Safe and Sound
by
Matthew West

Can’t believe you’re here now
Tiny dream come true
The answer to a prayer now
I’m so in love with you
Couldn’t wait to meet you
Hope you like your name
I get the funny feeling
Life will never be the same

Safe and sound
You’re here with me now
Like I hoped you’d be
Safe and sound
You’re here with me now
And that’s all I’ll ever need

The world’s a scary place here
But baby it’s alright
I’ll make sure the coast is clear
So you can just sleep tight
But if you’re afraid of monsters
Like everybody is
I’ll be right beside you
Closer than a kiss

Safe and sound
I’m here with you now
And you will always be
Safe and sound
I’m here with you now
And that’s all you’ll ever need

Someday I’m gonna teach you
The reason why we pray
So that heaven’s love may reach you
Every single day
So, baby close your eyes now
And say a prayer with me
Lord, I lay me down to sleep now
But I know I will be

Safe and sound
You’re here with us now
And we will always be
Safe and sound You’re here with us now
And that’s all we’ll ever, all we’ll ever need
You’re all we’ll ever need

This was the theme song to my pregnancy.

There were moments when I was sure I would never hold you in my arms, so I’d hold my belly and cry and sing this song over and over, like a prayer hoping it would come true.

There were moments when I couldn’t believe I was so blessed as to actually be able to carry you, so I’d hold my belly and cry and sing this song over and over, rejoicing.

Every night, I’d hold you in my belly and sing these words to you, believing that they were true.

The greatest joy of my life was when they placed you next to me and I kissed your cheek and got to whisper “Hi, I’m your mommy. You’re safe and sound now.”
