Longing Was a Safe Place to Hide is the second and final full-length album released by Melbourne band Love Outside Andromeda. Overall, it is significantly mellower than their self-titled debut, distancing itself from some of the more frantic songs. Lead single "Bound by Hurt Dissolved" received radio play in late 2005, and later singles "Measuring Tape" and "Sparrow" began to receive play in July–August 2006, closer to the September 2006 release date of the album.


The title Longing Was a Safe Place to Hide is a lyric from the fourth track on the LP, "A Room Full of People".
