I remember when I gave you the key to my front door
Love had taken over this heart of mine
If you could only see the smile that comes across my face
When I hear your footsteps at my door
When I hear you walkin' up to my door
When you reach for me and take my hand
You take me know that you're my man
And I'll hold you and kiss you and warm you and love you
Cause I know that some day you'll find
You're safe in these lovin' arms of mine
I know what men are made of cause I've been around a few
They'll use you for awhile and leave you cold
You may cheat and run around cause you gotta have your fun
But like I told you many times before
You'll always have the key to my front door
When you reach for me and take my hand...
When you reach for me and take my hand...
Safe in these lovin' arms of mine safe in these lovin' arms of mine
