​Safe As Houses

This song is by Deb Talan.

Are you somewhere safe as houses?
Close your eyes count one, two three.
Run and hide now are you ready?
Ollie, ollie in-come-free.
Itsy bitsy spider crawls
Up the clear blue glass, down the broken walls.

All the games we played as children
To fight against the dark
Red, Red Rover, four-leafed clover
Ashes, ashes all fall down...

Feeling sick, stay home inside
See the TV news, and the New York skyline.
I want to make you a sheltering sound
But right side's wrong, and upside's down.

All the games we played as children
Not to feel so small
Red, Red Rover, four-leafed clover
Ashes, ashes all fall down, all fall down

And it's a beautiful world
Sun is shining so bright
And it tilts through the late summer leaves
But now there's a hole in the sky.
God I wish I could believe in and pray
When everything changes in a day.

Are you somewhere safe as houses
Mother may I run and hide?
Don't throw stones at other people
Hope your brother's on your side

And all the games we played as children
To fight against the dark
Red, Red Rover, four-leafed clover
Ashes, ashes all fall down, all fall down
All fall down.
