Shelter From The Storm
By Frank Peter Hermsen

How often did I ask my lifeline why
I had to suffer just to find
A shelter where itīs safe and warm
In the neverending torturing storm

I always saw the house, couldnīt find the door
And I never knew what I was here for
Years I waited for a sign in the rain
To show me just a place to forget my pain

Shelter from the storm
The world lies in coldness but you are the warmth
When truth is reality letīs be the lie
When you are the death Iīll gladly die

Maybe you and me weīre trapped in the dark
Maybe you and me weīre chained to the ground
But this is what I have been waiting for
What I always searched but never found

After all it will be the songs that you sing
Your voice in the night is my way to survive
And all those voices from the darker side
Iīll beat them to protect your pride

Shelter from the storm
The world lies in coldness and you are the warmth
When truth is reality letīs be the lie
When you are the death Iīll gladly die
