  • I sit amazed at the heat on a cloudless day
    Creeping through the roof
    Burning up the floor
    I am undone for sure
    Yesterday, though the winds blew fair
    Today, they say people beware
    Hasten to a shelter from the storm

    Again, I feel it in my bones
    Again, the seeds are being sown
    Change is in the earth and in the air
    Signs are everywhere

    Shelter from the heat
    Shelter from the cold
    Shelter from the flood
    Shelter for the soul

    I see the shadows in the streets from a crowded room
    Peekin' through the cracks, listenin' through a door
    I hear the sounds of war
    And they say, we are not to blame
    Today, let the anger take aim
    Piercing to the heart and to the soul

    In the fray, I hear a baby cry
    Today, how many people die
    Clinging to a promise from despair
    The lies are everywhere

    Shelter from deceit
    Shelter from control
    Shelter from the fear
    Shelter for the soul

    Ah, such a wonderful world
    Ah, there's beauty everywhere
    Ah, always changing
    Ah, ain't she beautiful

    Shelter from the hate
    Shelter from the greed
    Shelter from the threat
    Shelter from the thief

    Shelter from the heat
    Shelter from the cold
    Shelter from the flood
    Shelter for the soul

    Shelter from deceit
    Shelter from control
    Shelter from the fear
    Shelter for the soul

    Shelter from the heat
    Shelter from the cold
    Shelter from the flood
    Shelter for the soul Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
