lyrics

(Christian Hudson)
Wake up
Stop telling myself a lie
Telling myself I'm alright
Sleeping away my life

Wake up
Stop telling myself a lie
Telling myself I'm alright
Sleeping away my life

(Jordan Williams)
They say time is money
Money is a blessing
But why
When its the cause of most our stressing
Isolate myself
As if this rooms is correction
lately I've been tryn'a make a little room
For corrections
And these scars on my arms say I learned a few lessons

But I'll be damned
If get if I get crushed again
In these waves of depression
Were all good people
But that's something they rarely mention
Something we don't hear
Un-acceptance, un-forgiven

A sub conscious root of all fears
Like how you beat a beast
That's stalked you for years
Walk away from drama
Nah I won't feed it
If we can't wake up
Than how we defeat it
No more running
Like I been defeated
been through hell once I ain't gotta repeat it

(Christian Hudson)
Wake up
Stop telling myself a lie
Telling myself I'm alright
Sleeping away my life

Wake up
Stop telling myself a lie
Telling myself I'm alright
Sleeping away my life

(Jordan Williams)
When leaving what you knew
Becomes nerve racking
Like pink socks
In new schools
I gotta wake up and when
Its when I’m sleeping I lose
Never bought into the hype long enough
We all do

My eye used to be blind
Now it’s open like a lotus uh
I'm slowly tryn'a watch this flower bloom
this is a message to myself
Maybe you feel it to?

(Christian Hudson)
I don't wanna get out of bed
Gotta get out of my head

I don't wanna get out of bed
my body is heavy as lead

I don't wanna get out of bed
you’re alive and playing
Dead

Wake up
Stop telling myself a lie
Telling myself I'm alright
Sleeping away my life

Wake up
Stop telling myself a lie
Telling myself I'm alright
Sleeping away my life

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.
