Hey babe

Hey babe,
it’s funny to bump into you here
after all this time.
It’s really lovely to see you,
you’re looking fine.
You’re looking fine.

What’s new?
What’s true?
I didn’t mean to hurt you, honey
I still don’t know what happened there
to me and you.

Hey babe,
I’m thinking of all the things we didn’t say.
Hey babe
are we OK?

I had a dream,
and you cried: “Don’t go, don’t go, don’t go…”
but you were the one who was leaving,
dreams are funny like that, you know.

Yeah: “Don’t go, don’t go,” you cried.
I put my arms around you
and felt your sweet breath.
“Don’t go, don’t go,” you cried.
And then you left.

Hey babe,
would you like some tea?
Hey babe,
would you like to be free?

Do you trust the unseen powers?
Do you have faith in what was entrusted to us?
Do you remember, we had a task together?
Do you still believe in love?
Do you still believe in love?

I still greet you every morning,
wherever we are in the world.
It’s the same sun we wake up to,
yeah, and the same boy and the same girl.

And I say a prayer for you every night,
and I say grace with every meal.
‘Cos we sit together at the same table, honey,
and you’re always included in the feast.

Hey babe,
try to think well of me,
hey babe,
good luck with everything.

Knights & Angels, Hey, babe
