Story

In Your Arms Again is based on personal observations after the loss of a spouse.
My dad died just a few days after my 21st birthday.  I dropped out of college and tried to help my mother…but as much as I tried, there would always be an empty spot in her heart that couldn’t be filled.
I’ve watched friends experience the same loss.
This song is for all of those who have lost their true loves.  Those who strive to smile in spite of heartache.



Lyrics


In the morning, I can feel your body laying close to mine
Your warm breath falling softly on my skin
As the sunlight creeps slowly thru the window pane
I'm happy in your arms again...


Sarah called this morning just to say hello
But I could hear the worry in her tone
She says the boys are happy, soon they'll be starting school
And before we know it, they'll be grown
 
Jacob got a new job, longer hours... better pay
He's always been a worker like his dad  
We learn best from example, so people always say 
And you can't find any better than he had 

Each night I pull your shirt from our dresser drawer 
I close my eyes as I slip it on 
I hold your pillow tight, like a hundred times before 
It still smells like your cologne 

I’m trying to take, each day as it comes 
But the house still seems to echo with your voice
I know you didn't want to leave me here all alone 
You just didn't have a choice 

In the morning, I can feel your body laying close to mine 
Your warm breath falling softly on my skin 
As the sunlight creeps slowly thru the window pane 
I'm happy in your arms again...  
I'm happy in your arms....again.
