about

This song sat in the woodshed for quite some time, until we pressed it into service last fall as a backup in case the monthly recording schedule went awry due to the pandemic. Of course, that happened, so Toni and Michael devised sax and guitar ideas that took things to a new level. We were thinking of making this a strictly in-house production until Toni remembered Jon Fried’s bass parts when we ran through the song with the Campfire Flies a few times. And that’s what it needed, a heartbeat.

lyrics

Here In My Arms

Here in my arms
there’s a love song being written
nearly every minute
you and I are in it

Take me away
there’s a roadmap in the glovebox
a dollar on the dashboard
a sparkle in your eye

I’ll drown in your gold
there’s rain on the horizon
leaving and arriving
I’m slipping and I’m sliding

(chorus)
Stand
back when I’m closing the door
back where I’ve been once before
back in the throes
in the glow of the sun
of the one I’ve been waiting for

I’ve taken a shine
and I remember the feeling
rising to the ceiling
tethered to your smile

I’ll drown in your gold
there’s rain on the horizon
leaving and arriving
I’m slipping and I’m sliding

Take me away
there’s a roadmap in the glovebox
a dollar on the dashboard
a sparkle in your eye

(chorus)
