I don't usually post song lyrics.  Music for some reason doesn't resonate with me quite like it does others.  I like the beat and all but if I'm going to quote lyrics, they are usually Weird Al's.

That being said this song is resonating with me..

Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face
Well I don't know if I'm ready
To be the man I have to be
I'll take a breath, I'll take her by my side
We stand in awe, we've created life
Now everything has changed
I'll show you love
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open
If I had just one wish
Only one demand
I hope he's not like me
I hope he understands
That he can take this life
And hold it by the hand
And he can greet the world
With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I'll show you everything
With arms wide open
-With Arms Wide Open by Creed


  1. You hope he's NOT like you? (line 16)
    For shame, Carl, for shame! I, for one, hope your son (or daughter) is a LOT like you: caring, kind, friendly, funny, loving and kick-ass at Rock Band.

  2. Thanks Dave, but I hope .1 is a better person than me..
