This girl I know needs some shelter
She don't believe anyone can help her
She's doing so much harm, doing so much damage
But you don't want to get involved
You tell her she can manage
And you can't change the way she feels
But you could put your arms around her
I know you want to live yourself
But could you forgive yourself
If you left her just the way
You found her
I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection
I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection
You're a boy and I'm a girl
But you know you can lean on me
And I don't have no fear
I'll take on any man here
Who says that's not the way it should be
I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
ProtectionI stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection
She's a girl and you're a boy
Sometimes you look so small, look so small
You've got a baby of your own
When your baby's grown, she'll be the one
To catch you when you fall
I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection
I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection
You're a girl and I'm a boy
Sometimes you look so small, need some shelter
Just runnin' round and round, helter skelter
And I've leaned on you for years
Now you can lean on me
And that's more than love, that's the way
It should be
Now I can't change the way you think
But I can put my arms around you
That's just part of the deal
That's the way I feel
I put my arms around you
I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection
I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection
You're a boy and I'm a girl

<---blamin' the Brit

*nodding*

Could thank the fella....LOL...but gosh, then he'd get all cheesey and smug about it.
Can't have THAT! ;-)

Mel said...

Yup.

Bookmarked it cuz I rather like it....even though there's a sadness to it.

I know that I've been
Mad in love before
And how it could be with you
Really hurt me baby,
Really cut me baby
How can you have
A day without a night?
You're the book that I have opened
And now I've got to know much more

The curiousness
Of your potential kiss
Has got my mind and body aching
Really hurt me baby,
Really cut me baby
How can you have
A day without a night?
You're the book that I have opened
And now I've got to know much more

Like a soul without a mind
In a body without a heart
I'm missing every part

I, still, ♥ the views said...

thanks gordie! (but what does the voice in the background remind me of? or is it just that I already knew this song?)

mel what else does he have on his iPod? I think I ought to know!

(what kind of cheese? Cheddar or Philadelphia?)

;-)


I like the way the shape of the lyrics goes in an out. . .

small things are pleasing me at the moment

:-)

Mel said...

More like Colby Jack cheese....he's a bit swirly when he's being all smug.

Dunno what he has on that iPod thingy--unless he starts singin' along. LOL
But I could thieve it and have a look......if I knew how to operate the thingy......which I don't...LOL

*shrugs*
He's a blend of all sorts of .....umm..... 'interesting' things. ;-)

I, still, ♥ the views said...

*hums*

"gotta pickapocket or two"

(SP has just found out her end of term play is Oliver)

what kind of cheese is that then? I like a really sharp hard cheese myself, but am also partial to a smooth and soft, creamy one sometimes

and I'm a sucker for pickles of any kind with cheese, and nice crackers, and maybe a slice of apple

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I'm hungry

I, still, ♥ the views said...

(and I bet he is very interesting)(kinda goes without saying, huh)

Mel said...

Oh geeze---at a quick glance (without stealing it....LOL) Sigur Ros (Agaetis Byrjun album), Enigma, Coldplay (go figure), Robert Miles, Massive Attack (surprise!) and (bless his heart) Kate Rusby.

Now, ask if I knew their music before the British invasion....LOL
