I’m hoping it’s okay
And that you don’t mind
I borrowed your arms
To get to sleep last night
See, my heart’s a little battered
I mostly toss and turn
I’ve been out here in the cold
My wakeful body burns
My dreams are busted
This soul’s been used
Your smile looks like balm
To my psyche’s bruise
So I made your body beside me
I wrapped me in your arms
Sleep came for the first time in forever
I felt protected from harm
So if it’s okay with you
If it feels a bit of all right
I’m going to borrow your arms
Again tonight
