Sammy Davis Jr. – The Shelter Of Your Arms lyrics

In this cold world
No matter where I go
The crowds are all the same

To them, I'm just
A pebble in the sand
A face without a name

Nobody gives a hang for
What I say or do but you
And in the shelter of your arms
I find peace and comfort and care
For I am wanted there (wanted there)

In this cold world
I struggle to survive
And sometimes I would fall

You think someone
Would lend a helping hand
They'd sooner see me crawl

But just when life itself
Seems more than I can bear
You're there
And in the shelter of your arms
I find strength and safety
And then I rise and start again (start again)

Just give me one good
Reason to go on living
To keep on trying for what
I ask you for what

If not for you and all your
Love to see me through

When times looked bad
The shelter of your arms
Would keep away each fear

And this cold world
Can never get me down
As long as you are near

That's why I pray to God
You'll never say goodbye

And I will know the shelter
Of your arms and your love
Through all of my life
Until the day I die (day I die)
