shelter lyrics – the xx

“shelter”

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 mirror 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
