Safe to Land
by Jars of Clay



Getting tired from all this circling
not much grace left on a broken wing.
Feel the wind trying to push me down.
It happens everytime I get to town.

I search for shelter near the mines we swept
I guess forgiveness hasn’t happened yet.
There are no words that I can say to you
that turn this careless sky from black to blue

So I’m asking you ...is it safe? Is it safe to land?
Cause I’m not going to follow an empty heart.
Is it safe? Is it safe to land?
Cause the long fall back to earth is the hardest part.

I”m no weather for apologies
I need your runway lights to burn for me.
And if you say that I can come around , I will love you right
Yeah, I won’t let you down, I won’t let you down,
cause I’m coming home if these wheels touch down.

I’m coming home, I’m waking you up in the middle of the night
I’m not giving up, I’m gonna stay til we make it work
we’re not going down, even if it gets worse
we’ll work it out, yeah we’ll work it out
I need your light..guide me in.
oh ...yea is it safe?
