You Have a Shelter (2008 EP)

1. You Have a Shelter

You have a shelter in my heart

And a sanctuary in my soul

It has always been here for you

To come home to when you want to

When your restlessness subsides

 

And the days have done you in

Well I won’t ask you where you been

You’ll have a meal on my table

And an armchair in my den

 

Because it has always been here for you

To come home to when you want to

When your restlessness subsides

 

And you don’t care no more what is said

With that worry that’s all up in your head

You’ll have a meal on my table

And a blanket on my bed

 

You have a shelter in my heart

And a sanctuary in my soul

It has always been here for you

To come home to when you want to

When your restlessness subsides.

 

2. Flame Out

You toss around in the emotional pool

Your heart’s on fire and there’s nothing I can do

But just wish I could put that flame out

So that the waters would still

But only you can make it happen

Only you can see what I’m seeing in the reflection

I can stay stiff in this quicksand only so long

If you don’t calm down

And if the waters would still the sand would settle

We could see ourselves in this situation for what it is

So what is it?

 

I don’t have an answer for you

I don’t have a clue

I just get still and look into the astral waters

And see exactly what to do

 

So here we are and I fear you’ll drown

As you send yourself spiraling down

The wasteland of your circumstance

It’s out of control

And I hope you know I didn’t mean any harm

But if I flail around with my defensive arms

This little raft of mindfulness could turn over us

And we both would drown

 

I don’t have an answer for you

I don’t have a clue

I just get still and look into the astral waters

And see exactly what to do

Sometimes I don’t like what I see

But it really isn’t up to me

I can’t turn a blind eye and muddy-up the waters

That bind the heart to reality

 

3. No Pueden

Los putos

No pueden

Compartir la escena

Con una mujer de verdad.

 

Devil may hear and the devil may care,

But the devil don’t know that I would meet him there

With a needle and a thread and a fair strong arm,

Fingers that twist and a wrist that’s still warm.

 

I’ll sew the foul mouth shut before I will let

It whisper to fools what I would really rather keep private,

Because I take care of my business, it’s a garden that I tend,

But it takes some devolution to be a chimpanzee, a lady, and a friend.

Especially when

 

Los putos

No puden

Compartir la escena

Con una mujer de verdad.

I said it, I did it, I played it, and I hit it,

And if your bilingual or old enough,

You may know of what I tell.
