"Babe" as written by and Gary Barlow....
I come to your door to see you again,
But where you once stood was an old man instead
I asked where you'd be, he said she's moved, on you see
All I have is a number you'd better ask her not me
So I picked up the phone and dialed your number
Not sure to put it down or speak
Then a voice I once knew answered in a sweet voice
She said hello then paused before I began to speak

Babe I'm here again (I'm here again)
I tell you I'm here again (Babe)
Where have you been? (Where have you been)
Babe (Babe), I'm back again (I'm back again)
I tell you I'm back again (Babe)
Where have you been?

You held your voice well, there were tears I could tell
But where were you now, was you gonna tell me in time?
Just give me a town and I'll be straight down
I've got so much to tell you about where I have been
As I walk down your road, can't wait to be near you
I can't keep the feeling in inside (I, I, I can't keep it inside)
As I stand at your door you answered in a sweet voice
You said hello then pause before I begin to speak

Babe (Babe), I'm here again (I'm here again)
I tell you I'm here again (Babe)
Where have you been? (Where have you been)
Babe (Babe), I'm back again (I'm back again)
I tell you I'm back again (Babe)
Where have you been?

As I looked away, I saw a face behind you
A little boy stood at your door
And as I looked again I saw his face was shining
He had my eyes (My eyes), he had my smile (my smile)

Babe, I'm back again (I'm here again),
I'm back again (Babe)
Where have you been? (Where have you been)
Babe (Babe), please take me back (I'm back again)
Take me back (Babe)
Back here again
Babe, I'm back again (I'm here again),
Can't you see that I'm back again (Babe)
I'm here for you (Where have you been)
Babe (Babe), just me and you (I'm back again)
You and me (Babe)
Ooh

    General CommentI don't particularly like pop music, but this song will always make it onto my top ten list, even my top five actually. It such a beautiful song, with a beautiful story. People do not give Gary Barlow enough credit. He's such an amazing songwriter, one of the most talented of the last 25 years. And this is coming from a rock chick! Take That certainly were THE boyband of the nineties, and definately one of the best ever.

    (But I preferred them without that twat Robbie!)

    General CommentIT IS ABOUT A REUNION OF 2 LOVERS, WHO FOR SOME REASON WERE TORN APART, AND SEPERATED. AND THEN PERHAPS HE REALIZED THAT THEY SHOULD UNITE AGAIN - AND LIFE BRIGS HIM HOME, NOT TO HIS LOVER, BUT TO A "FAMILY" - HIS FAMILY, HIS SON, AND THE MOTHER OF HIS SON... VERY BEAUTIFUL LYRICS...

    General Commentthis is the most amazing song when you're hearing it live, in a sold-out stadium, with thousands of people equally as in awe as you are.

    the best experience of my life.

    My OpinionGorgeous song...It came out in 1994...But today everyone still knows the words 17 yrs later...It's incredible at their concerts to see the audience singing this note for note in unison...They still know the words after all this time...TT will leave behind a fantastic catalog of songs, and a well deserved legacy of being one of many greats in pop music history...Gaz is a fantastic songwriter/composer, and their harmonies are incredible...The "I" and "Babe" bit wow <33
