Liner Notes: 

Every Wednesday at 12 Noon East Coast/9AM West Coast I go live with songwriting or music production on my YouTube channel. Today I wrote this song. I couldn't find inspiration in the LyricCloud so I switched to Titler, saw "Safety in Songs" and the music floodgate opened and downloaded this song to me. Wrote the lyrics in abouty 20 minutes, then picked up the autoharp and sang it. You can watch the full video here: https://youtu.be/UJi1wFekc68

Lyrics: 

Safety in songs
v1
When I feel lost and afraid
Let down when I had it made
When I feel lonely like life has passed me by
Cold rain is pouring down
And all I can do is frown
And all I want to do is cry

Chorus
Take me away
Take me away
Don't make me go home, I want to stay
Take me away
Take me away
Don't make me go home, I want to stay

v.2
There’s a place I find peace
Comfort and release
From the heavy weights that bind me to the ground
I spread my wings and fly
Unweighted to the sky
And revel in the feeling I’ve found

Chorus
Take me away
Take me away
Don't make me go home, I want to stay
Take me away
Take me away
Don't make me go home, I want to stay

v.3
I find safety in my songs
And I can sing them all night long
They chase away the demons and the ghosts
And then I feel relief
From the trauma and the grief
I find the peace I’ve needed the most

Chorus
Take me away
Take me away
Don't make me go home, I want to stay
Take me away
Take me away
Don't make me go home, I want to stay

Take me away
Take me away
Don't make me go home, I want to stay
Take me away
Take me away
Don't make me go home, I want to stay
