Lyrics with Lauren: Valentine Edition

Hi everyone.

One more day(!!)

I am so seriously stoked about Valentine's Day I decided to post a very special song for you. If you have never heard The Fray (they sing that really catchy cable car song and how to save a life-two amazing songs that i think have both been in the top five), then you need to. Anyway, I digress. But their best song is a love song. And a really good love song. Maybe the best one I have ever heard.

here it is (click on the Title of this blog and you can hear it...DO THIS FOR FULL EFFECT, please.)

Look After You

If I don't say this now
I will surely break
As I'm leaving the one I want to take
Forgive the urgency but hurry up and wait
My heart has started to separate
Be my baby
Be my baby
I'll look after you
There now, steady love,
so few come and don't go
Will you won't you,
be the one I'll always know
When I'm losing my control,
the city spins around
You're the only one who knows
to slow it down
Be my baby
Be my Baby
I'll look after you
And I'll look after you
If ever there was a doubt
My love she leans into me
This most assuredly counts
She says most assuredly
Be my baby
I'll look after you
After You
Be my baby
It's always have and never hold
You've begun to feel like home
What's mine is yours to leave or take
What's mine is yours to make your own
Be my baby
I'll look after you

Live version has a cover of You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker at the version is my favorite.)
