Benjah – Orphan lyrics

You don't know what it's like to lose all you love
Everything stripped away
One day it's all there, then it's all gone
My family was stripped away
Murdered before my eyes, still see the blood stains there
I'll never forget that day when they took away, took away my love

Chorus: Love, please give me grace to forgive all the men that did this
Even though I know they're guilty, oh
And no matter what they do, they take a blackened screen
They took all my love from me
Oh, save me! (From the pain and suffering)
Save me! (Take me far away from sin)
Save me! (From the pain and suffering)
Save me! (Take me far away from sin)

Bridge:

I've been trying to get away, I've been walking for days
I've been trying to get away, trying to get away, trying to get away from
Here

Verse 2:

I was an orphan on the streets, but not for too long
A couple adopted me
They were missionaries here
With a love like christ, they took me in as their own
Got used to X that love
Love I was hiding from
The days in the end is X
Now I live so free, live free from the past

Chorus

Bridge

Vamp:

(Hey)
We all need a family
(How you gonna pay for?)
Like you may have doubted me
We all need a family
(How you gonna pay for?)
Like you may have doubted me
Save me! (From the pain and suffering)
Save me! (Take me far away from sin)
Save me! (From the pain and suffering)
Save me! (Take me far away from sin)
