about

The title track – inspired by John Steinbeck’s ‘The Grapes of Wrath’, speaking of migrant people camped by the roadside for the night – ‘so that in the dark the eyes of the people were inward and their minds played in other times and their sadness was like rest, like sleep’. Dispossession is a growing situation also in our time

lyrics

There are times when I don’t know
There are places I won’t go easily
There are rivers running underground
And I know soon I’m going down

There are times when days are hard
There are days when it is worlds away
There are moments in your arms
When shadows fall and dreams can play

Chorus
In your arms I hear the guitar play
In your arms I find rest from the day
In your arms I let the sadness stray
Into my dreams
In your arms I lay my head with yours
In your arms down on this grassy floor
In your arms the fire burns down low
Into my dreams

There are times when I can’t sleep
And the cold of darkness pulls too deep
There are tears that startle in my eyes
It wasn’t love that told you all those lies

There are times when I’m alone
I watch the people traveling down this road
They’ve nothing to their many names but hope
And faith in human kindness

Chorus
In your arms I hear the guitar play
In your arms I find rest from the day
In your arms I let the sadness stray
Into my dreams
In your arms I lay my head with yours
In your arms down on this grassy floor
In your arms the fire burns down low
Into my dreams

Into my dreams
