War Baby Lyrics

Only the very young and the very beautiful can be so
aloof
Hanging out with the boys, all swagger and poise
I don't even care what other people are there
I just stare and stare and stare

I see your shadow in the swimming pool
I see your face in the shaving mirror
Time and time and time again
I follow your footsteps so quietly up the backstairs
And I hope and I pray you're never going to find me
there

Smooth skin and tenderness long ago on a dark night
Wish I could see you once again just to remember it was
true
I want to be still beside you - quiet and still beside
you
Listening to your breathing and feeling your warmth
again

War baby - you were a
War baby - this means
War baby - I'm scared, so scared
Of whatever it is you keep putting me through

I don't think I could stand another ten years of this
fighting
All this stabbing and wounding - only getting my own
back
I don't want to batter you to your feet and knees and
elbows
When I'm kneeling like a candle at the foot of my own
bed

Corresponding disasters every night on the TV
Sickening reality keeps gripping me in its guts
All my friends talk and joke and laugh about Armageddon
But like a nightmare it's still waiting there at the
end of every day

War baby... etc.

I don't think I could stand another ten years of this
fighting
All this stabbing and wounding - only getting my own
back
But later that same evening we were out in the car
talking
When I suddenly wondered who the hell it was we were
trying to fool

Co you were the first one that I ever wanted

And it's you I come home to at the end of every day
Like a mother-sucking baby, demanding and so helpless
A little old balding man, all wrinkles and bulging eyes

War baby... etc.
