In Your Arms

So you know, your body is mercy, your body is mercy
Oh, tell me how can you heal so many things
Without a word you make it seem
I don’t know, but there’s a place where I go
While in your arms I slip away to be there

In your arms I’m away
And I’m not gonna leave this, I’m not gonna leave this
In your arms I’m afraid that I won’t be able to leave this
How am I gonna leave this

Like a shore, your body is mercy
When in waves I’ve been searching
Oh, you lay me down here, a cold and weary thing
The ragged end of what I have been
But I know, there is a place where I’ll go
Now in your arms I slip away to be there

In your arms I’m away
And I’m not gonna leave this, I’m not gonna leave this
In your arms I’m afraid that I won’t be able to leave this
How am I gonna leave this

I’m tired of what’s making me sick
Pissing eyes in the foam
It always comes back to me
And I hear myself groan
And you take me in again
Share your body’s relief

So you know what it’s like
It’s walking home on a clear summer night
And bedding down in a field, acres wide
Taken aback by the gold in the sky
Then kind of drifting away from the eye
And letting go of the deep-rooted sigh
The single word that has come to confide
I feel the shift and the pull of the tide, edges breaking

Why must I prepare for life
When I’m not going to leave
Why must I prepare for life
When I’m not going to leave

Dreamed a palace high
Dreamed another sky
Oh, I dreamed a little long
Is that your sweet song
