Everything was on fire. This song shows the world can be a dangerous place, but just don't worry. You'll be alright because if you sleep tonight you'll still be here in the morning. Can you even imagine being in their position with what they had to go through? Can you imagine being in the middle of a war?! Don't worry, come sunrise we'll be okay.
