Hunger Games Soundtrack: Taylor Swift, Safe and Sound

Somehow, I didn't recall hearing this song when watching the Hunger Games. At all. Most of my friends also didn't remember this song in the movie. So we were taken aback when our more "knowledgable" friend told us that this song's actually already 4 months old (the movie was released at end of March).

She's so pretty hereee.. I wasn't really into Taylor Swift before, but this MV totally change my perception about her. Her voice in this ballad is so pretty.. so soft and soothing. And her appearance and hairdo here is really sweet. She wore a white long, country-style muslin that looks wonderful with her gentle voice and gaze.

The song is inspired by the thoughts and emotions of Katniss (Hunger Games' main character) in her solitude. The serene background is also intended to portray her hometown.. before she was taken to the weird far away land to join the weird games. So full of hope and beautiful :)



Do you love the song?

Taylor Swift - Safe and Sound

I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said, I'll never let you go
When all those shadows almost killed your light
I remember you said, Don't leave me here alone
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Don't you dare look out your window darling
Everything's on fire
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Hold onto this lullaby
Even when the music's gone

Just close your eyes
The sun is going down
You'll be alright
No one can hurt you now
Come morning light
You and I'll be safe and sound

Just close your eyes
You'll be alright
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound...
