Christina Perri is ready to follow-up her successful debut single 'Jar of Hearts' with the new song 'Arms,' from her upcoming album 'Lovestrong.'
Like its predecessor, 'Arms' is built around a piano melody. The track starts off as a slow love song, but midway through, drums kick in and take the song in an up-tempo direction.
Perri begins, "I never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart / You came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start."
Later, the relationship seems to be in question when Perri expresses self-doubt, singing, "The world is coming down on me and I can't find a reason to be loved / I never wanna leave you but I can't make you bleed if I'm alone." Ultimately, she finds comfort, as she ends by repeating the hook, "You put your arms around me and I'm home."
'Lovestrong.' will hit stores on May 10. On her blog, Perri promises, "There's an epic music video for 'Arms' coming soon... I cannot wait."
