"Crawl Babies" as written by Martin Hayward and Bernice Simpson....
She comes walking down the road
And I know that dogs won't bark
She comes walking up the stairs
She's tap-tap-tapping on my door

And she'll make those tears to know that it's a must
But I go blind and my mouth fills up with dust

Says she's open like a book
She's got everything I need
Even wants to take the time
To teach me how to read

But the ceiling moves on down towards the floor
And soon there's only room enough for us to crawl

I wanna build her up
Up as tall as a church
Just to watch her
Just to watch her falling down
I can't see her again
I just can't see her again
I've got to see her again
I've got to see her again

She comes walking down the road
With a kaftan in her hands
She comes walking up the stairs
She's tap-tap-tapping on my door

And she'll make those tears to know that it's a must
But I go blind and my bones start to rust

I wanna build her up
Up as tall as a church
Just to watch her
Just to watch her falling down
I can't see her again
I just can't see her again
I've got to see her again
I've got to see her again

    General CommentI think he sings of all the peculiar things that made this girl so special and why he liked her so much. She was in his life so quickly, but gone so soon, and he never got to actually fall in love with her, or experience anything so... real with her, even though he knew that they could have had something. That's what I think.
