Gimme Shelter
Ooh, a storm is threatenin'
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Ooh 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 (yeah)

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin'
Our very streets today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull, lost its way

War, children, yes
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 (yeah)

(Rape, murder)
(It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away)
(Rape, murder, yeah)
(It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away)
(Rape, murder)
(It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away, yeah yeah)

Mmm, the floods is threatenin'
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
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

I tell you love, sister
It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away, kiss away, kiss away, yeah
