Joss Stone Security Lyrics

Last updated: 11/22/2011 10:00:00 AM

A loss that would have thrown
A hole through anybody's soul
And you were only human after all
So don't hold back the tears my dear
Release them so your eyes can clear
I know that you will rise again
But you gotta let them fall
I wish that I could snap my fingers
Erase the past but no
You cannot rewind reality
Once the tape's all unrolled

If your spirit's broken and you can't bear the pain
I will help you put the pieces back
A little more each day
And if your heart is locked and you can't find the key
Lay your head upon my shoulder
I'll set you free
I'll be your security

A moment of despair
That forces you to say that life's unfair
It makes you scared of what tomorrow may bring
But don't go giving into fear
Stop hiding all alone in there
The show keeps going on and on
But you'll miss the whole damn thing
I wish I had a crystal ball to see what the future holds
But we don't know how the story ends till it's already told


On any clock upon the wall
The time is always now
So baby kiss the past goodbye
Don't let the future blow your mind
Just sit back and chill
Take things as they come
You can't be afraid
To live for today
I will be with you each step of the way

Chorus (2x)

Greatest Feeling | Reviewer: Danny P. | 11/22/11

Hi, my name is Danny P. this was the very first song I wrote with Joss Stone and Steve Greenberg when she was only 15 years old when Steve brought me in to meet meet her after he had just signed her. I remember that day like it was yesterday, I started playing some chords on the wurlitzer and we wrote the song and recorded it in about 2 hours. It pleases me more than anything reading the comments and how this song has been comforting to many people. Years later, and I'm now going through my own difficulties and I'm online and decided to listen to this song as well and it has so much more meaning to me with the positive lyrics to help surmount these tough times. I'm happy that God inspired us that day knowing that it would help you wonderful people through your hardship. I wish you all the best and thanks for letting my creativity be part of your lives.

Kind Regards,
Daniel "Danny P." Pierre

i wanna cry :( | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/13/10

this song has so much meaning to me in two ways! it told me to let go of my first love and move on. he did and i had to also.
it also had a meaning for the 3 years my father beat on me and left me in the walmart parking lot.
we performed this song at the 2008 pride convention for the abused kids and i was a dancer in the song. it means so much to me.

Well.. joss stone is awesome i absolutly love her album, this song 'Security' means so much to me. It felt like my life was beginning to go down hill, i started losing my friends and i thought people didnt believe in me and what i could do. I always got put down for doing the things i wanted to to, like becoming a model for 'pretty polly' i would love to do that.. then i came across this song on joss's album and it really matched my life. I needed something to make me believe i could do anything i put my mind to and now i want to be a model more than anything. This song is everything i could have wished for at that time. I love all of her album but this song is really special, went im not feeling happy with my self i flick the song on and take time out to think about the things thats happened in my life.
Thankyou so much Joss!

Complete Peace | Reviewer: Theresa | 1/31/07

When my daughter had passed away, it took a long time for me to mourn her loss. There were no words to describe how I was feeling...but my husband stood by me like no other. When this album was released, he picked it up for me, thinking I would like the song, "You Had Me". Then he came across "Security". He told me this is how he felt about me, and the loss of our child. The mourning began, then & there, I wept like a child. Today, I am much better, and we are still strong as ever.

The way the gospelsound runs through this number is both chilling and enervating! Wonderful
