Joan Armatrading - Baby I Lyrics

Remember when you took me
Out last night
It was a clear night
The nearest moon
I'd ever seen
Filled the sky
Threw light on the city

Remember when you took me
To some party
With your arms around my waist
Planning my weekends
Maybe planning
To change my name
I'm in love
And I got to let you know

Baby I
Want to be
In your loving arms again
Baby I
Want to be
In your loving arms again
Feel you near to me
Baby, ah can't you see
So much
Romance in the air
And all I really want
Is to be with you

    What can you say about Joan except that she is a brilliant songwriter with a unique delivery that cuts right to the soul. Love it!

    Did you know that she's a Barrister.She studied British law while writing music and gave it up when her music took off.

  14. Jet Set

    Best love song ever- the lyrics blended with that sax and gentle strumming is absolutely ... well I haven’t the word to describe it: It is tear jerking, reminiscent,
    real, and forever!!

    Was in form 1 at St Mary Secondary ka Lobamba. My uncle came back from South Africa with this half album. Only one side had songs. Knew the lyrics of this song, such that I had to sing the song on the bus going to a Science Fair. Was the hit on the school bus.

  50. JusLiveMylyfe

    This song to me is amazing , the way she sings the chorus..."Baby I, I Wanna Be In Your Loving Arms Again,
    Baby I, I Wanna Be In Your Loving Arms Again,
    Feel You Near To Me, Babe I, Can't You See
    So, Much Romance, In The Air
    And, All I Want To Be Is With You"

  51. Alberto Truffi

    It's true, but she joined her parents in UK when she was eight and grew up musically there. Anyway she is a citizen of the world, but also always linked to her native land.

  52. Annabel Delisle

    She's not English. Shes from St Kitts, please!


    She grew up in Birmingham and lives in the Shetlands. So, Please! She's a Brit. :)

    Brenda Flowers
