Father's Arms

from the album "Shotgun Angel"

Words and Music by Terry Scott Taylor
1977 Maranatha! Music
"Alright, okay, oh yeah
Keep your cool and don't hurt nobody
It all lies within you", so the dying say
And you believe in the words of some buried prophet

"Alright, okay, oh yeah"
They nod their heads in unanimous approval
And it makes you fell good 'till the night wind calls
And the darkness comes whispering down the halls
And you're a scared little child who dreams he falls, come

Chorus:
Fall in your father's arms
Fall in your father's arms
Fall in your father's arms
Alright, oh yeah, uh huh

You turn, you run, you hide
A friend comes bid you travel
And he smiles like an angel but behind the eyes
Lurks the door of the death-house and the big surprise
"Alright, okay, oh yeah"
You assure them while composure is breaking
And they watch as you run and you hit the wall
Slump to the ground, and begin to crawl
To the edge of the cliff where you start your fall, come

Chorus:
Fall in your father's arms
Fall in your father's arms
Fall in your father's arms
Alright, oh yeah, uh huh

Father's arms waiting
To carry you, man
Through all the changing
Back home again

Repeat 2nd verse and chorus
