lyrics

The old orphans who never fully blossomed
They yearn and they hurt and they crave
That blind kind of loving that seems so very wholesome
They pine and they ache until they cave

No matter how long the road
No matter how heavy the load
And if I got no one to watch over me
I’m standing proud and bold
All the fairy tales I was never told
Won't keep me from the place where I’m free

The old orphans who try to build a kingdom
They just go all in and they pray
If luck is a lady, the game is just a zero sum
The dolls and the guys still get to play

No matter how dark the moon
No matter how sandy the dune
I’ll keep on walking alone in the night
Don’t count me out so soon
Keep your lullabies and your silver spoon
I’ll show you how to stay in a fight

No matter how long the road
No matter how heavy the load
And if I got no one to watch over me
I’m standing proud and bold
All the fairy tales I was never told
Won't keep me from the place where I’m free

The old orphans who find enough wisdom
To grab all the hands on their way
They no longer march to the beat of their broken drum
And leave behind their skies of grey
