"Shelter" as written by and Sandra Kay/hammer St. Victor....
Said it's wrong but you know that,
The look on your face means you'll do it again
Saturday on the night train, with uptown boys who rail cocaine

Laughing out to no one's joke, looking round but it's remote
That you won't see someone "you know"

And it's a long time, and you're alone
But don't you know, you can come home
I'd give you shelter.

    General Commentokay you're the lyrics to this song are soooo wrong, here are the PROPER lyrics....

    Shelter-Bedouin Soundclash

    Said it's wrong but you know that
    The look on his face means he'll be back again.
    (See you later.)
    Saturday on the night train,
    With uptown boys who rail cocain downtown.
    Keep her waiting.

    But it's a long time and you're not home.
    Don't you feel like you're alone?
    But it's a long time and you're alone.
    Don't you know you can come home?

    You don't feel, but you look fine.
    No dial tone on the main line.
    Laughing out to no one's joke.
    Looking 'round but it's remote,
    You won't see no one you know.

    But it's a long time and you're not home.
    Don't you feel like you're alone?
    But it's a long time and you're alone.
    Don't you know you can come home?

    Running, wait, don't you look 'round.
    Running, running, running east bound, downtown.
    Got nothing for you.
    Shelter is waiting for ya!
    I'm still waiting for ya to come home.

    But it's a long time and you're not home.
    And you're not home.
    Don't you feel like you're alone?
    But it's a long time and you're alone.
    Don't you know you can come home to shelter?

    General CommentI think this song is someone talking to a friend who is depressed, and kind of out of it... Yup, not really that insightful I guess, but the overall song is really really good.

    General CommentI definately think that this song is about a friend with a drug problem, maybe living on the streets, but the addiction has taken over and the person isn't interested in getting back to normality.

    I'm going to see these guys in London in a few weeks, can hardly wait, brilliant sound.
