Staind – Safe Place lyrics

Another day
Inside my world
I'm married to
You and this road.
A road that never let me sleep
There's no way to escape these
Demons I am forced to keep.

And then I find you here
Through your eyes
Everything's clear
And I'm home
Inside your arms,
But I'm alone for now.

I mean the best
With what I say.
It doesn't always
Sound that way
I never learned to
Work things out cause
In my family all we
Ever seem to do is shout

and then I find you here
Through your eyes,
Everythings clear
And I'm home
Inside your arms,
But I'm alone for now.

Alone for now

And when I try to sleep
The drugs I take
Are killing me
I think of you
To ease my pain
But you're so far

But now it's time to say goodbye
I love you baby
Please don't cry

And then I'll find you here
Through your eyes everythings clear
And I'm home inside your arms
but I'm alone for now.

Alone for now

Music Facts about Staind and "Safe Place" song

Safe Place meanings

  • u
    This song is a montage of my relationship/life with my boyfriend. The reason I say montage, is bc we isolate ourselves & have maybe one friend each that we rarely see. Otherwise, he plays video games on his computer, and I either drink or take pills. We have different relationship styles/needs so there isn't any intimacy or sexual chemistry. We do love each other & care for each other, and bc of the lack of friendships, we turn to each other to feel safe & to really talk through/figure out life's wonderful pitches. When I am scared or worried, he is the one who makes me feel better. His family is located in another state. I am close with my family & they love him, but they are dysfunctional bc of drinking. We are at a point where we both know that we are unhappy as far as a bf/gf relationship goes, but we do not want to actually take that next step and break up bc we are "home" to each other. We've tried working on our relationship by doing some of the activities we used to when we first started dating, but our same behaviors continue at the end of the week.
