"In The Lord's Arms" as written by and Ben Harper....
Like the wings stolen from an angel
Like petals gone from a rose
Like a dove caught in a storm

Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms

The wind it blew straight through us
And whispered to me in tongues
I was told, I was warned

Tonight he would be in the Lord's Arms
Tonight he is in the Lord's Arms

So I drink this wine to him
With each glass, a memory
He left with his crown of thorns

Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms
Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms
Tonight he's in the Lord's Arms

    General CommentI think the line is:
    "I was told, I was WARNED" not "I was wrong"...
    but this is one of my favorite songs ever... it almost makes me cry every time i hear it.
    I can't decide if this is about someone close to him dying or Jesus... it could go either way, but maybe that's what he meant by it - maybe it's supposed to be ambiguous.
