lyrics

I wish I could see what lies behind those big brown eyes
and understand those whines and groans that contradict your size
But all that I can do is call your name and speak in tongues,
I’m speaking in tongues

Ten years passing, all amassing pictures in my head
All those days of pacing forward, I followed where you led
And all I ever did was call your name

So get along, little baby, don’t pretend that it’s not true
Because everyone I know plus me will soon follow you
All I ask is you remember us when you’re in your new home
And don’t be a stranger when you go off on your own

Different spouses, several houses, you still stayed the same
Messes made and insults thrown, you acted without shame
and walked around like everything was yours, because it was
because it was

Now in your old age, your blacks and whites have faded gray
But somehow still your soul is new, and refuses to decay
and you still walk around like everything is yours

So get along, little baby, don’t pretend that it’s not true
Because everyone I know plus me will soon follow you
All I ask is you remember us when you’re in your new home
And don’t be a stranger when you go off on your own

When you leave, I must confess I’m not sure what we’ll do
For everything that’s happened, our only constant has been you
But I promise that we’ll always call your name

So get along, little baby, don’t pretend that it’s not true
Because everyone I know plus me will soon follow you
All I ask is you remember us when you’re in your new home
And don’t be a stranger
No, don’t be a stranger
No, please don’t be a stranger when you go off on your own
