"Gimme Shelter"

You are my Oasis
Truth in the Valley of the Lies
You are Comfort
While the Madness storms around me
You are Understanding
Exactly on cue and on mark
You are Tenderness
In contrast to the calloused fingers of Deception
Groping at my heart
You are Refreshment
As the sweat of Anxiety drips from my pores
In the arid heat of Heartache's breath in my face
You are truly my Oasis
When I discover that you are only a Mirage
What will I do then?
Where will I find refuge?
