Open Arms

“Love is always open arms. If you close your arms about love
you will find that you are left holding only yourself.”

Leo Buscaglia
(31 Mar 1924 - 11 June 1998)


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today's theme song was originally suggested by my tellybision.

BONUS - - Open Arms - Journey


"Open Arms" is a song by American rock band 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...[1]

Journey's recording of "Open Arms" has been described as one of the greatest love songs ever written;[2][3] VH1 named the song as the greatest power ballad of all time.[4] 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."[5]

Open Arms Recipes - Easy Hamburger Chili - "... I am glad I gave chili a try because now it is one of my favorite soups when I am in need of something to warm my insides. Not only is chili a great way to warm up, but it is packed with nutritional benefits. Chili is a great source of fiber, protein, Vitamin A, and Vitamin C. Without even realizing it, you are getting a bowl full of nutrients when you eat chili!"

Open Arms

Words and Music by Steve Perry and Jonathan Cain

Recorded by Journey, 1981

Lying beside you, here in the dark
Feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere
How could our love 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
Open arms

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.
