Baby, Sweetie, Honey

lyrics

Falling for the first time, I remember love
With a backpack full of big ideas and rainbow-coloured dreams
Falling for the first time, I remember love
So young and so naïve
I let him call me ‘honey’

Falling for the second time, I remember love
With a handful of heartbreak hoping he would fix it all
Falling for the second time, I remember love
A little older but still hopeful
I let him call me ‘sweetheart’

But the ‘baby, sweetie, honey’, well it fell away
And he started calling me by my first name again
And I was left to think about the woman I used to be
Before I became his ‘baby’

Falling for the third time, I remember love
With a suitcase full of sorrow and a cynical hat on top
Falling for the third time, I remember love
I thought I would be safer if I kept my walls up
But I let him call me ‘love’

<CHORUS>

Falling for the – who knows what – I have lost count
But you’re standing here before me and you make my heart pound
I know I’m a little bit crazy with all these silly rules
Please understand it’s just my fear of looking like a fool

‘Cause if the ‘baby, sweetie, honey’ was to fall away
And you started calling me by my first name again
I’d be left to think about the woman I used to be
Before I became your ‘baby’

about

Ange Takats Australia

One of the purest voices on the Australian music scene – Ange Takats is able to coat with sugar, crush with sadness and cut through to the soul of a song.

Her second album Arva mixes Americana folk with the sounds of 1930s jazz … think Joni Mitchell meets Billie Holiday with the Andrews Sisters on backing vocals. It was recorded and produced by J. Walker (Machine Translations).
