"YOUR SHELTER" Country Song By Ricky Hale

Updated on June 12, 2012

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


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


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


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

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.

      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.

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

      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.
