The Arms Of Night Lyrics

by Jackson Browne

The things people do looking for understanding
Defy understanding
If only they knew where the love they seek
Is truly to be found
Into the arms of night with their dreams held tight
In their endless flight through the failing light

The places you go thinking that love may find you
When love is behind you
It's all you can do to let the angels
Find their own way home
Into the arms of night with your endless fright
With your face alight and your prey in sight
Into the breach in search of the new
Though after so many times
You will have betrayed that too

Into the arms of night with your endless fright
With your eyes all bright and your prey in sight
Into the arms of somebody new
Until that's no longer so,
And you are no longer true
