I think I've walked too close to love
And now I'm falling in
There's so many things this weary soul can't take
Maybe you just caught me by surprise
The first time that I looked into your eyes

There's a life inside of me
That I can feel again
It's the only thing that takes me
Where I've never been
I don't care if I lost everything that I have known
It don't matter where I lay my head tonight
Your arms feel like home
Feel like home

This life aint the fairy tale we both thought it would be
But I can see your smiling face as it's staring back at me
I know we both see these changes now
I know we both understand somehow

There's a life inside of me
That I can feel again
It's the only thing that takes me
Where I've never been
I don't care if I lost everything that I have known
It don't matter where I lay my head tonight
Your arms feel like home
They feel like home
(hold on, you're home to me)

There's a life inside of me
That I can feel again
It's the only thing that takes me
Where I've never been
I don't care if I lost everything that I have known
It don't matter where I lay my head tonight
Your arms feel like home
They feel like home

    I feel this song is true. He is saying that he'd given up everything to be with her. They are a couple struggling financially, and they have moved so many times. Love this song because i understand it when i'm in her arms.

    To me this is a strong song, i have truly lived this song. To me this song means so much. its my struggle of falling in love many times but it was always a disaster, i was ripped apart. i have become acostomed to knowing that i DONT have a home. to me a home is where true love is, were there is a family, not just a house where u live. This was how i lived until i met the best man in the world, and i know that sounds cliche but its true. him and i believe that the best things happen unexpectedly, and thats how we happened, when we wernt even searching for someone and now we have found each other, and this song competly describes it. He is going into the United States Coast Guard, as the song states, this life isnt a fairytale and that is true. it takes a lot of courage to stand in the silent ranks fo the military. we have both made sacrafices. i have let go of a life that only tortuered me and found strength comfort and true love in the arms of one man, and that is the only place i can truly say i feel i am at home. i am truly happy again now that i have found him and nothing else matters because home is in his arms and we go through our struggles and face many challenges but in the end its worth it, because we have found home.

    I think it means that when you first looked into your true love's eyes, and you knew that you finally found the love that you have that you've been looking for a long time.And when you fell in love with that person,you think that their arms are open for you if you need a shoulder to cry on, a person to listen to your stories,or even a person to steal your heart. And once they met you,you thought that they had changed your life
