LYRICS – SHELTER
Can slow the blow
The rushes through my brain
Can you calm the ocean waves
Just like two ships a sailing
Passing in the night
Seconds and inches from each other’s sight
I run from shelter deep in your arms
Please give me shelter don’t do me no harm
My terminal affection awaits to escape
Should I know when to run or just when it’s safe
Your chemical reaction comes to rescue me
Before I sink like a stone tossed in the sea
Tryin’ to do what’s right for all the wrong reasons
We consistently change like nature’s own seasons
Is my intuition, is it up to blame
Are we all that different or just all the same
Pete Westman was a very intense singer, guitarist and songwriter. I worked with him at the Road Records recording studio in Southern California off and on for many years. We had always talked about taking a vacation together to Asia and going to Thailand. Now I’ve lived in Asia for several years and go to Thailand several times a year. I always think of Pete when I go.
Sadly Pete (PD) passed away on March 8, 2004. I have a fan page for him over on my blog at:
If you like his music please leave a comment here or over there, or both. I know his friends and family would appreciate that.
One of my first recording sessions with Pete, I was doing some editing he requested and concentrating on the mixing board. He was sitting behind me. As I’m working I smell something burning and I start to panic, looking around the studio for smoke. I turn around and while I was editing he had set up this little shrine with a table cloth complete with incense burners. He was burning incense in the studio! I freaked. He was like, “Hey man, I’m just trying to get in my space and get the vibe going.” Years later we would always laugh about that.
We miss you PD!
