i'll keep you safe.

another beautiful song.  i feel like this one is a bit of a love letter to cole bear and my future babies.  i've put the lyrics underneath so you can have a read and see why. 

i'm a real soppy git nowadays.  i mean, i was pretty soppy to begin with, but geez, having a kid has completely busted it wide open.  

my heart completely swells every time i look or think about cole.  he is pure potential and my interpretation of this song is exactly that.  that he can be or do anything he wants, and through it all, we will be there to support and encourage him.

ok i'm off to go get a grip.  enjoy.

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

your 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 of 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
