"China Girl" as written by Tanya Elizabeth Boniface, Susan Helen Furlonger, Carolyn Julia Owlett, Tisha Monique Martin, Fitzgerald Scott and Brion James....
How do you find a place to sleep
When there's nowhere to go
Life must be a living hell to you
Only time will show

There with no clothes or food to eat
So filled with shame
Each tear that sits upon your face
I know them by name

When will you stop to hear that voice inside
That you tried to hide
No one can save you but you

China girl
Hope you find your way home
'Cause my heart is beating
Waiting for your safe return

China girl
Everybody loves you
All those hearts are breaking
It's not the same since you've been gone

Each night you feel the need to hold
Someone you don't know
To replace the emptiness inside
Start heading home

You're place was never on the street
You ignored your call
Did you know that pride was in the way
Before you'd fall

When will you stop to hear that voice inside
That you tried to hide
No one can save you but you

China girl
Hope you find your way home
'Cause my heart is beating
Waiting for your safe return

China girl
Everybody loves you
All those hearts are breaking
It's not the same since you've been gone

I'm asking you if I could find
Just where you had to sleep tonight
I wonder did you eat today
Did you get on your knees and pray?

To free you from this misery
That's not how life's supposed to be
No need for you to carry shame
There's no one person here to blame

China girl
Hope you find your way home
'Cause my heart is beating
Waiting for your safe return

China girl
Everybody loves you
All those hearts are breaking
It's not the same since you've been gone

China girl
Hope you find your way home
'Cause my heart is beating
Waiting for your safe return

China girl
Everybody loves you
All those hearts are breaking
It's not the same since you've been gone
