Writing music that is organic, rich in imagery and storytelling and so attuned to their emotions, Wild Orphan touts a polished sound, each instrument and voice fitting beautifully into a lyrical puzzle. ... more

Track Name: Wind and Oak (LIVE!)
You said that I'm like the wind that flew
and you're the Oak tree whose leaves
I blew
I'd slow down if I knew how to,
but I've never been as grounded
as you

My Oak tree, with time you grew
friends with the ground your roots
stretch through
I could learn from your point of view,
but I'm the wind, so I'll bid you
adieu

You will never leave,
and I will always go

You say I'm strong, and that's not untrue
but I've got no guidance to
turn to
No ground to dig my roots into
If I'm the wind, did I blow it
with you?

'Cause if I've got nothing to lose,
I will go to Kashmir and Jammu
Voy a viajar a Peru
You say I'm strong, but I feel like
I withdrew

You will never leave,
and I will always go

I'll apologize to you
We should live how we each
aim to
That's the way that is tried and true,
and I will learn how to make do
without you

You will never leave,
and I will always go
Track Name: Tomorrow (LIVE!)
My TV sits black and decorates the subdued;
I'm not afraid of the answer,
but I don't want to lose the truth

I will tell my God that I may have lost my mind,
but it's important sometimes
to have a madness inside

You, oh oh
Will I be here tomorrow?
Will I be here tomorrow?

I met the Queen of England and all her Parliament
She fed me off of silver plates,
but I knew not what it meant

She wanted to get out of here, but then she saw my face.
I said, "You're running just to escape fear.
Each place is only space."

You, oh oh
Will I be here tomorrow?
Will I be here tomorrow?

Now it's just me and my Faith, with the crossroads in the distance;
I don't speak the language,
and the street signs are twisted

Everything I've ever loved has gone with the tide
but the waves still return to shore
when they're rejected each time

You, oh oh
Will I be here tomorrow?
Will I be here tomorrow?
Track Name: Come For You, Love (demo)
You have never been
more than a dream
and now I find
I can't sleep

Toss your pretty words
and go inside
you're gonna' make it
on your own time

Oh, I will come for you, love
Oh, I will rise
Oh, I will come for you, love
Oh, I will rise

I have never known
what to believe
when I get lost
I just leave

If you see the darkness,
take the light
but you've got to
give it back sometimes

Oh, I will come for you, love
Oh, I will rise
Oh, I will come for you, love
Oh, I will rise

You have never been
more than a dream
and now I find
I can't sleep

Toss your pretty words
and go inside
you're gonna' make it
on your own time

Oh, I will come for you, love
Oh, I will rise
Oh, I will come for you, love
Oh, I will rise
