Lyrics

Keep me Safe

Keep me safe, keep me alive
Sing me the feel-good songs don?t make me cry
Keep me warm, keep me sound
Sing me the feel-good songs when the sun goes down

Don?t you sing no love songs here for me
I just want to have a good time
Thinking bout life and love that?s lost
Where?s the sense in that?
Oh where?s the sense in that?

So keep me safe, keep me alive
Comfort me with the drunkard?s lullaby
Keep me warm, keep me sound
Sing me the feel-good songs when the sun goes down

Don't you sing me no songs of passion and pain
I don?t want to think
Drink myself into oblivion and shame
I don?t want to feel, no I don?t want to feel
And when I wake up I?ll do it again, I'll do it again

(Break)

Keep me safe, keep me alive
Sing me the feel-good songs don?t make me cry
Keep me warm, keep me sound
Sing me the feel-good songs when the sun goes down
Comfort me with that old familiar sound
Sing me the feel-good songs when the sun goes down
Oh oh oh oh?.oh oh?.4 Times)
