"Baby Says" as written by and James Hince Alison Mosshart....
Baby says she's dying to meet you
Take you off and make your blood hum
And tremble like the fairground lights

And baby says if ever you see skin as fair
Or eyes as deep and as black as mine
I'll know you're lying

Baby says a howl of romance I'll get
From all your sleeping dogs, you thugs of God
I'll get one yet

Baby says for all I've forsaken
Make something of all the noise
And the mess you're making
And all the time's it's taken

Baby says there's death in these silver curls
That break up in jails
Send you diving for pearls
Without a care in the world

Baby says she's dying to meet you
Take you off and make your blood hum
And tremble like the Crimbal Lights

Baby says a howl of romance I'll get
From all your sleeping dogs, you thugs of God
I'll get one yet

    General CommentI <3 this...one of the best by the kills. Blood pressures is amazing, all in all.
    favorite lines:
    "Baby says if ever you see skin as fair, or eyes as deep and as black as mine, I'll know you're lying"

    "Baby says for all I've forsaken make something of all the noise and the mess you're making. And all the time's it's taken"

    but most of all:
    "Baby says there's death in these silver curls, that break up in jails, send you diving for pearls without a care in the world"

    ^ ingenious.

    General CommentI don't really get it. It's probably about a promiscuous girl who's addicted to a guy and she's trying her best to deliver him.
    But it seems more like just a sex song and the video is kind of fetish-minded also...

    My InterpretationI don't know if I actually believe this myself, but it could be a honeytrap. A suspicious girlfriend calls 'Baby' to find out if her man is cheating on her.

    My Interpretationlove the song and the kills and finally the song is about a girl with a sex addiction.

    Song Meaning"Baby" is a woman who has been exploited sexually by men with more social power than herself. She is vowing to get something that she values out of the transaction. "A howl of romance" is not all that she wants. She wants all that would come with it. The thing that makes this song so striking is that the words that "Baby" says paints a picture of hopelessness. She is dying to meet "me" and I am given snippets of information that tell me that she is dangerous and desperate and that she has already projected attributes onto me that I may not agree with. She reminds me a bit of Alabama from True Romance. She got her 'howl of romance" but things didn't go too well after that.

    Song Factjamie hince said that this song was for his wife in a 2013 new york concert. its obviously just a love song and should be understood in such context.
