Safe and Open

by Emily Herndon

Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Lyrics

pain in my head

and cold rain on my skin

I don’t want to leave California

and I’m thinking about what you said

anyways, I smile so much more

with the sun as a permanent décor

in a southern land,

you hold my hand

safe and open have never been me

and December made that so easy

with the memories, and the families I’ve made,

with so much left and so much to learn

it seems so likely that I’ll burn

before the end

if I could just breathe

there aren’t any angels here

and I trust what I can see

and all the things that good people do

so I trust you

shut up and jump in my car

so I can get as far away

as it takes to escape

immobility

safe and open have never been me

and December made that so easy

with the memories and the families I’ve made

so much left and so much to learn

it seems so likely that I’ll burn

before the end

if I could just breathe

I’m so much better at listening

when I open my mouth its frustrating

to mumble under your gaze

I’ll close my eyes so you can run away,

when I open them up, I’m surprised you stayed

before the end, you’ll believe me

that I love you dearly
