The Temptation of a Familiar Heartbreak

The Chorus: A Battle of Logic and Emotion

The chorus of “Safer” serves as an internal battle between self-preservation and a reckless heart:

“I know that it’s danger I know I’m safer runnin’ Oh, runnin’, oh Oh, runnin'”

The repetition of “I know I’m safer runnin'” highlights that Tyla is fully aware she’d be better off without this person, yet she’s caught in the seductive trap of a love that makes her feel alive.

Past Love, Present Warnings

The second verse and pre-chorus delve further into Tyla’s hesitation. She draws on painful experiences from a past love:

“The last time that I met someone like you Had some good times and we had some bad times too”

She acknowledges that she’s likely to experience a similar pattern of heartbreak, yet she can’t bring herself to walk away.
