In Your Arms

IN YOUR ARMS - Written by Carroll Bryant




When I am in your arms I can hardly breathe
Your eyes penetrate to the deepest places inside of me

Gently I touch your face, and breathe you into my soul
My love is there to hold and never to let you go

Too many words have all been said
By too many girls who cut me to death
Too many times I failed to see
I failed to believe in you
And me

When I am in your arms I don’t have to pretend
I will come to no harm, and you will be there for me in the end

Gently you lay me down, and fill me with so much love
It’s hard to get around knowing that we have been through so much

Too many promises have all been told
By too many girls on a heartless road
Too many times and so many lies
I faltered to know you
And I

Too many words have all been said
By too many girls watched me bled
Too many times I failed to believe
I failed to believe in you
And me

When I am in your arms I can hardly breathe
Your eyes penetrate to the deepest places inside of me

You’re inside of me

Every part of me

You’re inside of me

Frozen

FROZEN - Written by Carroll Bryant 




I’m frozen
Moments are stolen
Trapped like a treasure surprise
I’m chosen
To be un-lonely
Frozen by the look in your eyes
I could do cartwheels
From this feeling that I feel
An acrobatic gesture of love
I could do anything
From what this moment brings
I could grow me some wings
Right at this moment and fly
Into the another moment of time

I’m frozen
Heartbeats in motion
Covered by emotional landslides
I’m chosen
To be unbroken
Frozen from the touch of your life
I could do dances
In strange and unusual places
An energetic gesture of fate
I could do everything
From what this heartbeat can bring
I could be the rain of a cloudy day
Right in this heartbeat of mine
Just like a heartbeat of time

I could do anything
From what this moment brings
I could grow me some more wings
Right at this moment and fly
Into the another moment of time

I’m frozen
Flowers by the dozen
You’re something I’m glad I could find
Just one look from you and I became your fool
I’m frozen by the look in your eyes

I’m so unspoken
Touched by your hand in mine
Just one kiss from you and I became your ever loving fool
Yes frozen by the look of love in your eyes

Long, Long Time Ago

LONG, LONG TIME AGO - Written by Carroll Bryant 




Just when you think that the worst part is over
You’re going under
Everything around you turns into mush

Just when you think that you really can make it
You know you can take it
You see her again and you fall back into love

It doesn’t really matter how hard it hurts
You can’t override all the lost feelings left inside

I know it was a long, long time ago
When you broke my heart and walked away
I know it was a long, long time ago
But if you ask me, it still feels like yesterday

Just when you can find that old happy face
Knowing it was misplaced
Everyone around you starts breathing again

Just when you think that you know can do it
You look for to prove it
Only to succumb to the beginning of the end

It doesn’t really matter if she hates your guts
It’s still who you are and you carry the scars

I know it was a long, long time ago
When you broke my heart and walked away
I know it was a long, long time ago
But if you ask me, it still feels like yesterday
I know it was a long, long time ago
When you slapped my face and walked away
I know it was a long, long time ago
Pardon my love, but it still feels like yesterday

And you claw at the side of the walls you are trapped in
Crying for help and no one is listening
You do everything you can and still you don’t understand
How she got to be so under your skin

Just when you think that the worst part is over
You’re going under
Everything around you turns into mush

A wet painting dripping on the floor

I know it was a long, long time ago
When you broke my heart and walked away
I know it was a long, long time ago
But if you ask me, it still feels like yesterday
I know it was a long, long time ago
When you slapped my face and walked away
I know it was a long, long time ago
Pardon my love, but it still feels like yesterday
