Shelter Lyrics

by Ray LaMontagne

I guess you don't need it
I guess you don't want me to repeat it
But everything I have to give, I'll give to you
It's not like we planned it
You tried to stay, but you could not stand it
To see me shut down slow
As though it was an easy thing to do

Listen when
All of this around us will fall over
I tell you what we're gonna do
You will shelter me my love and I, I will shelter you
I will shelter you

I left you heartbroken
But not until those very words were spoken
Has anybody ever made such a fool out of you
It's hard to believe it, even as my eyes do see it
The very things that make you live are killing you

Listen when
All of this around us will fall over
I tell you what we're gonna do
You will shelter me my love and I, I will shelter you
I will shelter you, I will shelter you
I will shelter you, I will shelter you

Listen when
All of this around us will fall over
I tell you what we're gonna do
You will shelter me my love and I, I will shelter you
If you shelter me too, I will shelter you
I will shelter you
