The Safe Side Lyrics

by Chris Cagle

Have you ever wondered what life would be like
If you'd only went left instead of taking that right
If you had waited just ten more minutes to leave the house
Would it all be different, yeah

Every decision everything we choose
Has a consequence whether we win or lose
Nobody knows that any better than me
I left her standing at the station with a ticket and a dream

Yes, she's the train that I didn't take
The big commitment I just couldn't make
For fear of breaking my heart, I didn't risk the ride

Yes, she's the lesson I learned the hard way
Now being lonely is the price I pay
The river of regret runs deep and wide
Here on the safe side, oh

I still remember the night she left
She said she didn't want to lose me but she had to find herself
I could've stopped her or got on board with her
But now it's too late to reconsider

Yes, she's the train that I didn't take
The big commitment I just couldn't make
For fear of breaking my heart, I didn't risk the ride

Yes, she's the lesson I learned the hard way
Now being lonely is the price I pay
The river of regret runs deep and wide
Here on the safe side

Sometimes the greatest risk of all
Is never taking one at all

She's the train that I didn't take
The big commitment I just couldn't make
For fear of breaking my heart, I didn't risk that ride

Yes, she's the lesson I learned the hard way
Now being lonely is the price I pay
The river of regret runs deep and wide
Here on the safe side
Oh, oh I don't want to be alone
Here on the safe side
Here on the safe side
