    I was in another lifetime;
    One of toil and blood
    When blackness was a virtue
    And the road was full of mud.
    I come in from the wilderness,
    A creature void of form.
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    And if I pass this way again
    You can rest assured
    I'll always do my best for her,
    On that I give my word.
    In a world of steel-eyed death
    And men who are fighting to be warm,
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    Not a word was spoke between us.
    There was little risk involved.
    Everything up to that point
    Had been left unresolved.
    Try imagining a place where
    It's always safe and warm.
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    I was burned out from exhaustion.
    Buried in the hail.
    Poisoned in the bushes
    And blown out on the trail.
    Hunted like a crocodile
    Ravaged in the corn.
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    Suddenly I turned around
    And she was standing there
    With silver bracelets on her wrists
    And flowers in her hair.
    She walked up to me so gracefully
    And took my crown of thorns.
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    Now there's a wall between us.
    Something there's been lost.
    I took too much for granted;
    Got my signals crossed.
    Just to think that it all began
    On a non-eventfull morn.
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    Well, the deputy walks on hard nails
    And the preacher rides a mount,
    But nothing really matters much.
    It's doom alone that counts
    And the one-eyed undertaker;
    He blows a futile horn.
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    I've heard newborn babies
    Wailing like a mourning dove
    And old men with broken teeth
    Stranded without love.
    Do I understand your question, man?
    Is it hopeless and forlorn?
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    In a little hilltop village
    They gambled for my clothes.
    I bargained for salvation
    And she gave me a lethal dose.
    I offered up my innocence
    And got repaid with scorn.
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".

    Well, I'm living in a foreign country,
    But I'm bound to cross the line.
    Beauty walks a razor's edge.
    Someday I'll make it mine.
    If I could only turn back the clock
    To when God and her were born.
    "Come in" she said, "I'll give you
    Shelter from the storm".
