Shelter Me Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've decided no one's knowing
Anything about where I'm going
I can't even talk to my friends anymore
Not blaming anyone for the mess I've gotten in
I'm only frightened by the things that I've done

Keep me safe from myself
I can't do it without your help
Your love's the finest thing
I've ever known
I want to come home

Thinking back when I was young
And you kept me safe from everything
Set me straight when I went wrong
Raised me to respect myself

I can offer no excuse for this senseless self abuse
And all the pain that I've caused you to feel
When I hurt myself it hurts you more
And that's what hurts me most of all
We shouldn't go on hurting anymore

Keep me safe from myself
I can't do it without your help
Your love's the finest thing
That I've ever known
I want to come home

I want to come home
I want to come home
I want to come home
I want to come home

Keep me safe from myself
I can't do it without your help
Your love's the finest thing
I've ever known
Take me now and shelter me
Before there's nothing left of me
