above the plains of omaha i think of all the suffering i saw
the soaking of the pavement sprawled upon a land without a law
everything i loved, everything i found or, i hoped for
frightened, i’m surrounded, who else is there to turn to anymore?

oh, i held out my arms – oh, i held out my arms – held out my arms

there was a time i spoke the truth but my younger years were wasted on my youth
somewhere i awakened with a crack to a pounding on the roof
sure, i heard the sound as evidence, or better yet, as proof
i was as naked as the day that i was born beneath the fullness of the moon

oh, i held out my arms – oh, i held out my arms – held out my arms

far away i hear singing
far away, a song

the blinding light of morning came flooding through the window like a friend
like a wild revelation – like a shining invitation to attend
spoken as a prayer – unbroken by despair – i make amends
the love inside our hearts is the only kind of savior we’ve been sent

oh, i held out my arms – oh, i held out my arms – held out my arms
