The Royal Knockout – Safe And Sound lyrics

I was a dead man walking, when you called me out by name
And took me by the arm.
You squeezed me in that narrow gate.
And gave me a brand new place to stay
Away from any harm.

I’m safe and sound.
Every time they come around you.
Hold me in your arms.
And all around.
People wanna tear us down.
But they’ll never take me away
When you came and lay your life down.

I never found good reasons.
To ever run away, when things just fall apart.
But when I stop doing as I please,
Working salvation out on my knees.
You never seem so far.
