Lyrics

Orphans Lullaby
Words and Music by Lisa Redfern

In a foreign orphanage
In Russia and Taiwan
In Haiti and Peru
Sits waiting little you

When you cry out in need
You have to rock yourself to sleep
They do the best they can
But there aren’t enough hands

Wish I could hold you tonight
And sing an orphans lullaby

Down in Guatemala
In Africa and China
As an orphan far away
You’re just waiting for your day

In dreams they come for you
You have a home of your own
You know you belong
When they sing you your song

Wish I could hold you tonight
And sing an orphans lullaby
