Patty Larkin - Open Arms (Don't Explain) lyrics

You're born into a strangers' world
Learn the language word by word
Take a step and then you turn
And you don't explain

Mama holds her arms up too long
Daddy makes his arms look strong
Take another step and then you're gone
And you don't explain

And when the rain comes down
Feel like a waste of time
Fall into those open arms
Don't explain

The river runs along the road
And that's the story you get told
You tore the map and bound for gold
And they don't explain it

The teacher learned the truth from books
The preacher did all that he could
Reaching for you but it does no good
And it don't explain

And when the rain comes down
Feel like a waste of time
Fall into those open arms
Don't explain

At dawn a patchwork from above
A job that you've been dreaming of
When you land you kiss your love
And you don't explain

Lover holds you when others go
Colors you with another soul
Stands behind when you stand alone
And you don't explain

And when the rain comes down
Feel like a waste of time
Fall into those open arms
Don't explain

And when the rain comes down
Feel like a waste of time
Fall into those open arms
Don't explain

Born into a strangers' world
Learn the language word by word
Take a step and then you turn
And you don't explain
