[Verse 1]
C
When we set out on the road
        F                     C
I said, “Boys, we’re heading west
        Am     G        F             C
We will walk under this sun until it sets”
C
We had the best intentions
        F                     C
And the road was straight and true
        Am       G     F             C
We promised that we’d follow it to you
C             F            Am G/B   F   C

[Verse 2]
C
With our shadows growing longer
        F           C
We picked up our pace
      Am     G        F         C
Knowing if we rested, we would rust
C
As the cold crept up our backs
           F              C
Under the last remaining rays
    Am       G       F                 C
We never stopped to think who we could trust

[Pre-chorus]
   D7               F            C
And when the night came to the highway
   D7               F            C
The horizon turned black from blue
F                  Fmaj7
Oh, Mother Nature, where are you going?
G
Can we go too?

[Chorus]
                    C7
We’re longing to be safe
C7   C13  C7  F  C7    C7
Safe in your arms     Safe
C7   C13  C7  F  C7
Safe in your arms
Em7/B  Em/D  G/D  C
Safe    in   your arms
Em7/B  Em/D  G/D  C
Safe    in   your arms
          D7           F      C   
Can we be safe in your arms again?
C          F        Am G/B   F   C

[Verse 3]
C
We poisoned all the ghosts
        F           C
We poisoned all the rivers
      Am     G        F                 C
We burned away the last light of the day
C
When we finally hit the coast
        F           C
We had nothing to deliver
                Am     G        F                 C
And there was nothing there that we could take away

[Pre-chorus]
   D7           F            C
Where would we be without you?
   D7           F            C
How will we make it through?
F                     Fmaj7
Follow Mother Nature, wherever she’s going
G
You must go too

[Chorus]
                    C7
She's longing to be safe
C7   C13  C7  F  C7    C7
Safe in your arms     Safe
C7   C13  C7  F  C7
Safe in your arms
Em7/B  Em/D  G/D  C
Safe    in   your arms
Em7/B  Em/D  G/D  C
Safe    in   your arms
           D7           F      C   
Can she be safe in your arms again?
Em7/B  Em/D  G/D  C
Safe    in   your arms
Em7/B  Em/D  G/D  C
Safe    in   your arms
       D7               F      C   
Can she be safe in your arms again?
C          F        Am G/B   F   C
