Track Name: Be Here Baby
Falling down out of the sky
that’s how you came to me
I know enough to not ask why
you know anti-gravity.

You hold my body like you’ll
never let me go
But you got to know that

I’m not gonna stand in line
I’m not gonna pin you down
If you want me around, then
be here, baby.
I’m not gonna scream and shout
I’m not gonna beg and plead
If I am what you need, then
be here, baby be here.

Running hard and running fast
we didn’t have to think.
Now I want this thing to last,
so don’t turn away from the beautiful brink.

We toss and turn in our own
crazy undertow,
But you got to know that

I’m not gonna stand in line
I’m not gonna pin you down
If you want me around, then
be here, baby.
I’m not gonna scream and shout
I’m not gonna beg and plead
If I am what you need, then
be here, baby.

I saw a flash of a beautiful light.
And then suddenly, it’s out of sight.
Oh, you’re in my arms, then you’re running away.
Why don’t you stay?
Why don’t you stay?
Why don’t you stay?
Why don’t you stay?
Why don’t you stay?
Why don’t you stay?

Be here
Be here
Oh be here
Be here, baby
And now the balancing begins
Try not to hold me breath.
I feel the needles and the pins
but looking down is certain death.
You take my hand, we fly away.
Don’t let me go
I want you so

I’m not gonna, I’m not gonna,
I’m not gonna stand in line
I’m not gonna, I’m not gonna,
I’m not gonna pin you down
I’m not gonna beg and plead
I’m not gonna scream and shout.
Be here, be here
Just be here baby
Be here, be here
Oh baby be here.
