Shelter Me Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

This ain't no place for losers
Or the innocent of mind
It's a full time job
For anyone to stay alive

The streets have satellite boundaries
For the war that's never won
What a wasteland for
Broken dreams and hired guns

Shelter me, baby shelter me
When I'm sinking down and losing ground
Shelter me

I've go to sleep with one eye open
The other holds my tears
In the darkness I can hide my heart
But not of my fears

In the morning like a soldier
I'll approach the battleground
Another day, another dollar bill
And the world goes round

Shelter me
Won't you shelter me?
When I'm sinking down and losing ground
Shelter me

Won't you shelter me?
Oh, shelter me
When I lose control on my way home
Shelter me

Every time I tumble down
I wanna pack it up and leave this town
But when I finally get the nerve
Get the lead out of the shoes
I'm thanking you, I thank you

Baby shelter me, please shelter me
When I'm sinking down and losing ground
Shelter me

Won't you shelter me?
When I lose control on my way home
Shelter me

Won't you shelter me?
Oh, shelter me, baby please
Shelter me

Stay back and shelter me
Come on and shelter me
When I lose control on my way home
Shelter me

Songwriters
DISTEFANO, NICK
