1. 10 Orphan

From the recording Singles Volume Two



I am just an orphan out here in the cold
walking down the road and feeling old
my daddy was a good man but now he is no more
my mama left a long time before

always knew this day would get here
unless I beat them out the door
mama... gave no warning
while daddy seemed he’d last forevermore

Emptiness that can’t be filled
it’s what it is,— will always be
real love can’t be killed
it lasts an eternity

now we are left all alone
no light to guide us through
our hearts sink like a stone
carry on is all we can do
