My Baby Was Black

Stacey Davies

Babe where are you
Don´t go away now
Open your eyes that were the Sun, and come back to me
Don’t keep me waiting
Don’t keep your eyes closed now, and go six feet under
Away from me
But I know it’s too late, you already been taken away from me
By injustice and this cruel world around us
Tell my why!
What gives you the right
To take what isn’t yours
Because of the wrong discord you had with him
And his beautiful skin
My baby was black
And you took the gun and killed one of God’s sons
You didn’t even look back
You only looked at him with hostile eyes
You didn’t care about the life that was lost
Because he was black
I looked past his beautiful skin that you saw no beauty in
Why didn’t you try that then
Now all I have left are memories
That’s not enough for me
Every night I keep screaming babe where are you
Don´t go away now
Open your eyes that were the Sun, and come back to me
But I know he won’t be coming
