Ward Thomas’ ‘Safe’ Should Be Used For An NSPCC Advert

I am in love with ward Thomas’ voices and their songs are so inspirational and sound so beautiful.

And in particular their song ‘Safe’ which is on their record breaking number 1 album ‘Cartwheels’, is very inspiring and I personally think it would be the perfect soundtrack for an NSPCC advert.

There are some very poignant lyrics including “Someone stole your youth and tried to expose your sweet innocence all too soon”, and another one “So you don’t have to be quiet And you don’t have to feel ashamed”. 

And there are some other poignant lines that are perfect for the charity, including “You’re not to blame”, and “You are not what happened to you”.  

The full lyrics for the stunning track are:

Someone took your truth and lied to it
Someone stole your youth
And tried to expose your sweet innocence

All too soon

Like the shadow of a thief
Breaking in every night
The scene of sharp relief
Every time you close your eyes
You still see it, it follows you

So you don’t have to be quiet
And you don’t have to feel ashamed
This is not your war
To fight and you’re not to blame
‘Cause I know you’ve been stumbling
Searching for a place to hide and heal
Somewhere you can rest,
Forgive yourself and feel

You’re safe here
You’re safe here

Someone took my rights
And treated me wrong
Someone stole my light,
But I am still strong
In silent ways,
They don’t see

So we don’t have to be quiet
And we don’t have to feel ashamed
This is not our war
To fight and we’re not to blame
‘Cause I know you’ve been stumbling
Searching for a place to hide and heal
Somewhere you can rest,
Forgive yourself and feel

You’re safe here
You’re safe here
You’re safe here
You’re safe here

You are not what happened to you
You are not what happened to you
You are not what happened to you

You are not what happened to you
You are not what happened to you
You are not what happened to you

You are not what happened to you
You are not what happened to you
You are not what happened to you

So you don’t have to be quiet
And you don’t have to feel ashamed
This is not your war
To fight and you’re not to blame
‘Cause I know you’ve been stumbling
Searching for a place to hide and heal
Somewhere you can rest,
Forgive yourself and feel

You’re safe here
You’re safe here
You’re safe here
You’re safe here

For me this would be a perfect, poignant and though provoking soundtrack to be used on a new NSPCC campaign.
