Safety lyrics

River running through our city
Ancient river, it's highs divine
Cold and alive winter's children
The cheeks are crimson, invincible lies
We shed the years like skin,
Forget where we begin
And hide behind our own children.

The safety can break your heart
The bones knew we grow in who we are
Fight to stay alive, not to grow apart
But safety can break your heart.

City lights fall on the river
And run together, it looks so sad
He's like that, know that he outgrew her
He ran right through her and bailed to life
That's a cautious way to live, throw it to the wind
And climb aboard that old train bridge.

'Cause safety can break your heart
The bones knew we grow in who we are
Fight to stay alive, not to grow apart
But safety can break your heart.

Safety can break your heart
The bones knew we grow in who we are
Fight to stay alive, not to grow apart
But safety can break your heart
Oh, safety your break your heart.
