Dressed up like the King,
New York Halloween.
I could barely see your face,
hardly even note a trace.

A couple months would pass,
snowfall melt to grass.
Finally I’d see you again,
wrapped around your new boyfriend

Baby, if you wanna then I think you oughta
Just let him float on down that stream.
I don’t know how to put picture to sound,
But I know you’ve got all that I need.

How I wish that you were my baby.

The yellow line uptown
used to bring me down.
Mighty how some things just change.
Blue sky wipes your mind of rain.

I’ve got this heart that has spent a good part
of its life in motels all alone,
Crashing on couches and cashing in vouchers,
just dying for a place to call home.

How I wish that you were my baby.

If you left today
Don’t know what I’d say
I would probably light my heart on fire cause
My world spun so scattered, still,
I know nothing mattered until
you were my baby.

And I could not let go
'Cause you might never know.
