Need Shelter

Lyrics: Neal Casal

Sung by Neal Casal with Phil Lesh & Friends in 2013

Looking up at the pictures on his wall
Gazing out of his windows hoping one of them might fall, sometimes
I just can't forgive myself of anything
I don't get around too much here anymore
I used to fly high every night but really I hit the wall, I'm so tired
And I just can't convince myself of anything at all

And I don't need a hand but I do need shelter
I've been running wide awake too long
So if you take one chance on a two-time user
Never again will you be left alone
Never again will you be left alone

I was once a young girl in my prime
Long hair running down my neck, grew so long and fine, sometimes
I just can't forget myself, and all those things
A night to me is like an open wound
Every friend that I've ever lost and their stories come pouring through me, I'm so tired
I just can't strip myself of anything I used to know

I don't need a hand but I do need shelter
I've been running wide awake too long
So if you take one chance on a tw-time user
Never again will you be left alone
Never again will you be left alone

I don't need a hand but I do need shelter
I've been living fast asleep too long
So if you take one chance on a two-time user
Never again will you be left alone
Never again will you be left alone
Never again will you be left alone
