Ashley Monroe – Orphan lyrics
How does a sparrow know more than I?
When the mother is gone, it learns how to fly
With no direction, its wings in the wind
How does a bird know more than I?

How does the winter know to hold on
When it's scared of it's shadow and flowers are gone?
The leaves all lay sleepin', prayin' to hear spring-time songs
How does the winter know to hold on?

Nobody told me what I should do
When the world starts to rumble and shake under you
How does an orphan find its way home?
Reach out with no hand to hold
How do I make it alone?

What keeps a river runnin' that way?
Is it slave to the ocean, a wild runaway?
Does it shed a tear, all who have drowned in its wake?
What keeps a river runnin' that way?

Nobody told me what I should do
When the world starts to rumble and shake under you
How does an orphan find its way home?
Reach out with no hand to hold
How do I make it alone?

Nobody told me what I should do
When the world starts to rumble and shake under you
I am an orphan a long way from home
And I reach out with no hand to hold
How do I make it alone?

How does a sparrow know more than I?
When the mother is gone, it learns how to fly
