shelter lyrics – birdy

shelter
(originally by the xx)

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

oh [x4]

can i be, was i there
felt so crystal in the air
i still want to drown whenever you leave
please teach me gently on 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

oh [x8]
