Die In Your Arms

Composer Dave Pirner
Length 3:21


My dad must have been drinking the night I was conceived
A flailing lost delirious sperm
A seaman/[semen] lost at sea
But someway, somehow I found you and the journey has been long
A troubled somber singer who had finally found a song
And I don't wanna do you no harm
Yes I just wanna to die in your arms

The bitter fighting cold froze the waves within their tracks
Trapped beneath the ice never to come back
The skaters whirled, and twirled, and glided effortless in motion
Laughing in their blissful dance upon the frozen ocean

Am I the only one that this happens to
Does this mother know no other
Well my broher taught me enough about love to know you are my lover

The ice cracked and crackled
And from it steam would rise
Her wings spread far and wide had whisked away the sky
And though I cannot see her now I still look everyplace
Washed upon the shore and saved by your humbling grace
And I don't wanna do you no harm
Yes, I just wanna die in your arms

I just wanna die in your arms
