Baby Center Stage

Baby Center Stage

Iron & Wine

Mama called you baby center stage,
She could really run her mouth.
Baton Rouge called you petit angel
And Birmingham had run you out.

Doesn’t anybody see how scared you are?
There was a time I was running you down
But the world kept spinning round
Doesn’t anybody see how scared you are?
There was a time when you were running to me
But the lightning spared the tall tree

When your moon lights up the riverside
Making mud and bad blood
You can call me anytime
For all it’s worth, Louisiana’s still not enough.

In your restless days
I got lost, I got saved
In your restless nights
I swam blind
Somehow falling into the light

Doesn’t anybody see how scared you are?
There was a time I was running you down
But the world kept spinning round
Doesn’t anybody see how scared you are?
There was a time when you were running to me
But the hurricane had mercy

In your restless days
All that wind, all those waves
In your restless nights
We closed our eyes
Killed each other and came to life

In your restless days
I made my bed, I dug my grave
In your restless nights
We both swam blind
Somehow falling into the light
