Orphan Song

Orphan Song
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

This is just an orphan song
I don’t like to sing it anymore
But if I don’t who will
I wrote it late that Autumn
When you were tangled in my bed
I’d listen to you breathing
My shirts all smelled like you
My guitar rung out your name
And your smile moved mountains in me

Orphan songs are all about the losing
Orphan songs are all about the ache
Orphan songs wont let you forget
Orphan songs always take
They are only written for women like you
By fools like me

This is just an orphan song
Girls request it all the time
On nights the bar is quiet
They say it reminds them
Of someone tangled in their beds
I know there’s sometimes more there
Their eyes all tell stories
They can’t quite betray
And their smiles would break your heart

Orphan songs are all about the losing
Orphan songs are all about the ache
Orphan songs wont let you forget
Orphan songs always take
They are only written for women like you
By fools like me

And I would not unwrite a word
I would not unplay a note
That’s the thing about an orhpan song
It never lets go

Orphan songs are all about the losing
Orphan songs are all about the ache
Orphan songs wont let you forget
Orphan songs always take
They are only written for women like you
By fools like me
