Sugarcane Lyrics

by Missy Higgins

Baby ballerina's hiding
Somewhere in the corner
Where the shadow wraps around her
And our torches cannot find her

She will stay there till the morning
Crawl behind us as we are yawning
And she will leave our games
To never be the same

So grow tall, sugarcane
Eat that soil, drink the rain
But know they'll chase you
If you play their little games
So run, run fast, sugarcane

You see my peep show booth is handy
There's a one way only mirror
So I can dance here with my hair down
But I don't see if you get bitter

And there's a button right beside me
If I happen to want a wall to hide me
If only the ballerina had one too

So grow tall, sugarcane
Eat that soil, drink the rain
But know they'll chase you
If you play their little games
So run, run fast, sugarcane

And she said, "Always be afraid"
Yes, she said, "Always be afraid"

So grow tall, sugarcane
Eat that soil, drink the rain
But know they'll chase you
If you play their little games
So run, run fast, sugarcane

Yeah, you'd better run, run fast, sugarcane
Yeah, you'd better run, run fast sugarcane
