lyrics

You don’t walk to the beat of your own drum
You lead the band
And you sure changed the tune I was singing
When you took my hand
Every love I’d ever known
Let me down
But something in my soul was hummin’,
When you came around

You saw my insecurities and kissed them softly to sleep
Somehow I was always yours, before you ever met me
How did I get so lucky, how did I get so lucky
To have you lovin’ me

Always said that you had two left feet
Took me dancin’ anyway
Somehow you made me laugh
On my worst days
You knew everything about me
All my secrets, and my dreams
Felt like I could do anything
With you next to me

You saw my insecurities and kissed them softly to sleep
Somehow I was always yours, before you ever met me
How did I get so lucky, how did I get so lucky
To have you lovin’ me

We were gonna sit on our front porch at 83
Watch our kids grow up, move out, and get married
But after 15 years of love, life changed our plans
And when my body broke, you pulled me close, and took my hand

You saw my insecurities and kissed them softly to sleep
Somehow I was always yours, before you ever met me
How did I get so lucky, how did I get so lucky
To have you lovin’ me

You saw my insecurities and kissed them softly to sleep
Held me as I slipped away, but part of you left with me
I need you to remember who you used to be
For all the pain you carry our love, it was twice as deep
You might think we’re unlucky
Not everyone gets this lucky

about

Shelter From the Storm Calgary, Alberta

In 2015, a group of staff, clients and volunteers at Canada's largest homeless serving agency - the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre - joined forces to write songs, share experiences and transform the way their stories are told.

The project has since resulted in concert performances, an ongoing TELUS web-series, and 2 full length studio albums.

This is the music of Shelter From the Storm.
