"Sweet Baby" as written by Ashanti S. Douglas, Al L. Green, Irving Domingo Lorenzo and Marcus Vest....
Close your eyes, sweet baby
Now don't you cry
Everybody gets their heart broke
Sweet baby, sometime
So he left you for another fool
Yes, a fool
For lovin' him from the start
Ask yourself what's more important
Him or the broken pieces of your heart sweet baby
Stand tall, (tall)
Sweet baby, (baby)
Don't you fall
You ain't the only one gettin' beat down
It happens to us all
The road you chose to walk in this life (the road you choose 2 walk in this life)

Is one that leads into the next
So sweet baby, stand tall (sweet baby, stand tall)
Stand tall (sweet baby)
Sweet baby, hold your tears back now
Better days gonna come your way soon, oh yeah sweet baby
Someway, somehow

(sweet baby)

Sweet baby

Walk faster, sweet baby
Don't let those bad boys catch you now
Those things that they will have you do
You been done known better, oh, and how
How can you sleep knowing that you and a fool
Sing in the same key
Walk faster sweet baby (walk faster)
Strive to be the very best that you can be (strive) (sweet baby)
Sweet baby
Oh, sweet baby

Sweet baby, hold your tears back now
Better days gonna come your way soon
Oh yeah, sweet baby, someway, somehow

(Sweet baby)
Sweet baby

Better days gonna come your way, yeah

Sweet baby

    General CommentNot sure about the exact meaning
    but this sure is a song that always
    makes me cry.
    For me it has the same feel to it
    as: 'Sometimes it Snows in April'.
    Both songs touch me deep in my heart.
