Dreams


I’ll keep you safe 
Try hard to concentrate 
Hold out your hand 
Can you feel the weight of it 
The whole world at your fingertips 
Don’t be, don’t be afraid 
Our mistakes they were bound to be made 
But I promise you I’ll keep you safe 

You’ll be an architect so pull up your sleeves 
And build a new silhouette 
In the skylines up ahead 
Don’t be, don’t be afraid 
Our mistakes they were bound to be made 
But I promise you I’ll keep you safe I’ll keep you safe 

Darkness will be rewritten 
Into a work of fiction, you’ll see 
As you pull on every ribbon 
You’ll find every secret it keeps 
The sound of the branches breaking under your feet 
The smell of the falling and burning leaves 
The bitterness of winter 
Or the sweetness of spring 
You are an artist 
And your heart is your masterpiece 
And I’ll keep it safe 



Dismiss the invisible 
By giving it shape 
Like a clockmaker fixes time 
By keeping the gears in line 
Don’t be, don’t be afraid 
God knows that mistakes will be made 
But I promise you I’ll keep you safe 

As you build up your collection 
Of pearls that you pulled from the deep 
A landscape more beautiful than anything that I’ve ever seen 
The sound of the branches breaking under your feet 
The smell of the falling and burning leaves 
The bitterness of winter 
Or the sweetness of spring 
You are an artist 
And your heart is your masterpiece 
And I’ll keep it safe

-"I'll Keep you Safe" Sleeping at Last
