Cutting Crew - (I Just) Died In Your Arms



This was written by Cutting Crew lead singer Nick Van Eede, who mentioned it was inspired by a real relationship.


"Yes, I cannot tell a lie. It's a song written about my girlfriend (who is actually the mother of my daughter). We got back together for one night after a year apart and I guess there were some fireworks but all the time tinged with a feeling of 'should I really be doing this?' Hence the lyric, 'I should have walked away.' I know it sounds corny but I awoke that morning and wrote the basic lyrics within an hour and wrote and recorded the demo completely within three days."


Lyrics


Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight

It must've been something you said

I just died in your arms tonight


I keep looking for something I can't get

Broken hearts lie all around me

And I don't see an easy way

To get out of this


Her diary sits by the bedside table

The curtains are closed, the cat's in her cradle

Who would've thought

That a boy like me could come to this?


Oh-oh-oh, whoa

Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight

It must've been something you said

I just died in your arms tonight

Oh-oh-oh, whoa


Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight

It must've been some kind of kiss

I should've walked away

I should've walked away


Is there any just cause for feeling like this?

On the surface, I'm a name on a list

I try to be discreet

But then blow it again


I've lost and found, it's my final mistake

She's loving by proxy, no give and all take

'Cause I've been thrilled to fantasy

One too many times


Oh-oh-oh, whoa

Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight

It must've been something you said

I just died in your arms tonight


Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight

It must've been some kind of kiss

I should've walked away

I should've walked away


It was a long hot night

She made it easy, she made it feel right

But now it's over, the moment is gone

I followed my hands, not my head

I know I was wrong


Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight

It must've been something you said

I just died in your arms tonight


Oh, I, I just died in your arms tonight

It must've been some kind of kiss

I should've walked away

I should've walked away
