You light me up and then I fall for you
You lay me down and then I call for you
Stumbling on reasons that are far and few
I'd let it all come down and then some for you

Pretty baby don't you leave me
I have been saving smiles for you
Pretty baby why can't you see
You're the one that I belong to
I'll be the embrace that keeps you warm
For you're the sun that breaks the storm
I'll be alright and I'll sleep sound
As long as you keep comin' around, oh pretty baby

And I know things can't last forever
But there are lessons that you'll never learn
Oh just the scent of you it makes me hurt
So how's it you that makes me better

Pretty baby don't you leave me
I have been saving smiles for you
Pretty baby why can't you see
You're the one that I belong to
I'll be the embrace that keeps you warm
For you're the sun that breaks the storm
I'll be alright and I'll sleep sound
As long as you keep comin' around

Why can't you hold me and never let go
When you touch me it is me that you own
Pretty baby oh the place that you hold in my heart
Would you break it apart again... oh pretty baby

Pretty baby don't you leave me
I have been saving smiles for you
Pretty baby why can't you see
You're the one that I belong to
I'll be the embrace that keeps you warm
For you're the sun that breaks the storm
I'll be alright and I'll sleep sound
As long as you keep comin' around

Pretty baby
Why can't you see?
Pretty baby
Don't you leave me
Pretty baby
Why can't you see?
Pretty baby
Don't you leave me
Oh, pretty baby
My pretty baby, oh
My pretty baby

    Nostalgic. This song really reminds me of that guy I used to call mine. I exactly remember the first time we met. The first time we held each other. Our first kiss. Until that day when we reached a point when everything has changed. That feeling like as if breathe was draw out of me. I cried a river to a point that I sometime wonder where those tears coming from. I feel so dehydrated. Until that day, i'll still be waiting for you, my pretty baby.

    This song reminds me of an amazing guy that I`m going out with, his name is Walter, he is everything I wanted in a relationship even though were apart from eachother right now cuz he moved back to Vegas well be together again someday. I want to dedicate this song to him with all my heart, he actually has dedicated a song to me too called "I dont want to miss a thing" I think that we were ment to be together cuz he cant live without me and I cant live without him. I love you baby!
