"Take Shelter" as written by Resul Emre Turkmen, Michael Thomas Goldsworthy and Oliver Alexander Thornton....
Sing it out loud so she hears
I spent a lifetime trying to get here
Oh no, now that she knows
Sing it lower to keep her...
Close by my side and when I go to tell her, but I keep it in
Oh no, now when she cries
Hold your hand out to wipe her eyes
Why do you throw it away?
Why do you ask me to wait?
I can’t understand what this means
Why won’t you share this with me?
Hold her back don’t let her leave
Keep her quiet, don’t cause a scene
Oh no, now she says no
Do your best not to let her go
Lock the doors and close the blinds
Take your time turning off the lights
Oh no, now make her sweat
It’s time for something she might regret
I’ll be spending my nights recovering from deep sighs
And you’re not even there
I’ll be holding my sides, you’ll be batting your eyes
And you don’t even care
