arm around you lyrics – arthur russell

i’m sad and i can’t talk about it
all alone and right next to you
what i’m doing in a fine, this fine stretch of time

just once, yeah, you know you like it
you know that i’m, i’m really ready

i’m sad and i can’t talk about it
what i’m doing right next to you
what i’m doing in a fine, this fine stretch of time

just once to know you like it
you know that i’m really ready

i’m sad and i can’t talk about it
what i’m doing right next to you
what i’m doing in a fine, this fine stretch of time

just once, yeah, you know you like it
you know that i’m, i’m really ready
to put my arm around you
i have to put one arm around you
got to put one arm around you
got to put my arm around you

that’s you and that’s me and that’s me and you
that’s you and that’s me and that’s me and you, yeah in a rocket ship

i need to be told what to do
i’m in a world of my own
i need to be told what to do
it needs to be told what to do
it’s in a world of its own
it needs to be told what to do
it’s in a world of its own

got to put my arm around you, got to put my arm around you
it needs to be told what to do
it’s in a world, world of its own
got to put my arm around you
got to put one arm around you
i’ll touch the other side, side of your face
