Heyy, peeps...

This is a song that I wrote during my freshman year. It's dedicated to this guy named Ethan, who is the lead guitarist/back-up singer in my favorite band, Nautical Twilight (the local Christian rock band that I named my guitar after...lol). It was one of my first really serious attempts at songwriting, so it's not the best thing out there, but heyy...I tried...lol. Anyways, let me know what you think!!! I hope you enjoy it!!!

Open Arms
By Sarah Pegues

I'm just a young girl who is looking for love;
asking God to send her an angel from above.
Well, it might sound crazy, but I could swear that it's true.
That angel I've been praying for, baby, is you.
As I lay awake at night, I long to hold you tight.
I can't stop wishing I could be with you.
I lay in the dark and wonder,
"Could he ever love me, too?"

With arms wide open, here I stand.
Please tell me that you'll be my man.
Will you shield me from life when it gets scary?
Over troubled waters, will you carry me?
I'd do the same for you if you wanted me to.
Could we be together?
Would we last forever?
Do you even wanna give it a try?
I promise you I'd never make you cry.
Just come and fall into these open arms of mine.
Ooh.
Yeah.

I think of you all the time--
in the day, and in the night;
when the sun is shining;
when the rain is pouring down.
I wonder, "Does he ever think of me?
Does he know that with him is where I wanna be?
Does he even wanna talk to me?"
I need to know the answers.
Please don't leave me hanging.
I understand that you might need some time for thinking.
I'm willing to wait.
I'll wait as long as it takes.

With arms wide open, here I stand.
Please tell me that you'll be my man.
Will you shield me from life when it gets scary?
Over troubled waters, will you carry me?
I'd do the same for you if you wanted me to.
Could we be together?
Would we last forever?
Do you even wanna give it a try?
I promise you I'd never make you cry.
Just come and fall into these open arms of mine.

I know it's quite a long shot.
I probably don't have a prayer.
But is there any hope at all that you'll choose to be there?
Miracles happen sometimes.
Tell me, baby, do you wanna be mine?
Woah.
Woah.
Woah.
Yeah.

With arms wide open, here I stand.
Baby, please tell me that you'll be my man.
Say you'll shield me from life when it gets scary.
Over troubled waters, come and carry me.
Take my hand.
Don't leave me alone.
Don't let me look up and you be gone.
Say that we can be together.
We might not last forever,
but please say that you will give it a try.
And boy, please don't ever make me cry.
Just come and fall into these open arms of mine.
Oh.
Yeah.
Yeah.
Just come and fall into these open arms of mine.
Ooh.
I wanna hold you in these open arms of mine.
Mm.

Haha...you don't have to tell ME twice!!! I'm still looking. My first boyfriend was a total and complete JERK...and then alll the other guys I've liked have either just totally shut me out, led me on, or just wanted to keep things on the "just friends" level. The guy I wrote this song for is one of those guys who wants to just be friends. Soo, yeahh...pretty disheartening. But I know he's out there somewhere. Alright...I'm rambling. Sorry...lol. Anyways...glad you liked it!!!
