[My ex-wife Linda came up with the words "She was
Looking for shelter, I was looking for love", from
Which I wrote everything else]

Well the night she came
It was pouring with rain
And she was soaked to the skin
I hadn't seen her in two long years
I said 'Why don't you come on in?'
And while her clothes were drying
She kept on crying
She told me she'd come back for good
She asked me to give her one more chance
And like a fool I said I would

You know I reached out to her with an helping hand
But all I got was an empty glove
She was just looking for shelter
But I was looking for love
And I really thought she might change her ways
But a vulture can't change into a dove
She was just looking for shelter
But I was looking for love... oh... oh... oh

Well after a while
She managed to smile
But her eyes were still a little red
She took me by the hand and led me upstairs
She said 'Why don't we go to bed?'
She told me she'd been a fool
To treat me so cruel
And she was sorry for what she'd done
When I went to sleep she was in my arms
But when I woke up in the morning she'd gone

You know I reached out to her with a helping hand
And all I got was an empty glove
She was just looking for shelter
But I was looking for love
And I really thought she might change her ways
But a vulture can't change into a dove
She was just looking for shelter
But I was looking for love... umm

She was just looking for shelter,
Just looking for shelter
She was just looking for shelter
But I was looking for love

Just looking for shelter
Just looking for shelter
She was just looking for shelter
But I was looking for love

Just looking for shelter
Just looking for shelter
Just looking for shelter
I was looking for love

Just looking for shelter
(Yes she was)
Just looking for shelter
(Oh you know she was)
Just looking for shelter
And I was looking for love

Just looking for shelter
(Ooh)
Just looking for shelter
(Ooh)
Just looking for shelter
I was looking for love

Just looking for shelter...
