Safe and Sound

from Early Visions and Mixes by Darren Lock

A song about wanting to protect those who are left behind...


You’re never prepared for goodbyes
Or the many tears in your eyes
And the scars it leaves behind
It catches you by surprise

All the people that you know
Are just a part of the rodeo
We’re on the same old road
A one way travelling show

I’ll come back and haunt you
Hiding around every corner

A breath on the breeze
The god rays through the trees

You’ll never know that I’m there
But you’ll sometimes be that aware

I’ll be travelling down the wires
With my electromagnetic disguise

You’ll never see me
I’ll be just memory
But I’ll be by your side
To keep you safe and sound

And though I’ll be gone
Life might seem very long
But it is gone in a dash
Like a camera bulb flash

Be sure of the path you take
You can learn from my mistakes
Remember the smiles we had
Even when the times were bad

I’ll come back to haunt you
Hiding around every corner

The knock at the door
The creak in the floor

You’ll never know that I’m there
But sometimes I’ll catch you unaware

I’ll be whispering in your ear
Chasing away all your fear

You’ll never see me
I’ll be frozen in memory
I’ll still be by your side
To make sure your safe and sound

Nobody wants to say those goodbyes
Nobody wants to really die
But we’re just energy
Drifting on the cosmic sea

So wipe the tears from your eyes
Remember you are born to die
You can’t escape it if you try
So enjoy life while you have it
