Shelter

This song is by Sarah McLachlan and appears on the album Solace (1991).

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

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 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
They close the doors and are letting nobody in
And only the strong will survive...

Shelter - give them shelter from the coming storm
Give them shelter - give them shelter from the coming storm

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 seam 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...

Shelter - give them shelter from the coming storm
Give them shelter - give them shelter from the coming storm
Shelter - give them shelter from the coming storm
Give them shelter - give them shelter from the coming storm
