To hold onto you with open arms
This is paradoxical, since physically it would be tough to hold on if your arms were open. She wants him because she loves him, but she can’t help that pull of living dangerously, teetering on the edge of losing him. Loving with open arms is more exciting than knowing she has a sure thing. he’d get bored. She is trying to be accepting of what she ‘found in him’ and go with it, perhaps the way circus daredevils on a trapeze hold on to each other?
