Lyrics

Lying beside you

Here in the dark

Feeling your heartbeat with mine

Softly you whisper

You're so sincere

How could our love be so blind

We sailed on together

We drifted apart

And here you are

By my side


So now I come to you

With open arms

Nothing to hide

Believe what I say

So here I am

With open arms

Hoping you'll see

What your love means to me

Open arms


Living without you

Living alone

This empty house seems so cold

Wanting to hold you

Wanting you near

How much I wanted you home


But now that you've come back

Turned night into day

I need you to stay


So now I come to you

With open arms

Nothing to hide

Believe what I say

So here I am

With open arms

Hoping you'll see

What your love means to me

Open arms
