Hold You In My Arms by Ray LaMontagne

When you came to me with your bad dreams and your fears
It was easy to see that you'd been crying
Seems like everywhere you turn catastrophe it reigns
But who really profits from the dying
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you in my arms forever

When you kissed my lips with my mouth so full of questions
It's my worried mind that you quiet
Place your hands on my face
Close my eyes and say
Love is a poor man's food
Don't prophesize
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
And I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever

So now we see how it is
This fist begets the spear
Weapons of war
Symptoms of madness
Don't let your eyes refuse to see
Don't let your ears refuse to hear
Or you ain't never going to shake this sense of sadness
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold on forever
And I could hold you in my arms
I could hold forever

he's amazing!!! I just discovered him not too long ago

this guy has such a unique voice. He's got that Al Green meets john mayer(new bluesy john of course) vibe.

I love grunge music, too bad it faded..

I love Ray Lamontagne. He is a wonderfully unique song writer with a voice that is beautiful. I listen to his song "Empty" on repeat in the car when I am driving alone.

I love this song, it only makes me cry when I listen to it.

Ray Lamontagne is amazing,<br />
I think burn is my favourite song of his. music to inspire and lear from for sure.<br />
His album till the sun turns black reminds me of good times :)

Empty is my favorite but that is a great song. I play and write myself and I look up to that guy. He found a way to capture it all...

thanks davidSH. Those are my fav. songs from Ray as well. =)

if u like this song u think empty it think it is better but this is an amazing song to i love him.

ray lamontagne... enjoyable indeed. he's one of the best songwriters i've heard in quite awhile. my personal favorites are "jolene", "trouble", and "how come". not only does he write great lyrics, but both the texture and inflection of his voice is incredible... great pick rosesencha.

I absolutely love this song! First heard it on the soundtrack for the movie The Last Kiss and it has remained one of my favorites. His voice unique and beautiful.

You asked me to read the article titled " Music And Art" and make a comment.<br />
When there are no words, kisses and hugs, and no physical connection, I find solace and beauty in our music. Thankfully, our music travels within us no matter where each of us may be. <br />
However, when we are together, our music becomes a formidable force of nature that activates that supernatural part of us (Love) which is greater than the sum of our parts. We know that Love is scientifically undetectable yet undeniably felt.<br />
<br />
<br />
Love is music and it makes me a gourmet taster of our lively animated friendship, and our intimate paring of wine-like words. You, alone, are sustenance and my dessert. <br />
<br />
<br />
Music permeates ALL of US. We EXPRESS it and it translates us.<br />
<br />
<br />
I believe Music and Art have placed us out of the mundane, and it cushions the senseless things of life and death. I speak of that music called Love, as well as music expressed by instruments.<br />
<br />
<br />
We are the instruments and the music. We are the creative undetectable force.<br />
<br />
I love YOU!

cute love this
