"Baby" as written by Deborah Lurie and Erran Baron Cohen....
You keep
your love
just out of reach
I can almost taste it
I can almost taste it.

I know
that if I touch It'll make
you feel weak
I think you can take it.

oh hh ah

What has this all done to you?
Little hands layin' heavy, tryin' to cover up the truth.

oh hm

I just wanna,
I just wanna love you.
I didn't want all this trouble,
I just wanna be your baby sometimes too.

um um

When the light hits you just right,
when the light hits you just right,
when the light hits you just right.
I forget everything baby, but you can't be mine.
I forget, I forget, I forget, I forget...

Let's see who's coming out tonight
all the pretty boys and girls
dancing under the silver moon
purple eyes and silver moon
purple eyes.

    General CommentShe's in love with someone whose love is unobtainable. He might be in love with her too but is too hesitant to admit it. She is so close to him, yet so far. It might be worth it at this point to continue pursuing his love because she feels like she almost has him so she will just keep it the way it is and enjoy being in love with him. It's hard for her to believe he doesn't feel it too when she feels this strongly for him.

    Song MeaningIt´s about loving someone whose ability to let love happen and to open up to it completely is more than slightly affected by childhood trauma.
