Ribbon Road lyrics

Baby Baby

Tells of a mother losing a baby in a cot death what it feels like and how it changes everything irrevocably, even when other babies arrive later on.

Baby Baby

Baby baby, baby baby,
crying in the night
Baby baby, baby baby,
Holding on too tight
And in the morning I found you gone
Without a warning, without a song
Oh what to do now, there is no way
Nothing to do now, you've gone away

Baby baby, baby baby,
Staring at the sky
Baby baby, baby baby,
You and me have died
The ground has shifted, no going back
And empty-handed, it all went black
Oh what to do now, an empty pram
Nothing to do now, it's who I am

Baby baby, baby baby,
Just can't put it right
Baby baby, baby baby,
Leaving in the night
And in the morning I feel the pain
And every morning I let it rain
'cos without warning, out of the blue
My arms remember the feel of you

Baby baby, baby baby,
Silent in the night
Baby baby, baby baby,
Holding onto life
And in the morning, will you be there
Every morning I'm running scared
Oh what to do now, there is no way
Nothing to do now, you've gone away
