"Red Headed Stepchild" as written by and Daniel David/perlman Murphy....
Hello darkness, come on in
Let me light a candle
Imaginations running
Hands start to tremble
Knows enough to know not to believe
What is real, and what it seems to be
Knows what's keeping him from being free
Right outside your door

Don't run away
Red headed stepchild
I can only promise you won't
Find your way back home

In another room there's laughing
Entertaining strangers
Wasn't there, don't breathe no more
But keeping out some angels
Laughed so much, he almost cried
Stranger offers him a ride
City blocks roll on by
Never coming back

Don't run away
Red headed stepchild
I can only promise you won't
Find your way back home

Tear your pictures off my wall
I hate to look at strangers
Then it's burn before warned
Keep me out of danger
Knows enough to know not to believe
What is real, and what it seems to be
Knows what's keeping him from being free
Right outside your door

Don't run away
Red headed stepchild
I can only promise you won't
Find your way back home

Find your way back home
