Arms lyrics

Arms – Christina Perri

I never thought that
you would be the one to hold my heart
but you came around
and you knocked me off the ground from the start

you put your arms around me
and I believe that it's easier for you to...

    This song to me describes a girl who knows that being with this one person is what's best for her. She has walls built from being hurt that she keeps doubting and keeps walking away from him and coming back and he always takes her back. She wants him to see through her walls so he can handle all her insecurities. It's easy to give up then to go through something that could end up as heartbreak. She knows deep inside that home is in his arms but she's so scared to get hurt and let go and just let it be

    Any one can relate it to her story
    I also relate it to mine,When I watched the video it touched me hard,It is totally some one like me
    I love him and serious for commitment,he is afraid of taking it serious,need more time and is not in a struggle as I am(he is sleeping in white blanket with an innocent face)
    I sometimes decide to date some one else and leave to marry,I sometimes initiate it but then again without him knowing what happened to me ,I'm back to him
    He wonders why i was in my own shell for a while but again I'm in his arms
    He proposing me is like saving me from this struggle,I can never be sure he will.
    I love him to death and he won't stop loving me so I can leave him in peace
    We are in peace with each other but my struggle to have what I want(a family)make me fall(emotionally)

    I think it's about a girl who really love this boy, but she's afraid that she'll be hurt/ he doesn't deserve her. When she says "I believe it's easier for you to let me go", it means she really loves him and doesn't want to let go, but she doesn't think he deserves her. All in all, its a beautiful song c:

    This is a story about a young woman who really loves a man, but is afraid that he doesn't think it is as serious as she feels. Regardless, she still feels safe around him, although she is afraid that if he sees who she really is, he might be drawn away.

    i believe this song is about a girl who falls in love with a boy she never knew shed have a chance with. this is about the girl being insecure and her knowing that he deserves better. because of her insecurities she has has walls up and when she sings "I believe that it's easier for you to let me go" shes saying that she doesnt want him to stay with her just for her to be happy because shes never going to be good enough for him, but at the same time she "cant decide if she'll let him save her life, or if she'll drown". this whole song is what she feels and how she feels about him, she doesnt believe she deserves him and she wants to see him happy so shes willing to leave him even if it hurts her. but she hopes he will see right through all of those walls, and stop her from leaving because shes ready to.

    I think it means, She can always find comfort in his arms and how he lets her go her way, but she wants him to look past any of her problems/ look past her walls.

    I think it's about a girl who gave a guy a chance and ended up falling for him. But in the process of getting to know eachother she tried to make it seem like she was perfect. Now, she's not sure if he will accept her imperfections and flaws. She sees herself as a bad person because of this and it causes problems in the relationship. She doubts that he will still love her after she shows him her flaws and therefore she's scared. But, she doesn't want to lose him because she truly loves him. She wages war with herself trying to figure out if she will let him see the true her or if she will drive him away to save both of them the pain and heartache.

    Something like that. This song describes the situation I'm going through at the moment perfectly.

    I think its about a personal love for a boy and she is scared that he does not love her back and she trys to keep a seceret from the world hence the walls yet she opens up to her love and lets him into her mind and tells him that she does not want to lose him.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This song means different things to people, as you can see from all of the different opinons. But I can ralate to this song in a way that eats me inside.
    I think that Perri is in love, but like me, she doesn't want to open up. She doesn't want to get hurt. So she starts to pull away. But I think that "Arms" doesn't mean anything other than arms. "Arms" represents love and strength. She begins to pull away, then he puts his arms around her and all of her walls come down. She is forced to let him in. But she's never REALLY let anyone in before him because of fear of getting hurt. But she keeps changing her mind. "I don't know if I'll let you save my life or if I'd drown." he is being really supportive and she feels frusturated because he's not doing anything to make her hate him.In the end, she makes the right decision: she stops pulling away, she stops for two seconds and realizes that he's the one, that she gonna let herself fall so he can catch her.

    Like I said, this song has a very deep meaning to me.

    I think its about a girl who is scared if he gets too close that she'll hurt him or drive him away. I think she has a past that she doesn't want him to know because she's afraid he'll walk away. But she is too in love with him to walk away so she stays in his arms.
    When she says "I hope that you see right through my walls" she means that she wants to tell him but doesn't want to say it, herself because she's afraid he'll hate her.

    Arms is about how a woman falls in love with a person she'd never expect to. Like a person who she previously hated or held vendetta with. But in the end, she found that he was the only one who she could be with, regardless of how much she had to hurt, and hurt him, to get that message across.

    I think maybe she's in love as she's afraid to show it and the walls is like what's keeping her from actually telling him but I hop you see through right through my walls mans I hope you know I love you without me having to tell you plus it sounds like she's afraid to trust because it says save my life or if ill drown. Such a powerful song!

    About someone who loves someone that is shy and they hope that the other loves them as much

    I think the song is about a girls who is trying to decide between being in love or leaving. And in the end she realizes that love will overtake all and that in his Arms she will always find comfort.♥
