"YOUR SHELTER" Country Song By Ricky Hale

As I lie here awake


The choices I've made


Running through my head


I can't escape


Voices in my head


Tell me to run


I can't get to you


What have I done


CHORUS

I fall to my knees


Lord help me please


Don't let her walk out


She is what I need


I never meant to hurt you


Or cause you this pain


Let me be your shelter


In the pouring rain





I know I said some things


I didn't mean to say


What I would give


To rewind to yesterday


Without you baby


Life is not the same


Let me make it up to you


Show you I can change




CHORUS

I fall to me knees


Lord help me please


Don't let her walk out


She is what I need


I never meant to hurt you


Or cause you this pain


Let me be your shelter


In the pouring rain





Baby you are my air


The one that has my heart


If you can find it inside


To give a brand new start





CHORUS ALT

Baby look at this face


Look into these eyes


Don't ever hesitate


To what you feel inside


My heart skips a beat


Every time I hear your name


Let me be your shelter


Cause baby I've changed


I will be your shelter


In the pouring rain

ABOUT THIS SONG...

© "Your Shelter" Ricky "Richard" Hale All rights reserved.


This song was written today and this is a first draft. This song reflects on a man that has hurt his love. He now sees what she meant to him. It may be too late though. We all say and do things that we shouldn't. In many cases, we hurt those who we love. Everybody has good days and bad days. If there is a lesson to learn here, please think before you speak. Words hurt the soul. Always treat everyone like you want to be treated. Thanks for taking the time to view my song. God Bless.

Voted up awesome and beautiful. This is wonderful Ricky. Loved every single word especially the chorus and "let me be your shelter in the pouring rain". Super. Too bad Johnny Cash isn't around to sing it. Passing this on.

It plays very smoothly to a few different melodies I tried with guitar accompaniment— a good creative work.

Voted up—DF

Voting up awesome and beautiful. This is fantastic Ricky, full of emotion, longing, regret and pain. We often take people for granted and don't realise what we have until we have lost it.
