  • You light me up and then I fall for you
    You lay me down and then I call for you
    Stumbling on reasons that are far and few
    I'd let it all come down and then some for you

    Pretty baby, don't you leave me
    I have been saving smiles for you
    Pretty baby, why can't you see
    You're the one that I belong to?
    I'll be the embrace that keeps you warm
    For you're the sun that breaks the storm
    I'll be alright and I'll sleep sound
    As long as you keep coming 'round
    Oh pretty baby

    And I know things can't last forever
    But there are lessons that you'll never learn
    Oh just the scent of you it makes me hurt
    So how's it you that makes me better?

    Pretty baby, don't you leave me
    I have been saving smiles for you
    Pretty baby, why can't you see?
    You're the one that I belong to
    I'll be the embrace that keeps you warm
    For you're the sun that breaks the storm
    I'll be alright and I'll sleep sound
    As long as you keep coming

    Why can't you hold me and never let go?
    When you touch me it is me that you own
    Pretty baby
    Oh the place that you hold in my heart
    Would you break it apart again?
    Oh pretty baby

    Pretty baby, don't you leave me
    I have been saving smiles for you
    Pretty baby, why can't you see
    You're the one that I belong to?
    I'll be the embrace that keeps you warm
    For you're the sun that breaks the storm
    I'll be alright and I'll sleep sound
    As long as you keep coming 'round

    Pretty baby, why can't you see?
    Pretty baby, don't you leave me
    Pretty baby, why can't you see?
    Pretty baby, don't you leave me
    Pretty baby, my pretty baby
    My pretty baby, don't you leave
