Safe and Sound - Capital Cities

Safe and Sound by Capital Cities on Grooveshark

The Experience:
Sometimes we find ourselves in a hurricane of frowns,  life seems a disaster, the sky is falling down. Capital Cities tells us to look, not at our problems, but at our solutions: the people we love. 'You could be my luck.' If your problems put you down, stop trying to solve them alone. The people you care for can lift you up... and take you where you want to be. Love is the only way to be Safe and Sound.

Music Video:
Zany flashbacks from 1913 to 2013, each 20 years or so brings a new crisis (World War I, WWII, Atom bomb scare, Vietnam, Cold War climax, Terrorism)... But that's not the centre of the video. After each crisis passes, joy not only survives, but brings a new dance style to remind us all that we're still Safe and Sound.

My Take:
It's not like Sebu Simonian is just naive about being Safe and Sound. His family fled a civil war in Lebanon, and it's not like Capital Cities has had any previous hits. This is what they really feel - love makes us Safe and Sound.

Ask Yourself:
When I'm down, do I let others lift me up? Or do I try to save myself by myself? What's the best way to be safe and sound?

LYRICS:

I could lift you up
I could show you what you want to see
And take you where you want to be
You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound
We're safe and sound

I could fill your cup
You know my river won't evaporate
This world we still appreciate
You could be my luck
Even in a hurricane of frowns
I know that we'll be safe and sound

(Safe and sound)
We're safe and sound
(Safe and sound)
We're safe and sound
(Hold your ground)
We're safe and sound
(Safe and sound)

I could show you love
In a tidal wave of mystery
You'll still be standing next to me
You could be my luck
Even if we're six feet underground
I know that we'll be safe and sound
We're safe and sound

Safe and sound
Safe and sound
Hold your ground
Safe and sound

I could lift you up
I could show you what you want to see
And take you where you want to be
You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

I could lift you up
I could show you what you want to see
And take you where you want to be
You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we'll be safe and sound

We're safe and sound [4x]

(Safe and sound)
We're safe and sound
(Safe and sound)
We're safe and sound
(Hold your ground)
We're safe and sound
(Safe and sound)
We're safe and sound
