in my arms tonight lyrics – j.d. souther

that chip upon your shoulder makes you seem much older
but your just a kid in dangerous disguise
i know where you’ve been sleeping and you really should be weeping
for every time you never caught the prize
i don’t want to kiss you
and i don’t really miss you
say that your not ready and your right
but still i want you in my arms tonight.

now you jump at hidden dangers
you run to perfect strangers
and you know more than you’ll ever realize
you want to be my girlfriend
its like standing in a whirlwind
though this might truly cut us down to size.
i don’t want to kiss you and i don’t really miss you
we’re either out too loose, or in too tight
but still i want you in my arms tonight.
tonight

make me think of annabeth with pretty feet and perfect breath
i got on the boat and she stayed on the sh*r*
now the world around me is sinking
but i’m no worse off then i’d be thinking
that it’s you whose knocking at my door.

baby i don’t want to kiss you, much
i don’t really miss your touch
now thats just not right.
now here i want you in my arms
i can feel you in my arms tonight.
tonight
