[Intro]
A   E   A


[Verse 1]
         A                         
Oh these arms that hang here by my side,
           A                      A7
Yeah these arms that ache to open wide.
            D                         A
Are useless arms with nothing left to do,
            A   E                A
Since these arms stopped holding you.


[Verse 2]
         A
Oh these arms are worthless now to me,
             A                             A7
They let you go so how good could they be?
             D                        A
Just foolish arms for which I have no need,
          A              E                 A    D  A
A pair of arms that grew weak and set love free.


[Chorus]
E                                        D  A
 Reaching out to embrace a vacant memory,
E                                                       G                                
 Finding just the empty space, around what's left of me.
A    
 Two arms that failed completely,
D
 Arms both scarred so deeply.
B7                                         E
 Keep paying love's costs with each tragic sway.


[Instrumental]
A     A7   D   A   E   A  D  A  


[Chorus]
E                                                   D  A
 Trying meekly to assist my struggle with the truth.
E                                                 G
 Unable to resist what tears still make us view. 
A
 Two arms that failed completely,
D
 Arms both scarred so deeply.
B7                                         E
 Keep paying love's costs with each tragic sway.


[Verse 3]
            A
Wo-oh these arms that hang here by my side,
A                                     A7
Woah these arms that ache to open wide.
            D                         A
Two useless arms with nothing left to do,
A               E                A   D
Since these arms stopped holding you.
            A   E                A      E7    A
Since these arms stopped holding you.
