In These Arms

Album: Strict Joy (2009)

  • Use the truth
    As a weapon
    To beat up all your friends
    Every chink in the armor
    An excuse to cause offense
    And the boys from the hallway
    Calling out your name
    And true love will,
    Find them in the end

    You are restless
    I was somewhere less secure
    So I went running to the road
    And so now that the longest of places I was
    I quit my rambling and come home

    Cause maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
    Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms

    And your saints
    And your mantra
    And your things, to keep you calm
    If you stay
    With that asshole
    Is gonna do you harm
    As the voice singing loudly on the radio
    Just for you
    And good fortune
    Will find him in the end

    Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
    Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
    Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms
    Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms Writer/s: GLEN HANSARD, GLEN JAMES HANSARD
