Back Porch Patreon Session # 26: Safe Behind Bars
 
Safe Behind Bars

by: Nora Jane Struthers


Things could have been different

I could have held on

To a woman so faithful

She'd never do me wrong

I could be in my kitchen

wrapped up tight in her arms

not a long and forsaken

and safe behind bars


Safe behind bars is a dangerous place

Haunted by visions of blood on her face

Time can't recall a fallen star

And it's a dangerous place, a dangerous place

Safe behind bars


Things could have been different

She could have been sweet

My heart could have waited

Before loving too deep

I might have known

Not to swoon at her charms

Maybe then I'd be somewhere

And not safe behind bars


Safe behind bars is a dangerous place

Haunted by visions of blood on her face

Time can't recall a fallen star

And it's a dangerous place, a dangerous place

Safe behind bars


It's a dangerous place, a dangerous place

Safe behind bars
