Baby - Lyrics by Lloyd Cole


Lyrics
Wasting my time
A shadow on the riverbank
Watching my reflection go to sea
Wind in my hair
I could be most anywhere
But I do not care to know
Not where I stand
Baby, i
`ve been lost without you
Since I don
`t have a place to call my home
Oh, my sweet baby, must I empty my heart? Must I take what I can get and make it my own? As long as I love my baby
I
`m only lonely
She said not to call
Said it would be best for all concerned
If I just all but disappear
She loves you best
And I love her nonetheless
So I just listen to the voice on the machine, singing
Baby, i
`ve been lost without you
Since I don
`t have a place to call my home
Oh, my sweet baby, must I empty my heart? Must I take what I can get and call it my own? As long as I love my baby
I
`m only lonely
Maybe one day she
`ll call me up and say
God damn you your baby
`s crying
And i
`m lonely, come home
Maybe i
`ll find some guts someplace and drive up
And you
`ll be there playing on the porch and she
`ll
Just say
Baby, where you been? And ain
`t your little man growing? A pain in my mind
A shadow on the riverbank
Watching my reflection go to sea
Baby, i
`ve been lost without you
Since I don
`t have a place to call my home
Oh, my sweet baby, must I empty my heart? Must I take what I can get and make it my home? As long as I love my baby
I
`m only lonely
