lyrics

I like the way you love to be here
unblinking eyes so wide and so clear
no need for you to ever know fear
in this favored place filled with smiling faces

check out the way you work to break free
stretch out your arms
such activity
nothing you do will ever keep me
from holding on holding on
so tightly

not fair - that every mama doesn't have a baby like you
not fair - that every baby doesn't have a mama like you do
not fair - that every mama doesn't have a baby like you
not fair - that everybody doesn't have spare love

brave is the way you wake with a smile
let's keep this scene around for awhile
everyone falls in love with your style
how you open up all the shut tight places

gentle your fingers follow my skin
through day and night such dreams we move in
so soft your power to make the earth spin
and your story has only just begun

not fair - that every mama doesn't have a baby like you
not fair - that every baby doesn't have a mama like you do
not fair - that every mama doesn't have a baby like you
not fair - that everybody doesn't have spare love to chew on
