Orphan Eyes

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album Circa (2007).

Poor kid's wounds opening up under a big sky town
You got air to breathe and space to fall down
The wind has a voice you came to adore
Yeah and about that wound I'm to blame for
And it costs so much
It costs so much
To keep it all hid
You're wide awake with your orphan eyes
Blinking wondrous in the autumn light
That passes right through
You're standing by a barbed wire fence
At the scene of the accident
And your skies were cobalt blue
The road was a bandit and the highway was a thief
You build your home in monochrome with stereo grief
Faith she's a woman and to her I am bound
Honey I'll treat you real good considering what I drag around
Yeah and it was nearing Christmas when you bade it all goodbye
I know those emptiness songs seem to love the bigger skies
It's a far cry from the backyard of laughter and cartoons
To a winter that glazes everything under the mirror ball moon
