"Someone's Daughter" as written by Ted Barnes, Beth Orton and Ali Friend....
I wanna sit and talk and laugh with you as the ends,
I wanna see your smiling face before the new begins,
You never know what it means to see the sunlight in your
Hair and dancing everywhere.

I wanna shout about it,
But I keep quiet about it,
I wanna laugh about it,
But I don't joke about,
Wanna live without it,
But I can't do without it.

I'm someone's daughter,
An' your somebody's son,
Can I ease your pain 'til the morning comes,
I'm no one's daughter
I belong to the sun,
Gonna ease your pain 'til the morning comes.

Keep looking for the reason high and low to let it go,
Keep losing my mind looking for the peace that I'll never
Find, I wanna know what it feels like to be the sunlight in
Your hair and dancing everywhere.

I wanna shout about it,
But I keep quiet about it,
I wanna laugh about it,
But I don't joke about,
Wanna live without it,
But I can't do without it.

I'm someone's daughter,
An' your somebody's son,
Can I ease your pain 'til the morning comes,
I'm no one's daughter
I belong to the sun,
Gonna ease your pain 'til the morning comes

    General CommentBeth Orton's father left her mother when Beth was 11, he died shortly after. Beth lost her mother to cancer when she was 18. She tavelled to Thailand and lived with Buhddist Nuns. She often refrences the sun in her songs. Sun is a symbol for great love and spirit (God). She longs for her mum and dad and their love and nurturance.
