Response: Don't Worry

Rescue Song (RAC Remix)
Mr. Little Jeans


My dress is torn, you have a black eye 
you got from a giving kind
but your coat is big and I am warm
I'll ask if I can walk you home

grey like the gravel under our shoes
the sky doesn't clarify
simple is something of a mystery
no longer making sense to me

got a gun and an eagles eye
but would like somewhere safe to hide
you've a reason and so have I, it's true

I'm gonna rescue you
so you can rescue me too
make it a rendezvous

I got my best dress on
and you've a smile and a bruise
so come and rescue me, 
and me you

I am the heat in an empty room 
the cold coming through the walls
your sofas' old, but I am new
and there is better on the brew

my breath is soft, your hands are unlocked
un-manned and un-vertical
I feel strings without the black n blues
a weekend in a weekdays shoes

got a gun and an eagles eye
but would like somewhere safe to hide
you've a reason and so have I, it's true

I'm gonna rescue you
so you can rescue me too
make it a rendezvous

I got my best dress on
and you've a smile and a bruise
so come and rescue me 
and me you


Why this response? 
The call image is this empty, dark, closed room with neon lights glowing with the words "DON'T WORRY".  My response song is about two empty people rescuing each other from their closed, dark worlds. Even when we're empty, we can cling to each other. We can give each other hope. We can encourage each other not to worry.
