Baby Can I See You Tonight?

( Colin Hay )

I’m walkin’ over yellow lawn
The day it is still sleeping
Yellow sun brings the dawn
Mother earth is weeping

I kick off my sensible shoes
I clear away the table
I switch on the morning news
Economy’s unstable

But it’s all goin’ to be all right
Last time you said you might
Baby can I see you tonight?

I look up in the cloudless sky
We’re hardly even moving
This day’s just creeping by and it’s
Not of my choosing

I wish I had a time machine
To move a little faster
Cut to the crucial scene between
Before and after

Everything goin’ to be all right
Last time you said you might
Baby can I see you tonight?

Took a walk down by the wall
Down by the harbour
There’s no wind blowin’ in my sail
Makes it even harder

You whispered can I take it slow?
I will if I am able
I can feel it head to toe
There’s no name or label

And everything goin’ to be all right
Last time you said you might
Baby can I see you tonight?

I don’t know just where you are
But I can use my imagination
It’s hard to say how deep I fell
It’s more than fascination

I give up on across and down
I lost my concentration
I feel like a fallen king
Before my abdication

But everything goin’ to be all right
Last time you said you might
Baby can I see you tonight?
