​Hold You In My Arms

This song is by The Oak Ridge Boys and appears on the album The Boys Are Back (2009).

When you came to me with your bad dreams and your fears
It was easy to see you'd been crying.
Seems like everywhere you turn, catastrophe it reigns
But who really profits from the dying.

I could hold you in my arms, ooh ooh ooh, I could hold you forever,
I could hold you in my arms, ooh ooh ooh, I could hold you forever.

When you kissed my lips with my mouth so full of questions
My worried mind that you quiet
Place your hands on my face, close my eyes and say
That love is a poor man's food, don't prophesise.

I could hold you in my arms, ooh ooh ooh, I could hold you forever,
I could hold you in my arms, ooh ooh ooh, I could hold you forever.

So now we see how it is, this fist begets the spear
Weapons of war, symptoms of madness.
Don't let your eyes refuse to see, don't let your ears refuse to hear
Or you ain't never going to shake this sense of sadness.

I could hold you in my arms, ooh ooh ooh I could hold you forever,
I could hold you in my arms, ooh ooh ooh, I could hold on forever.
