THE MARIAH NETWORK

Open Arms

Originally recorded by Journey in 1981, Mariah released her cover of the song in late 1995 outside the US. She also recorded a Spanish version of the song, titled "El Amor Que Soñé."

Spanish Version

Lying beside you, here in the dark
Feeling your heart beat with mine
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere
How could our love be so blind

We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are by my side

So now I come to you, with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am, with open arms
Hoping you'll see what your love means to me
Open arms...

Living without you, living alone
This empty house seems so cold
Wanting to hold you, wanting you near
How much I wanted you home

But now that you've come back
Turned night into day
I need you to stay

So now I come to you, with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am, with open arms
Hoping you'll see what your love means to me...
Open arms

Solo dos cuerpos, jugando a amar
Juntos en la oscuridad
Fuimos queriendo, cada vez más
Nada podía cambiar

El paso del tiempo
Nos quiso alejar
Y nuestro amor pudo más

Y ahora estoy frente a ti, amándote
Mi corazón no puede esconder
Que yo sin ti no sé querer
Vuelvo a vivir a tu lado el amor
Que soñé...

Sola en mi cuarto, sin tu calor
Fui conociendo el temor
Te quise tanto, mi alma te di
Hoy que regresas a mí

Se llena el vacío
Se apaga el dolor
Hoy tengo tu amor

Y ahora estoy frente a ti, amándote
Mi corazón no puede esconder
Que yo sin ti no sé querer
Vuelvo a vivir a tu lado el amor que soñé
Que soñé...
