Aiken, Clay - These Open Arms Lyrics




What if everything you ever took for granted, was gone?
And everything you ever thought was right, was wrong?
And what if everyone you ever loved was torn, from the pages of your life?
Would you reach out for tomorrow, or try to turn back time?

These open arms will wait for you
These open arms can pull us through
Between what's left and left to do
These open arms
These open arms
These open arms will wait for you

Did you really love the ones you said you loved, think twice.
And did you make a bit of difference in somebody elses life?
Tell me, is there someone you can count on when you need a friend?
Can you see I need a friend?

These open arms will wait for you
These open arms can pull us through
Between whats left and left to do
These open arms
These open arms
These open arms will wait for you

Surrendering high
Give in, stop questioning why
Open your heart up to love & you'll see you will find

These open arms will wait for you
These open arms can pull us through
Between what's left and left to do
These open arms
These open arms
These open arms
These open arms
These open arms will wait for you

    I absolutely adore Clay Aiken and Bon Jovi.

    This is the 2nd song on this channel that just seems off to me and I figured out what it is.
    I know that Clay is naturally a high tenor but he has got to bring it down at least a couple of steps for these kinds of songs

  7. Nerriza Garcia

    I really love his voice,its so nice to hear his voice.

  8. Hary Purnama

    bon jovi's version is much better

    Stella Wynia

    He is not bon jovi. His name is Clay Aiken

  9. Hary Purnama

    bon jovi's version is much better

  10. David Roossien

    Jesus is love his arms cover us with love he is the light of the world!

  11. Vickie Wilson

    I think clay should of won American idol hands down he can sing alot better than Ruben Stoddard any day clay has alot more range in his voice than Ruben I always thought it was bought out.

  12. MrJacobrabbit

  26. Patsy Casper

  28. OLGER DAVID RUIZ PALOMARES

    Canta muy bien, pero me parece una copia de Barry Manilow.
    He sings very well but seems to me a copy of Barry Manilow.

  29. gerra730

    He really is a great singer.  And damn, he looks so hawt here!  

  30. PabloSantaFe87

    very good cover, but Bon Jovi's version is better

    Lori Castilleja

    technically this is not a cover. Jon did write this song but he never released it on a Bon Jovi album. there is another song called "Open All Night" that was on the Bounce album and another on the boxed set called "these arms are open all night". Let's not forget "In These Arms" from the Keep the Faith album. all different songs but similar titles. Jon said once this song title kept running through his mind so he kept writing it until he "got it right" which was the Bounce release. 😄

    PabloSantaFe87

    +Lori Castilleja I know but no matter is released it by Bon Jovi, the song circulated to anyone It had been different if was in vault.

    Uncle Bozo

    +Lori Castilleja +PabloSantaFe87 Bon Jovi did actually release their version, as a Japan-only bonus track on Have a Nice Day. Best song on that album.

    PabloSantaFe87

    Is true

  31. Aikenclay P

    Clay is a beautiful person.. Inside and out.. Love his voice and those beautiful green eyes.. Love him!!!  :-)

  32. Sylvia Sunshine

    Yes these arms are open

  33. Salve Critizer

    great performance! he is flawless!

  34. Terri Miller

    I.m glad your still performing GREAT!!!!!

  35. Fede Brown

    I agree, Bon Jovi's version is better, but this guy is good too.

  36. Aikenclay P

    I love this song so much! I use to listen to it and it said it wasen't available in our Country. I love Clay singing it so much!!!!! Thanks ClayAikenVEVO for posting this!!!
    You just made me night. :-)

  37. Saymorian

    I like Bon Jovi's version because it's his song and all that. But I love Clay's voice more so this version has to be my favourite and I love the look he gives the camera as he stops singing at the end... <3

  38. Mònica M

    I prefer Bon Jovi version! This one is good but BJ is better

  39. trelemorele

    WHY the heck bon jovi gave it song away?! it's so much better in their version :C:C:C

    Uncle Bozo

    Jon Bon Jovi is known to have terrible judgment on which songs to release as singles and include on albums. "Livin' on a Prayer" only made the final cut of Slippery When Wet because Richie saw its potential.

  40. Cena Smily

    i love <3 this song jon bon jovi sing that song album have a nice day!!!!
