Shelter

Shelter

Sarah McLachlan

They're crowded into the smallest spaces
While outside all of nature cries
It's known to be cruel and unfair
But there is no place to hide

[Chorus]
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never
Really want to share
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never
Knew was there
Shelter give them shelter from the coming storm
Shelter give them shelter from the coming storm

I can't sleep I'm haunted by their faces
The sadness in their eyes
It hurts so much to see them helpless
It makes me want to cry
But still there is so much left unanswered
For so many innocent lives
The close the doors and are letting nobody in
And only the strong will survive

[Chorus]

I've seen the anger and I've seen all the dreams
And I've watched an existence torn apart at the seams
And though I may seem helpless
I will do all that I can do
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never really
Want to share
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never knew
Was there

[Chorus]
