Lyrics

You know I never can relax
I'm always stiff and tense

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
And finally just relax

You know the world is cold and hard
(I gotta to sleep in your arms)
You gotta keep each other warm
(I gotta to sleep in your arms)

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
And finally just relax

You know I'm ok on my own
But I've been so long alone

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
And finally just relax

You know the world is cold and hard
(I gotta to sleep in your arms)
Let's dream walk hand in hand
(I gotta to sleep in your arms)

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
And finally just relax

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
And finally just relax

Lyrics

[This is called "I wanna sleep in your arms wrap me up in your hands"]

You know I never can relax
I'm always stiff and tense

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
And finally just relax

You know the world is cold and hard baby
(I want to sleep in your arms)
You gotta keep each other warm
(I want to sleep in your arms)

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
Finally just relax

You know the world is cold and hard
(I gotta to sleep in your arms)
Let's keep each other warm tonight
(I gotta to sleep in your arms)

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
Finally just relax

You know I never can relax baby
(I want to sleep in your arms)
I always feel ??? you know
(I want to sleep in your arms)

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm
Finally just relax

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
I'll finally feel calm at night
Finally just relax

I'm always stiff and tense, you know

I gotta to sleep in your arms
Wrap me up in your hands
