From the recording In Your Arms Again
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.
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.
