lyrics

Open Arms

Oh almighty
God, what have I done
Is there a way to the way this affair has begun?
Oh sweet remembrance how can I overcome?
If I open my arms would you lay down your guns?

Would you lie down next to me?
Could you just cry out loud on my chest?
Or would it be the best to say goodbye?

I was a soldier on your frontline
Now I’m in the hospital
How I’d like to reload
And shoot you off your pedestal
How come you violently love me?
Baby what you’re aiming at?
Is it the hole in my heart
or the part that’s shiny red?
Would you lie down next to me?
Could you just cry out loud on my chest?
Or would it be the best to say goodbye?

When I caress other bodies
Memories grow too strong
My heart jumps right back
To where it belongs
I doubt if I can be any longer
Any longer in doubt
I’ll let you into my heart
To never let you out
Oh grand finale
Don’t wait another day
If I’m a man I’d grab your hand
And take all your pain away
If I’m a man oh almighty
I’d jump right through the fire
Take out the sword and fight
For every inch of our desire

Would you lie down next to me?
Could you just cry out loud on my chest?
Or would it be the best to say goodbye?

And if you cry I will try not to frown not to protest
I will do my best to do it right
