Pigtail Pretty Baby
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
And would you mind if I would call you?
The black silver cup on my morning star
Or the slow pace of water dripping
Cause God, you're my waterfall, waterfall
The cold night, you are the warming
The black sky, you are the sun
I slow-danced with you and I don't even know
How to dance anymore, anymore

Chorus:
And with this breath I say, "I love you"
And with these chords I'll strum the earth
When I'm away, so far away
From you, my heart hurts
My candy-cane pigtailed pretty baby
A Lover's Lane stain rain on my shirt
When I'm away, so far away
From you, my heart hurts

The black dress sung goodbye
The night scenes, you close your eyes
You're so still in my hands
Are you falling anymore, anymore
So here we are in the morning
You stood still on the porch with a smile
I slow-danced with you, and I don't even know
How to dance anymore, anymore

Chorus:
And with this breath I say, "I love you"
And with these chords I'll strum the earth
When I'm away, so far away
From you, my heart hurts
My candy-cane pigtailed pretty baby
A Lover's Lane stain rain on my shirt
When I'm away, so far away
From you, my heart hurts

My, my

Chorus:
And with this breath I say, "I love you"
And with these chords I'll strum the earth
When I'm away, so far away
From you, my heart hurts
My candy-cane pigtailed pretty baby
A Lover's Lane stain rain on my shirt
When I'm away, so far away
From you, my heart hurts

My, my

There is a very old version of this song, entitled Whispers, on the Last Wish album First Of February.  The lyrics to that can be found
