Well I just heard the news today
Seems my life is gonna change
I close my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open

With arms wide open

Well I don't know if I'm ready
To be the man I have to be
I take a breath, I take her by my side
We stand in awe, we've created life

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open

With arms wide open
I'll show you everything oh yeah
With arms wide open

If I had just one wish only one demand
I hope he's not like me I hope he understands
That he can take this life and hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world with arms wide open

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
Wth arms wide open

With arms wide open
I'll show you everything oh yeah
With arms wide open

    This song implies that he is going to be a father for first time, althou he does not know what to do with him, he is willing "with arms wide open" to raise the kid with good teachings. He wants the baby to be different then him.

    yeah.. as he said.. i think this is a man who's now a dad for the first time and he doesn't know what to do yet but with his open arms, he is accepting this responsibility and commitment..♥

    This song is about a man who has a new baby he doesnt want the baby to be like him but he wants to show the new born everything in the world that he should see. He does it with arms wide open so it means he wants to do it nad is not forced to!
