Shelter Me

I don’t mind being left behind, friend of mine
But at least I have no one to judge me
I don’t mind being by your side – maybe I’m not your kind
Apparently, I don’t cross your mind – do I still belong?

(pre-ch) Wondering when you’re gonna let me know
If I am stronger than I realize…boy, how time flies…
Wondering why you decided to let me go
Stay a little longer, sweet sunrise…you’re the one I prize

(ch) Shame on me…shame on me…
For not loving you with my whole heart
Shelter me…shelter me…
Sun won’t shine down until I break apart

I swallow my pride suddenly, my attentive neighbor 
Thinking of ways to forget and forgive the past
I wallow in my pain of regret and shame, trying to find a cure
Honestly, I still don’t know right from wrong – was I a curse all along?

(pre-ch) Wondering when you’re gonna let me know
If I am stronger than I realize…boy, how time flies…
Wondering why you decided to let me go
Stay a little longer, sweet sunrise…you’re the one I prize

(ch) Shame on me…shame on me…
For not loving you with my whole heart
Shelter me…shelter me…
Sun won’t shine down until I break apart

I don’t think you consider me, dear love of mine
Maybe I am useless and mean nothing to you
I don’t think being me is all that easy, but I’ll give it my best shot
Nearly upset and confused by your absence…
But I am still biting the bullet
Biting the bullet
Biting the bullet

(pre-ch) Wondering when you’re gonna let me know
If I am stronger than I realize…boy, how time flies…
Wondering why you decided to let me go
Stay a little longer, sweet sunrise…you’re the one I prize

(ch) Shame on me…shame on me…
For not loving you with my whole heart
Shelter me…shelter me…
Sun won’t shine down until I break apart

Nearly upset and confused by your absence…
Instead, I’ll be biting the bullet
Biting the bullet
Biting the bullet

Wondering when you’re gonna let me know
If I am stronger than I realize…boy, how time flies…
Wondering why you decided to let me go
Stay a little longer, sweet sunrise…you’re the one I prize

(whispering) Please tell me that I belong here with you…
Shelter me by your glistening hope…shining anew…
Give me the strength to move on from now on and forever
Even if it’s near the end of the hardship of missing you
I won’t assume the worst and I will get a grip…get a grip…
