Dermot Kennedy – Shelter lyrics
So step inside
'Cause that night is cold, it don't deserve such a smile
And it's not enough
For it to show up every once in a while
In the moonlight, I should
Kiss you at Samhain, throw it all down
Wouldn't that be cool?
To kill the guard, open the gates, for feelings unbound

But I've been keeping hope
And I've got a fairy tale in my heart, I can cope
But I've been keeping hope
I bet they had you in mind when naming the rose

Only know 'bout how I won't be here later
And don't forget, 'bout how she had you feeling major
And he tried to write down how he felt 'bout the girl
Kept running out of paper, he'll wait for her

He was feeling fucking awesome
Be a good man like you taught him
Don't get caught up in caution when love exists

So step inside
'Cause that night is cold, it don't deserve such a smile
We'll be alright
I could never lie about caring a lot

    Dermot sees this girl that isn’t living up to her full potential. Maybe she is with someone who doesn’t love her like Dermot would. She deserves someone like Dermot who would always make her smile and stay by her side no matter what. He wants her to step inside and start a relationship with him. Dermot has crazy feelings towards this girl and fantasizes about being with her one day but he knows it most likely will not happen
