Keep Me Safe resurrects feelings of teenage love in uncertainty, while real-life thoughts ride the ethereal wave of Cub Sport’s pop. The track starts with sounds that are a mile away, only to roll up beside you once the first line of lyrics starts. The lyrics are like a tender sentiment in the back of your mind in the morning progressing into a vision spinning out of control by night.
According to the group, this track “details the secret teenage romance Cub Sport’s Tim Nelson and Sam Netterfield, as well as the internal conflict Nelson felt in the period afterwards.”
I wrote Keep Me Safe about a euphoric but complicated time. Shedding some light on it now feels like I’m validating my younger self and celebrating the magic in something I was so ashamed of at the time.Tim Nelson
