Lloyd Cole – Baby 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
