"Baby" as written by Inara George and Greg Kurstin....
You broke some bones when we were young
I can remember how you moaned
So I carried you home like a baby

You were thirteen and I was twelve
I can remember how it felt
Wearing your broken body on like a lady

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
If ever you need me
Just call me, I'll carry you home
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
If ever you're broken
No reason to do it alone

We were both five, you started a fire
And for a moment, all was lost
But then the rain fell from the sky
It was magic

Couldn't believe how it came down
Puddles of water all around
But when the clouds were finally gone
It seemed tragic

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
If ever you need me
Just call me, I'll carry you home
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
If ever you're broken
No reason to do it alone

Baby, I know we've seen our share
Of hard times, you and me
But I want you to know that I will always
No matter what, come to you

Out of the mist or into the fire
Across the sea, the mountains, the desert
And if you need me, just call me
And I will carry you all the way home

Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
If ever you need me
Just call me, I'll carry you home
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
If ever you're broken
No reason to do it alone

    General Commentthis is such a sweet song! I think it's basically about maybe a best friend and they're saying that if they ever need them, they'll be right there.

    General Commenti took this song as being sarcastic-"like a baby/like a lady" sound insulting. She'll be there for him. Even if he's like a little girl. :)
    I might be biased, though, because the very beginning reminded me of my cousin, and how he broke his arm while climbing a fence with my brother. When my cousin finally convinced my bro. to get help, my brother didn't bother rushing, because any time my cousin has even the slightest issue, he screams bloody murder about it. So no one believed he was really injured, as crying was his typical reaction to anything from a toothache to, well, a broken arm. He has the reputation of being a crybaby.
    I'm sure you all care so very much. ;-)

    well, sarcastic or not, it's a nice song. The level of nice-ness is up for discussion, as far as i can tell. (lol)
