about

I wrote “When She Held Me In Her Arms” back in 2000. It’s been a favorite throughout my career because of the passion and energy in the lyrics, performance and storytelling.

It’s hard to keep so much on fire emotion in an actual love life. But I still hold on to a memory from MileHiCon in Denver. Gwen flew out to the convention. I sang her the song at my table. I can still see her smile. I think of her every single time I sing the song.

As I round the lyrical corner to “twenty years later”, I am reminded that we’ve been married for eleven years as I write this. And I’ve not regretted a day. She makes me a better person.

lyrics

Through the market, I wandered and prayed
That I'd find me a woman I might marry one day.
Well, I never dreamed when I prayed that prayer
That the woman I longed for was standing there.

* When she held me in her arms that night,
I held her close, and I held her tight.
And I swore that day forth, I'd love her all of me life
When she held me in her arms that night.

She smelled of the sweetest lilac skin.
And I admit it now it drew me in
Oh, her voice cast a spell I could not disobey.
Every word was a river that swept me away.

Oh, the market became a more beautiful place,
The flowers more fragrant, and the clothing all lace.
And her eyes, oh, her eyes! They begged me to stay.
And twenty years later, I've not regretted a day.
