"Get Back to the Shelter" as written by and Richard Clapton....
I think I'll go back home again
Everyone here has said all they have to say
Before the snow sets in
Gonna find me a room with a view
Lock myself away

And I'll sit there in my room for the whole damn wintertime
I've got too many questions without answers
Lord, I've gotta clear my mind
And that lonesome bell keeps ringing
And this voice in my head keeps singing

Get back to the shelter
You've got to slow down for a while
You've been living so helter skelter
Yet somehow losing time

Standing at the airline gate again
With my heart in my hands and I'm watching the endless sky
Look at all the jumbos in the rain
Gonna sleep 'tilSchipol and forget all this fear of flying
I don't wanna go babe but I've been going nowhere
And it's getting very close to the point where I really just don't care
Now there's no sense in you waiting
'Cause I'm through with hesitating

Get back to the shelter
You've got to slow down for a while
You've been living so helter skelter
Yet somehow losing time
