Safety in Numbers Lyrics

by Joan Osborne

There is safety in numbers
And people and things
And in big wads of money
And great big platinum rings

And no one will ever
Get near me again
There is safety in numbers
In numbers my friend

There are people who watch you
In your windows at night
And they follow your movements
In the cold fluorescent light

They wait for their moment
Theyll get you in the end
There is safety in numbers
In numbers my friend

I was just like you before
You want somebody to love
Since that day I learned the score
I know how to rise above

There is shelter in power
And promises of pain a
Ad in lovers and lawyers
And dogs pulling at the chain

And no one will ever
Get near me again
There is safety in numbers
In numbers my friend

You will find me well protected
When you come around today
So remember what I told you
And continue on your way

'Cause no one will ever
Get near me again
There is safety in numbers
In numbers my friend

There is safety in numbers
In numbers my friend
There is safety in numbers
In numbers my friend
