VERSE
In the red lit room, smoking some dope
My girl and I are visiting, she’s giving me hope
The city is silent, though she weeps and she moans
The sound of the rain ain’t all that’s keeping us home
(chorus)

CHORUS
So much I want to do, so much I want to say
Will you let me take your cares away

VERSE
There’s a specter on the street, a demon in your head
What’s known and what is not drives the sleep from the bed
But I’ve got you, we’ve got time
Is this sin or redemption? I can’t make up my mind.
(chorus)

VERSE
Is it shelter that you seek, shelter that you lack
The shelter of your lover’s arms, the shelter of your past
The uncertainty of life meets the certainty of death
Until these moments that we share are all that we have left
(chorus)
