Tar Baby Lyrics

by Sade

Grandma came to see somethin' she could not believe
How could her girl be so naive?
Tar baby, tar baby told the secret she conceived

Oh, that big old smile of yours could turn the wind into a song
How could I have doubted, honey it's with me that you belong
Tar baby, tar baby I love you so, I love you

Like a brand new blade you cut into my life
Cut through two decades like a hot coal on ice
Tar baby, my tar baby it maybe was meant to be

When I look at you I can't believe my eyes
With your magic I think you just might charm the birds out of the skies
Tar baby, tar baby, tar baby came good out of grief

A golden thread inside of the web that I got caught in
Oh, it's a lover's revenge but out of the pain come the best things

You cut into my life, you cut into my life
(Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby don't you know that)
You cut into my life
(I love you)
You cut into my life

(La la la la la ooh)
You can turn the wind into a song
(La la la la la baby, baby, baby)
It's with me you belong
