Missy Higgins – Sugar Cane lyrics

Baby ballerina's hiding somewhere in the corner,
Where the shadow wraps around her
And our torches cannot find her,
She will stay there 'til the morning,
Crawl behind us as we are yawning,
And she will leave our game to never be the same.

So grow tall Sugarcane.
Eat that soil, drink the rain.
But know they'll chase you if you play their little games.
So run, run fast Sugarcane.

You see my peep show booth is handy.
There's a one way only mirror,
So I can dance here with my hair down,
But I don't see when you get bitter.
And there's a garden right beside me
If I happen to want a wall to hide me
If only the ballerina had one too.

So grow tall Sugarcane.
Eat that soil, drink the rain.
But know they'll chase you if you play their little games.
So run, run fast Sugarcane.
And she said "Always, be afraid."
Yeah she said, "Always, be afraid."

To grow tall Sugarcane.
Eat that soil, drink the rain.
But know they'll chase you if you play their little games.
So run, run fast Sugar Cane.
Yeah you'd better run, run fast Sugarcane.
You'd better run, run fast Sugarcane.
