Iago It was a long time ago when I first heard this song: there was a girl, of course, a girl who (I thought) wanted to play me for a fool, so I once told her "Did you ever gave me shelter from the storm, or were you the storm, and outside without you, my shelter". Of course time passed and she was just passing by. After many other failures and dispappointments, I've come to know that love is about someone being your storm and your shelter. Great song.

Diana Few adults could fail to relate to this message--something we all feel at one time or another. The song just seems both larger-than-life and also so simple and basic. I never get tired of hearing it. Sep 15, 2009
