"When I Was An Orphan" as written by and Paul/bey Ritchie....
I can see your face,
Call it breakin' me alright,
Pretty soon your heart will be gone,

You can have the best of me,
I'll just take the rest of me,
Why are we going apart,

Rippin' out the guts,
Where there's somethin' to save,

Can you take more,
Take more,
All I've asked for,
Make sure,
I come,
After,

Passin' out your plastic that,
Couldn't care, couldn't care,
Tell your turn and back that,
I'll trade you for no one,
When I was an orphan and you were a crow,
I couldn't believe you were sayin' its so,
I held out my arms like love for such a laugh,

I follow forgiveness back to the sun,
If you and I were the only ones to stay,
Well how is it supposed to be now,

I can see the bones of indifference-its sickening-
Stickin' through the side of the fool I became,
Another photograph, to kiss me in the morning,
Now can I call you back? You don't treat me the same,

Can you fake more,
Fake more,
Childish laughter,
Can you make sure,
Make sure,
I come,
After,

Lipstick on the glass left to figure out, figure out,
Patch your pretty promise, it's the gift that you gave,
When you were a daughter and I was the sky,
I never remembered feelin' so bad,
You pulled my hair and I smashed your telephone,

You're set in your ways,
Now change for me,
And I said it so clear,
Still you didn't agree,
You just left it to chance,
As if suddenly its free and it failed,
How is it supposed to be now?

Starting a sentence is getting us nowhere,
Heart from the hope that you held in your hand,

Starting a sentence is getting us nowhere,
Heart from the hope that you held in your hand,

Can you take more,
Take more,
All I've asked for,
Make sure,
I come,
After,

Can you fake more,
Fake more,
Childish laughter,
Can you make sure,
Make sure,
I come,
After...
