Running head on
To things that knock me down
Over again
He picked me off the ground
And I wasn't strong enough to fight
Anymore, but In Your Arms Tonight

Hold me close and tight
In your arms tonight
In your arms tonight
In your arms tonight
Oh my love

God only knows
Why I don't just retreat
'Stead of riding the rails
Back to the place of my worst defeat
'Cause I'm not fooling anyone, not quite
Convincing You
But when your arms are in mine

Try not to be strong
Cry 'til it's all gone
If you hold me tight
In your arms tonight
Oh my love

For years you've seen
The one who'd be there for you
The way I need you, here tonight
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

In your arms tonight
In your arms tonight
In your arms tonight, in my arms, oh yeah

    General CommentI love this song, I love this whole album. I've seen the movie many many times but unfortunately haven't seen the play yet.

    God only knows
    Why I don't just retreat
    'Stead of riding the rails
    Back to the place of my worst defeat...

    Those have got to be some of the best lines in a song I've ever heard, and I can totally relate to them.
