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


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

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--


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.

    I first thought it was for rue, meaning it's ok to let go, to die. That she'll be safe and sound. But then I got thinking, that's when I figured it was for peeta. For when they are in the cave and he is hurt. Saying it's ok. You're safe and sound with me. But it could also be for prim. For the night before the reaping. This is what I think;)

    Rue, reminds me of rue. It is an amazing tribtue to the girl> this song is just like that moment. It was sad, yet magical your safe no matter what, even if your world is crashing, with me you are safe. No mater what. Just close your eyes, you and ill be safe and sound, no matter what the world does< the world sucks, alot but this songs says don't you worry your safe and sound.

    To me its that you want to keep someone you love safe. So that you can hold them and keep them forever so that they wont just slip away like ice. If you love someone don't let them go for any reason. If someone is reding this I am only litle but I am wise to things like this so take my advise and don't let them slip away. Keep them safe and sound.

    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.
