Album: Four the Record (2011)

  • Just like the fringe on my boots
    You move with every step I take
    You walk in front of me to make sure
    That I don't fall and break
    My old heart, 'cause with you I could never

    Just like the leather on my saddle
    We get prettier with time
    Together in the weather, shiny on the other side
    Polished and changed for the better

    With you I'm safe
    With you I'm safe

    I'll follow you just like a shadow only closer in
    If you get tired and bound
    I'll find a way to free your hand
    I'll wash them clean of everything but me

    Sometimes you might get thirsty, so I'll catch the rain
    Just like the ice in your glass I'll rattle when you need a drink
    You'll never run dry of love or anything

    I'll keep you safe
    I'll keep you safe
    I'll keep you safe

    I keep a locket on my neck that holds your face
    I'll spend forever making sure I can erase
    Every tear you ever thought about crying

    You make me feel like I'm the only girl in the whole wide world
    I wanna hold you like a handful of diamonds and pearls
    That I'd guard with my life or die tryin'

    I'll keep you safe
    I'll keep you safe
    I'll keep you safe
    I'll keep you safe Writer/s: Dennis Lambert, Francine Vicki Golde
