Tar Baby - Lyrics by Plus One


Lyrics
Granma came to see

Something she could not believe

How could her girl be

So naive
Tar baby, tar baby told

The secret she conceived

That big old smile of yours

Could turn the wind into a song

How could I have doubted

Honey it's with me you belong

Tar baby, tar baby
I love you so

Like a brand new blade

You cut into my life

Cut through two decades

Like a hot coal on ice

Tar baby, my tar baby

It maybe was meant to be

When I look at you
I can't believe my eyes

And with your magic
I think you just might charm the birds out of the sky

Tar baby, tar baby, tar baby

Came good out of grief

A golden thread inside of the web

That I got caught in

Oh, it's a lover's revenge, but out of the pain

Come the best things you see

You cut into my life
You cut into my life (baby baby baby baby don't you know that)

You cut into my life (I love you)
You cut into my life

La la la la la ooh

You can turn the wind into a song

La la la la la baby baby baby

It's with me you belong
