Shelter

Lyrics: Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Jeff Matson
Music: Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Jeff Matson

I sit amazed at the heat on a cloudless day
Creeping through the roof, burniní up the floor
I am undone for sure
Yesterday, though the winds blew fair
Today, they say people beware
Hasten to a shelter from the storm

Again, I feel it in my bones
Again, the seeds are being sown
Change is in the earth and in the air
Signs are everywhere

Ooh-ooh, shelter from the heat
Ooh-ooh, shelter from the cold
Ooh-ooh, shelter from the flood
Ooh-ooh, shelter for the soul

I see the shadows in the streets from a crowded room
Peekiní through the cracks, listeniní through a door
I hear the sounds of war
And they say, we are not to blame
Today, let the anger take aim
Piercing to the heart and to the soul

In the fray, I hear a baby cry
Today, how many people die
Clinging to a promise from despair
The lies are everywhere

Ooh ooh, shelter from deceit
Ooh ooh, shelter from control
Ooh ooh, shelter from the fear
Ooh ooh, shelter for the soul

Ah, such a wonderful world
Ah, there's beauty everywhere
Ah, always changing
Ah, ainít she beautiful
Ah, mmm, yeah

Ooh ooh, shelter from the hate
Ooh ooh, shelter from the greed
Ooh ooh, shelter from the threat
Ooh ooh, shelter from the thief

Ooh-ooh, shelter from the heat
Ooh-ooh, shelter from the cold
Ooh-ooh, shelter from the flood
Ooh-ooh, shelter for the soul

Ooh ooh, shelter from deceit
Ooh ooh, shelter from control
Ooh ooh, shelter from the fear
Ooh ooh, shelter for the soul

Ooh-ooh, shelter from the heat
Ooh-ooh, shelter from the cold
Ooh-ooh, shelter from the flood
Ooh-ooh, shelter for the soul
