Andrew Peterson - My One Safe Place Lyrics




You're my oasis
The eye of the hurricane
One look at your face is
All I need to remember my name
So I run away home
Yes, I run away home to you

I was an orphan
Caught in a thunderstorm
You opened the door and welcomed me
Into your arms
So I run away home
Yes, I run away home to you

I believe in the love of the Father and
I believe in the power of grace
I believe that He brought us together and
You are my one safe place

You are a fortress
I am under siege
You're a light in the forest
I am a lost boy out in the trees
So I run away home
Yes, I run away home to you

Don't be scared, it's alright
It's a weight you were not meant to shoulder
But you bear so much light
And it's brighter each day we get older
And I know that you're broken too
But you are a sacrament God has spoken through
He's spoken through you

I am my beloved's
My beloved is mine
And the banner that hovers over us
Is older than time
So I run away home
Yes, I run away home

I believe in the love of the Father and
I believe in the power of grace
I believe that He brought us together and
You are my one safe place
My one safe place
My one safe place

    I just heard this for the first time! This is such an amazing song! I love it!

  2. ams30393

    Who did you write this song to Andy?

  3. Maxfli82

    My favorite love song of all time. When I think of my wife and hear the line “you are a sacrament God has spoken through” I can’t help but tear up. To think that God speaks to me through her love and correction is so humbling. Thank you Andrew Peterson for that reminder.

  4. Fiorella

    I believe in the love of the father you are the one safe place 🙏🏼🎚

  5. Deanna Lacny

    Have loved his music from early on. Had him sign my guitar strap at a concert. He signed right next to Phil Keaggys name with an arrow pointing at Phil saying "I'm not worthy".

    Amen Andrew ╬

  8. Jungie

    Wow. First time hearing this song and first time hearing you. Just wow. This song is so pretty, it makes me smile!

    Archynan

    Sup. I agree. Great song.

  9. Rich Dugan

    I may never have the chance to meet and to know Andrew, but I consider myself truly honored and blessed to have had the opportunity to experience the sharing of his heart. Thank you so much brother, for your openness and honesty.

  10. Nancy Cummings

    Jesus we love you and we need to LOVE YOU more!

  11. christina marie

    I was really emotional during this, because that house is such a prominent memory of my last year in Nashville... Hope we can meet up sometime when you guys come back to europe.

  12. SleepingKitten

    Getting some touchy feelings right now ;-;

  13. Daniel PC

    Perfect...

  14. 1983honesty

    What a beautiful song! When are you coming back to London?

  15. travis moore

    This song is fantastic in so many different ways... the tantalizing melody, the poetic use of 'run away home' (instead of run away from home), and the powerful meaning... Andrew Peterson rocks!

  16. Mike N Alli Madden

    So beautiful, thank you!

  17. Bella Jean

    thank you for singing songs about things that actually matter and are spiritually healing.

  18. Leah Branford

    So true.

  19. Dallas Merritt

    Andy is my favorite artist, and really my favorite musician in any genre because his lyrics speak to my soul as if God had woven some common thread through his children upon which AP's songs work to remind us of our Father's great love. This song is beautiful, like dozens of other songs Andy has written that break my heart and remind me that my rough edges can be continually worn down by reminders of the truth. There is hope in God's great love for us, and how He surrounds us with people who know Him, too. The ways we move through this world together reflect so much of God's goodness and glory. Healthy, Christ-centered marriages are so rare, at least from what I've seen. This song's celebration of those unions and their beauty is a breath of fresh air.
