O Baby Lyrics Edit


♪♫O Baby Lyrics♫♪

The cracks in the ground grin up at me Even the creases in my shoes smile up at me Thought it would end in tragedy But I'm swimming around in your glory

O baby O maybe I'm the lost and found

Look at the stars they're raining down Even these jewels want to kiss your crown Don't be afraid it's just your face Has that effect on heavens' treasure case

O baby O maybe You're a paragon

I haven't felt this way before Impossible to ask for more Unanswered prayers that went before Lie like leaves upon the floor

Hang all the world and universe When I'm with you they always seem perverse I'm in a state of weightlessness When I inhale your angel breath

O baby O maybe I'm the lost and found
