|"Open Arms" is a song by American
Journey. It was released as a single from
their 1981 album,
Escape. Co-written by band members
Steve Perry and
Jonathan Cain, the song is a
power ballad whose lyrics are an empowering
plea to a lover to forgive past wrongdoings and agree to start anew. It
is one of the band's most recognizable radio hits and their biggest US
Billboard Hot 100 hit, reaching number
two in February 1982 and holding that position for six weeks...
Journey's recording of "Open Arms" has been described as one of the greatest love songs ever written; VH1 named the song as the greatest power ballad of all time. Mike DeGagne of AllMusic has described it as "One of rock's most beautiful ballads", which "gleams with an honesty and feel only Steve Perry could muster."

Thank you so much for your touching remembrances, Wanda and Butch! I added your remarks to her Teacher page, and in so doing noticed what a shambles it was. Apparently it was one of the first pages added to the Teachers section back in 2002, and I must have been upset when I last updated it. I added her photo from the 1952 Anchor (which was not available to me earlier) as well, so it's a bit better now. NNHS65 website!

Words and Music by Steve Perry and Jonathan Cain
Lying beside you, here in the dark
Feeling your heart beat with mind
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere
How could our live be so blind
We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are by my side
So now I come to you, with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you'll see what your love means to me
Living without you, living alone
This empty house seems so cold
Wanting to hold you, wanting you near
How much I wanted you home
But now that you've come back
Turned night into day
I need you to stay.
