If I don't say this now
I will surely break
As I'm leaving the one
I want to take
Forgive the urgency but
Hurry up and wait
My heart has started to separate

Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
Oooooh.
Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
I'll look after you

There now, steady love,
So few come and don't go
Will you want to ,
Be the one I always know
When I'm losing my control,
The city spins around
You're the only one
Who knows, you slow it down

Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
Ooooooh,
Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
I'll look after you
And I look after you

If ever there was a doubt
My love, she leans into me
This most assuredly counts
She says most assuredly

Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
I look after you
After you
Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
Ooooooh,

It's always have and never hold
You've begun to feel like home
What's mine is yours to leave or take
What's mine is yours to make your own

Oooh, Oooh
Be my baby
Ooooooh,
Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
Ooooooh,
Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
Ooooooh,
Oooh, Oooh,
Be my baby
Ooooooh.

    The Fray.. their songs-- they never fail me.. they seam words comparable to a beautiful embroidery.. and they put the words in a rhythm unique to their art. Simply great. m/

    really really good!
    I think its about two lovers saying their good-byes but even though they're not together anymore they will still look after each other?

    Hi all,
    This song 'look after you' was originally written by issac slade for his then-girlfriend and and future wife anna, while she lived in australia.
    The only question my mind is where is the one and only one that i'll ever know..!..?
    I wish i find her soon... Cause it's only her who'll slow it down!
