Samantha Fox – Gimme Shelter lyrics

(mick jagger/keith richards/p. Cobbold/hawkind)

{hawkind:}
Ooh, a storm is threatening my very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

See the fire is sweeping
Our very streets today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost it's way

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

{samantha:}
Rape and murder, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Rape, rape, and murder, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Rape, rape, and murder, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Rape, rape, and murder, it's just a shot away

{both:}
Mmm, the flood's is threatening
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Samantha: shot away)

Hawkind: I tell you love, sister
Samantha: love, sister
Hawkind: it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Love, love, sister
Samantha: love, sister
Hawkind: it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Love, love, brother
Samantha: love, brother
Hawkind: it's just a kiss away
Samantha: kiss away
Hawkind: it's just a kiss away
Love, sister
Samantha: love, sister
Hawkind: it's just a kiss away
Both: kiss away, kiss away
Hawkind: it's just a kiss away (kiss away)
Both: kiss away
Samantha: kiss away, kiss away, kiss away - yeah
(fade)
