Mary Chapin Carpenter - The Shelter Of Storms lyrics

You always had the gift of speed, you'd disappear without a trace
It all depended on the need and on the pain you could not face
So, you would leave the home you'd found
Pack it up without delay
Cut your losses, blow that town
And tomorrow was another day
All the years and all the miles
Maybe you lost track of time
I look back now only once in awhile
My memory just wants to blur the lines
Cause you know me, I just can't change
I greet the sun and find it strange
To watch you run for the shelter of storms
For the shelter of storms

Now where are you out in the world, searching for a little grace
Searching for a precious pearl, wisdom from some future place
You let me go without a wave, I noticed that and nothing more
I guess I'm going to my grave wondering what it all was for
All the years and all the miles, it's so hard keeping track of time
Do you think of me every once in awhile
When the rain lets up and the sun can shine
Just a little peace and quiet for a change
I still greet the sun and find it strange
To watch you run for the shelter of storms
For the shelter of storms

Roll back the years, subtract the miles
And see what's left for you to find
All the battles all the trials, you can't be free till you leave behind
Your bitter heart, but you can't change
You curse the sun and pray for rain
And always run for the shelter of storms
For the shelter of storms
