(I Wanna) Hold You In My Arms

 This is another old song of mine and another one of those unrequited love ones. I used to write a lot of them.

When you’re near me darling
I start to shake trying to make myself stand still
I wanna hold you in my arms
I wanna hold you in my arms
But my hands are filled

When you’re near me darling
You fill up all that emptiness inside
I wanna hold you in my arms
I wanna hold you in my arms
But my hands are tied

How can anyone be satisfied
If they don’t have you?
I can’t escape you but god knows I’ve tried
I can’t escape you but god knows I’ve tried
I can’t escape you but god knows I’ve tried, girl

Twenty years on bread and water
And every day I say it won’t be too long
I wanna hold you in my arms
I wanna hold you in my arms
I wanna hold you in my arms
But I’m not that strong

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
