baby can i see you tonight lyrics – colin hay

i’m walking over yellow lawn
the day, it is still sleeping
yellow sun brings the dawn
mother earth is weeping
i kick off my sensible shoes
i clear away the table
i switch on the morning news
economy’s unstable
but it’s all gonna be all right
last time you said you might
baby, can i see you tonight?
i look up in the cloudless sky
we’re hardly even moving
this day’s just creeping by
and it’s not of my choosing
i wish i had a, a time machine
to move a little faster
i’d cut to the crucial scene
between before and after
everythin’ gonna be all right
last time you said you might
baby, can i see you tonight?
took a walk down by the wall
down by the harbor
there’s no wind blowing in my sail
makes it even harder
you whispered, “can i take it slow?”
i will if i am able
i can feel it head to toe
there’s no name or label
and everythin’ gonna be all right
last time you said you might
baby, can i see you tonight?
i don’t know just where you are
but i can use my imagination
it’s hard to say how deep i fell
it’s more than fascination
i gave up on across and down
i lost my concentration
i feel like a, a fallen king
before my abdication
but everythin’ gonna be all right
last time you said you might
baby, can i see you tonight?
can i see you tonight?
can i see you tonight or before?
i got a pretty clear day
