Bad Things Coming, We Are Safe - Emmy the Great

Edward come and sit with me,
I fell asleep and now I am afraid.
The sun came up so quick and I
Have always been suspicious of the day.
The dream I had that you were in -
Turned bad and then it finished,
And I am glad to be awake.
And glad,
To be with you,
Cause I feel safe when we're together.

Read to me again
About the King who took
his daughter to the feast.
Tell me how she lifted up her veils
And she laid them at his feet.
Execution in her eyes,
She pointed to her prize, and said,
"I want him to be mine."

And everyone,
Knew the man was going to lose
his head tonight.

I heard a sound,
Across the lawns,
Was like a hoof being taken from a horse.
I understand,
What you describe,
That there are things we don't decide -
They are decided for us.
Still I would trust,
That we are safe when we're together.

Edward, come and tell me,
Are there restaurants on Jericho today?
Look out of the window on St Giles -
Do the palaces remain?
I have woken from a sleep.
I am sure the world is different,
That it's changed.

Edward come and tell me,
Are there restaurants on Jericho today?
I heard a sound,
Across the lawns,
Was like a wave sweeping houses
from the short.
I understand,
what you explain,
That there are things that you believe,
And you think you will see me again.

Still it remains,
That if I could,
I'd string a cord,
RIght from my stomach
Into yours.
I'd stand beside you,
The day you face the tide,
I think I could make it turn around,
Know I could make it go dry.
Cause you and I -
We are safe when we're together.

We are safe when we're together.
We are safe when we're together.
We are safe when we're together.
We are.
