Safety Rope by Mick Flannery

I can only speak for those that do not know me,
I can only write the words that would not show me,
I will never quite explain what I’ve been doin’.

I am you and you are me but we are nothing,
My heart broke and rose to go but I’m not goin’,
‘Cause I loved you long before the day I told ya.

And it’s you and it’s me and it’s time on our side,
Tonight I want you to be my safety rope,
Oh but tonight you’ve got a heavy load.

We both shine for morning time we’d spend together,
We don’t pine or cross the line or go one better,
And we would sing to those who’d bring us stormy weather.

And it’s you and it’s me and it’s time on our side,
Tonight I want you to be my safety rope,
Oh but tonight you’ve got a heavy load.

And she said that I want my innocence man,
I want my confidence back,
I don’t wanna feel like this no more.
Pull up they push and play you,
Now you’re this fool they made you,
I don’t wanna feel like this no more.
