"Right Here In My Arms" as written by Ville Hermanni Valo and Jussi Mikko Salminen....
She's smiling like heaven is down on earth
Sun is shining so bright it hurts
All her wishes have finally com true
Her heart is weeping.
Happiness is killing her.

She'll be right here in my arms
So in Love
She'll be right here in these arms
She can't let go
She can't let go

So hard she's trying
But her heart won't turn to stone, oh no
She keeps on crying
But I won't leave her alone
She'll never be alone

She'll be right here in my arms
So in Love
She'll be right here in these arms
She can't let go
She can't let go
She can't let go
She can't let go
She can't let go
She can't let go
She can't let go

    General CommentI personally think this song can be interpreted in several ways. One, it could be about a girl who is in some sort of abusive or controlling relationship, where she loves the one she is with even though he is hurting her and she knows she should get out("so hard she's trying, but her heart won't turn to stone")...
    My favorite meaning is that it's about a guy who is really in love with a girl who doesn't necessarily feel the same way about him. It's about how he wants her so badly he'll do whatever it takes to make her his; he plans on seducing her and forcing her to love him too, and she'll fall so hard for him she'll never be able to let go.
    I don't know, this is just about the sexiest song I've ever heard in my life. It's absolutely stunning. I could listen to it constantly.

    General CommentHIM did stand for His Infernal Majesty, but Valo says that they abandoned that because combined with thew Scandinavian origin ppl thought the band were devil worshippers, and this attracted the wrong crowd. So they just use the title HIM with no deeper meaning now

    General Commenti just watched the music video for this song and the lyrics started to make a lot more sense to me. It shows the band playing in a glass box made of two way mirrors so that no one can see out, but anyone on the outside can look in. There is a girl outside looking in at the lead singer, and he is at the glass looking blindly out, he moves around the box and she follows him outside trying to get his attention, but that is impossible. I think this is talking about the perfect girl that a man wants to be in his arms (representing ownership and possession) and she is right in front of him, but he ignores her and passes her off as not the right one. She wants him, and he wants what she is, he just doesn't realize that she is the embodiment of what he wants. She eventually gives up at the end of the song and turns off the lights and leaves. The guy ends up losing his perfect girl that he dreams of holding in his arms all because he fails to see her in his life before she gives up trying to get his attention. I see this all as poetic, sad, and realistically lifelike.

    General CommentThats how I heard of this band, through CKY. Bam is a huge fan and he does a good job of getting word of HIM around the states. The video for this song is pretty killer too.
