Christina Perri – Arms lyrics

I never thought that you
Would be the one to hold my heart
But you came around
And you knocked me off the ground from the start

You put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go
You put your arms around me and I'm home

How many times will you let me
Change my mind and turn around
?
I can't decide if I'll let you save my life
Or if I'll drown


I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let our love get so close
You put your arms around me and I'm home

The world is coming down on me
And I can't find a reason to be loved

I never wanna leave you
But I can't make you bleed if I'm alone


You put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go...

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let our love get so close...
You put your arms around me and I'm home...

I try my best to never let you in
To see the truth
And I've never opened up
I've never truly loved till you

Put your arms around me
And I believe that it's easier for you to let me go...

I hope that you see right through my walls
I hope that you catch me 'cause I'm already falling
I'll never let our love get so close...
You put your arms around me and I'm home...
You put your arms around me and I'm home.

    She hasn't had much luck in the past and doesn't feel she is worthy of love, which leads her to be more confused about this releationship. She doesn't want to leave him, however if she leaves him she won't be able to hurt him. She loves him so much she is freaking herself out, she doesn't want to hurt him, she doesn't want to get hurt, she is in a battle with her emotions and the love she has for him.

    I get the meaning of her song exactly. Its a mirror image of how I've been living my life with a special someone for the last 5 years but have been so scared to be in a relationship, though I love him dearly deep down but won't let him know for fear of how things will turn out. I met him 5 years ago when I was destructive to myself and all he wanted to do was help me but I wasn't ready to stop. In that I broke his heart, but he was the only one who could see all my bullshit. I moved away, and regretted it ever since. I want to run into his arms again now but can't. Now were both so far away, talk constantly of how life would of been better. And how he was and still is what can keep me grounded from destruction. When we do see each other I can't wait to run back home to him. =/

    She battles with her feelings and continues to go back and forth with him. He continues to accept her, no matter what. She doesn't understand why he would do this. She doesn't realize that he is just as "in love" with her as she is with him. She battles with her feelings and the realization that he could be her salvation, accepting him could save her, rejecting him will lead to her demise.

    We all project our own lives onto the music, so I imagine a daughter singing this at a time when she has become a newly independent adult. Since my daughter has recently left home, I know I can't protect her or even really know who she is right now. It isn't easy to let her go, but she knows that when she needs to she can always come home and I will put my arms around her no matter what.

    When I first heard this song, I didn't really think about the meanings behind the words too much- but now that I've heard it a few times, I can see how well it can relate to a million situations. Now when I hear it- it relates to mine: the girl is hopelessly in love with someone who she knows she will never be the best person for. She's never had a relationship in which she could fully open up, trust, and really fall in love- and now that she has met him, she suddenly thinks she can. But, that thought is a scary one because she knows that if she lets him love her- she runs the risk of hurting him even more. And it comes to the point where she must decide if she is going to risk it- and let him transform her life, or if she is going to save him from her- even if it takes away her only chance to really experience and enjoy living. She tries to back down. She tries not to love him. She tries to build a wall so that she'll never hurt him. But secretly, she wants them to be together more than she's ever wanted anything. She wants him to be the one she talks to about everything, the one he falls asleep thinking about, the one who holds her heart and who's heart she holds. It's a beautiful song about conflicted emotions, and a seemingly doomed love. She doesn't deserve him. She'll probably hurt him. But she needs him more than she can even describe, and is forced to choose between protecting him, or helping her.
