GABRIELLA CILMI | Safer

LYRICS:

That someone far from home said to me
I can tell, luck has run dry
What do you see?
The sky above's kind of broken and torn
And every rose plucked from my heart's twisted with thorns

And just when I think I'm on top
I wonder how I'll get back down
And just then the moment is lost
I stumble and I hit the ground

And I just wanna feel a little safer
Yeah I'm on my knees
And I don't wanna leave this all to later
The pain I just can't take
And I just wanna feel a little safer
Yeah I'm on my knees
And I don't wanna leave this all to later
Just drifting on the breeze

That someone in my head said to me
Oh I can tell
Deep in your heart you'll find what you need
Wasted time building castles with sand
With every night I'll watch them
Fall and slip through my hands

And just when I think I'm on top
I wonder how I'll get back down
And just then the moment is lost
I stumble and I hit the ground

And I just wanna feel a little safer
Yeah I'm on my knees
And I don't wanna leave this all to later
The pain I just can't take
And I just wanna feel a little safer
Yeah I'm on my knees
And I don't wanna leave this all to later
Just drifting on the breeze

REVIEWS:
x (...) it's the slower tracks like Safer that best give those freakishly-mature vocals justice and showcase Higgins & Co's underheralded knack for writing ballads. Disko Dollies
