Baby Boom Baby

This song is by James Taylor and appears on the album Never Die Young (1988).

Some how this season always brings a picture of you
Baby Boom Baby
Holding on for everything you figure your due
Little turtle neck girl
Moon on your shoulder
Wind in your lovely hair
Oh what a night
We sat on the beach
And watched as the sun rose into the summer air

You said we couldn't miss what we never knew
Something about something that you had to do
Sitting on the sand with a hole in my shoe

I had no way of knowing where you might have been
Time goes by
All on my own I imagined you a life in-between
All on my own

I worked on a letter but it never made it out of my head
Some how reading your name
It wasn't the same as leaving the thing unsaid

How come I miss what I never knew
And drag out the past just to paint it blue
Spend my days with a dream of you

Oh after a fall
Here I'm trying to find our name on the wall
It was neither yours nor mine
It was something of the two combined
From a time spent out of time

I work hard to see that you remember my name
Nod your head yes
Do all I can to make you want to see me again
Oh what a night
Got a letter from the mail
Got a message from the telephone

Seems your working in town
Moving around
And living alone

Now I'm caught in the spot light
Walking the wire
My feet are frozen and my hearts on fire
What do I do if my dream comes true
