Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face
With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Well I don't know if I'm ready
To be the man I have to be
I'll take a breath, take her by my side
We stand in awe, we've created life
With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
If I had just one wish
Only one demand
I hope he's not like me
I hope he understands
That he can take this life
And hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world
With arms wide open

    General CommentI love this song, Creed did an excellent job by even writing this, and now when I hear it being played by one of my favorite bands it just increases the amount that I love this song.

    General Commentbefore i was born, my mom left my dad because he had some problems. ever since i was a little kid, i knew this song was about birth, but it always made me think what it would be like to meet my missing half, and to fill a father shaped hole. I think creed was one of the most amazing groups evr...
