Shelter (live) - Lyrics

She came down from the sky when the storm left her broken
And open and bleeding for me
And when God sends you gifts, you should use them with pleasure
And treasure what lands in your reach

When she woke under covers too cold to be hers
She had eyes like two torches of fire
And her nails and her teeth would have helped in her struggle
If her wounds hadn't rendered her mine

"You're no captive" I told her
And I showed her the door
Which stood open as leaves blew in through
Cos when people beleive it's their own path they've chosen
They won't see their cage for the view

Oh but you know women these days
They're as fickle as they are immeasuable
And a man is a man
When his fate's in his hands
And his grasp is as hard as it is invisble

So why do ask if it's greener outside
When I've showed you the flowers through your window
And where is the thanks for the promise I made
To protect you from all that is cold in a hard world

Well she smiled, I beleive
And I combed out her hair
And I prayed that her thoughts would turn grateful
Then I rang out her blood so she'd know that she's bled
And be dead if not grateful for rescue

Oh but you know women these days
They're as fickle as they are immeasuable
And a man is a man
When his fate's in his hands
And his grasp is as hard as it is invisble

I've told you we'll go
And tomorrow will come
With tomorrows tomorrow in toe
Let it go, little girl
There's a hole in the world
And they'll tear you apart if you go
I'll tear you apart if you go
You'll tear me apart if you go
