WHEN I'M IN YOUR ARMS

Copyright 2012 Ė Robert E. Shandor

 

I bet you canít remember the day that we first met
But thatís okay, Iíll forgive you Ďcause it hasnít happened yet
Youíre just a woman who lives only in my dreams (and my)
Hopiní that Iíll meet youís not as crazy as it seems
Iíd like to take you for a night out on the town
In for a penny, well then, why not a pound

 

When Iím in your arms
I find lifeís pain goes away
Goes away

 

I get the feeling that Iíve been here before
The countless times Iíve awakened on this dirty floor
With a head thatís pounding harder than a charging steed
Maybe just one little nip is all I really need
To make you come to see me, and hold me through the night
Tell me things I want to hear, and make me feel alright

 

When Iím in your arms
I find lifeís pain goes away
Goes away

 

In those moments when Iím lucid, itís not hard for me to see
That salvation will elude me, even on the shores of Galilee ('cause)
Itís easier for me to let a bottle bring you here
Than it is to face without you this world Iíve come to fear
While itís not an answer to the problem that I face
Iíll meet you here tomorrow as I drown in my disgrace

 

When Iím in your arms
I find lifeís pain goes away
Goes away

 

When Iím in your arms
I find lifeís pain goes away
