"Shelter (The xx cover)" as written by Romy Anna Madley Croft, Oliver David Sim, James Thomas Smith and Baria Qureshi....
I find shelter in this way
Under cover, hide away
Can you hear when I say
I have never felt this way

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Could I be, was I there
It felt so crystal in the air
I still want to drown whenever you leave
Please teach me gently how to breathe

And I'll cross oceans like never before
So you can feel the way I feel it too

And I'll send images back at you
So you can see the way I feel it too

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

    My InterpretationTo me, it means :

    I find shelter with you, I feel protected. Please hear me when I say I never felt this way before.

    Maybe I said something wrong, but if you listen to me, I'll explain what I meant and how sorry I am for it.

    When we were together, it was like a dream, because it was so perfect. But whenever you leave me, I just want to die. Please come back to me, because you are my remedy.

    I'll go across the world if I have to just to be with you again. And this time I'll show you how much I love you.
