"Tiny Alien" as written by Guy Chambers and Katie Melua....
I put my heart in a red balloon
But I let it go to soon
Let it go on the boulevard
Where wicked winds blow so hard

Maybe had I looked up I would have seen that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift
Into arms
Will they burst or drift
Into arms

I put my voice in a red balloon
For you it sang too many tunes
Haunted by those melodies
I let it go with the breeze

Maybe had I looked up I would have seen that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift
Into arms
Will they burst or drift
Into arms

I put my eyes in a red balloon
To watch you with the light of the moon,
But seeing you holding hands
With another girl and making plans
Well I just had to set you free
And finally see, that

The sky is full of red balloons
Red balloons are full of broken hearts
Broken hearts are floating by a chance
Will they burst or drift
Into arms,
Will they burst or drift
Into arms

    General CommentI can't helpo thinking that she is pregnant.. And it is very early and she is guessing from the featus "who are you?" But I don't know, I'm not sure if it fits perfectly, but I think it could be kind a cute.. My heart just breaks when I think about the tine alien baby.... :DD

    General CommentSeems pretty apparent she's talking about a new (or newborn) baby before it develops, shall we say, more human traits like talking, walking, etc.
