shelter song – okkervil river lyrics


you know you’d never believe it, good friend
cold friend, scared animal
and i could barely believe it myself

you’ve got a home

starving to death
out by the ocean wall
shouts in the mist
scuffling footsteps

i know you think you’re all by yourself
all by yourself
you’re not alone

i thought that n-body loved me at 10
sad kid, scared animal
a nasty word and i’m back there again
can’t let it go

holding my breath
up in the church house hall
i had my strength
i had my skin and bones

i thought that i was all by myself
all by myself
but i was wrong
never alone
and now
i’m home
i’m home
i’m home
