Love Has Open Arms

from the album "Live - Bootleg '82

1982 Words and Music by Terry Taylor
Run away from what you know is right
Turn your eyes from daylight and you spend the night
Where'd you go wrong now it's so easy to lose track
Though you've gone some distance
You're always welcome back

'Cause love has open arms
He never has forsaken you
Love has open arms
Down let the world keep on breaking you down
No, no come on home

Prodigal child there's a storm at sea
Your in the middle and that's a bad place to be
No you won't rest till your safely on the shore
You hear the call to Jesus, don't you fight it anymore

'Cause love has open arms
He never has forsaken you
Love has open arms
Down let the world keep on breaking you down
No, no come on home

Didn't I see you with a bible in your hand
And a smile upon your face?
Well those are good days, my friend
Well do they have to end?
But you know there is no reason
Why you can't be there again

You've run away from what you know is right
Turn your eyes from daylight and you spend the night
Where'd you go wrong now it's so easy to lose track
though you've gone some distance
You're always welcome back

'Cause love has open arms
He never has forsaken you
Love has open arms
Down let the world keep on breaking you down
No, no come on home... come on home... come on home
