I know you like the night life, the parties and the fun.
You like to hang around until the last song has been sung.
So I have made arrangements, and I wanted you to know
when all the laughter's ended there's still somewhere you can go.

My arms stay open all night, from sundown 'til the morning light,
hoping you can find where you belong.
I leave the lights on.
My heart is never closed.
You're the only love it knows.
The one dream I have is to hold you tight.
My arms stay open all night.
Oh, yeah.

Please don't think I'm crazy, I haven't lost my mind.
But when it comes to loving you I can always find the time.
So if it's after midnight or just before the break of day,
any time you need me it'll never be too late.

'Cause my arms stay open all night, from sundown 'til the morning light,
hoping you can find where you belong.
I leave the lights on.
My heart is never closed.
You're the only love it knows.
The one dream I have is to hold you tight.
My arms stay open all night.
Oh, yeah.
When your so-called friends go home,
you don't ever have to be alone 'cause

My arms stay open all night, from sundown 'til the morning light,
hoping you can find where you belong.
I leave the lights on.
My heart is never closed.
You're the only love it knows.
The one dream I have is to hold you tight.
My arms stay open all night.
Ooh.
My arms stay open all night.
