  • When there's clouds hangin' in the sky
    And they're just not lettin' any light in
    And you feel like you'd like to give in
    Don't you give up so soon

    What you need is a friend to count on
    What you got baby you got someone
    Who will stay when the rain is fallin'
    And won't let it fall on you

    I'll see you through, I'll cover you
    With a love so deep and warm and true
    I will be there

    Honey I'll be your shelter
    I'll be the one to take you through the night
    Whenever you need shelter
    I'll make everything alright, make everything alright

    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na

    I got arms strong enough to hold you
    Get you through anything you go through
    Anything that you need you know
    It's only a touch away

    When your heart needs a heart beside it
    Should be mine that's it's keeping time with
    'Cause I got so much love inside
    It beats for you every day

    I'll be the one to give you love
    When it seems like there's just not enough
    Mine will be there

    Honey I'll be your shelter
    I'll be the one to take you through the night
    Whenever you need shelter
    I'll make everything alright, make everything alright

    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na

    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na

    I'll be your shelter
    I'll be your shelter, baby

    I'll see you through, I'll cover you
    With a love so deep and warm and true
    I will be there

    Honey I'll be your shelter
    I'll be the one to take you through the night
    Whenever you need shelter
    I'll make everything alright, make everything alright

    And I'll be your shelter
    I'll be the one to take you through the night
    Whenever you need shelter
    I'll make everything alright, make everything alright
