A Safe Place to Land

Album: Amidst the Chaos (2019)
  • "Safe Place to Land" is a poignant and powerful ballad in which Sara Bareilles duets with John Legend. The pair know each other well as Legend played the title role opposite Bareilles' Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar.
  • So say the Lord's prayer twice, hold your babies tight
    Surely someone will reach out a hand
    And show you a safe place to land


    The song is about immigrant family separation at USA's southern border.
