"In My Arms" as written by Gary Lightbody, Jonathan Graham Quinn, Nathan Connolly, Tom Simpson and Paul Wilson....
Your baby blues
So full of wonder
Your curly cues
Your contagious smile
And as I watch
You start to grow up
All I can do is hold you tight

Knowing clouds will raise up
Storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

Story books full of fairy tales
Kings and queens and the bluest skies
My heart is torn just in knowing
You'll someday see the truth from lies

Knowing clouds will raise up
Storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

Castles they might crumble
Dreams may not come true
But you are never all alone
Because I will always
Always love you

Clouds will raise up
Storms will race in
But you will be safe in my arms
Rains will pour down
Waves will crash all around
But you will be safe in my arms

    General CommentThis song is simple. Its about protecting someone you love.

    Songs have hidden meanings. This song can be taken a few ways, but reminds me of a mothers love for a child. This song reminds me of bringing a child into the world we live in today. If only we could see what children see. Cherish every moment with your kids, because they grow fast. They make us kids again. Be a kid again, dont be afraid to. I personally am a single mom. My daughter is a CHD Warrior with HLHS, and this is my song to her. I sing this to her.

    This song could be about
    -a mothers love to a child
    - religion
    -protecting someone you love
    - sung at a funeral in memory of

    What ever the meaning be, it touches you, and it simply means that who you sing it to, no matter what happens, you will always love them, and they are safe in your arms... You love them unconditionally...no matter what

I'm not into "christian" music at all I just happened to hear this on the radio one day in fell in love with it.

    General CommentI think this songhas to do with a mother or fahter's love for thier child, wanting to protect them, knowing thta the world will be hard, but they will always love them. It makes me cry though, because it came at a point in my life when I felt abandoned by my parents, left alone to fend for myself in a way. But I took comfort that even though my paernts weren't there for me, my Heavenly Father God held me "safe in His arms."

    General Commenti think that the message in this song parallels the love from a parent to a child to God and God's "children"... Frankly, I think it's beautiful and it makes me feel really good to listen to this song. No matter how hard things become, you always have someone, even if it's not a physical person there, helping you through whatever it is. You're always loved unconditionally. It's beautiful.

    General CommentOne of the most powerful songs I've ever heard. I assumed I'd be the only one thinking this was about a mother and her child. It's so sad because it seems like the child is a small, young, innocent child who is soon to be introduced into the corruption of this world. If we could only see the world again as children...

    General CommentI listen to Way-Fm a lot, and the artist of this song has told her meaning of this song on Way-Fm. She says that her son will always be safe in her arms, and that he's one of the miracles to her. She also says that this means being safe in God's arms when there is no one else to go.

    General CommentWow, I never even thought of the idea that it was parents! I guess I always thought it was a girlfriend singing to her boyfriend about trying to protect him. Storybooks part implies that the speaker is aware that the world is not perfect but wishes it could be like in fairy tales she has heard.

    General Commentsame here...I'm not religious at all and I love this song. I love Tool, APC, N.I.N, Slipknot, S.O.A.D, Eminem, and so on but i'm always a sap for a good love song. This is one of those.
