Baby's World (4:55)

Cover of I Wish - Unreleased Demo Album

From I Wish - Unreleased Demo Album

Andre Barlow, wrote this song, 26 years ago, after the birth of his first child, Roxanne Storm.

The realisation of becoming a parent was a huge responsibility and it made him think about how vulnerable children are. They are born into the world with no guarantees, no promises and an unknown future.

Putting himself into the baby’s world, he tried to make the point, that we all have a responsibility to our children.

He did want a young voice to do the vocals, but that will still happen later down the line.

All instruments played on this track, performed by Andre, with Mike Woodland, his sound engineer on drums. Andre performing all vocals.

    So dark, It seems to me, floating in my world. Even though, I cannot see, it's warm, my body's curled. And I can hear the voices on the outside, It's so quiet here on the inside and I know it won't be long, Things will change, I'm growing strong. What will happen, when I'm out of here? Will this being, who carries me always be near? Silence in my padded cell, there's water all around. I cannot seem to move too well, by a chord, my body's bound, And I can hear the voices on the outside, it's so quiet on the inside, And I know it won't be long, things have changed and I've grown strong. What will happen, when I'm out of here? Will this being, who carries me always be near? I'm moving down, this narrow wall, there's pressure all around, Now what are all these lights I see, and what are all these sounds? And I can hear the voices from the inside! Strong arms hold me, I'm on the outside! And I know, I wasn't wrong, I am here and I belong.
