So much in life just brings trouble
So much in life is not what it seems
What we have is true and honest
It's real life born out of dreams


Next to me is the one who loves me
Next to me is the one who cares
Next to me is the one who holds me when I'm weak
Makes promises he keeps
Honey I will stay right next to you

Some things in life can't be measured
Some thing you just can't get enough
What I have with you is treasured
And it's something we can trust


Instrumental break

Shelter, you are my shelter
You keep me safe and warm
Laughter, so much laughter
Means we'll make it through any storm
