Once upon an orphanage
My life was a near tragic state
I longed to find a brighter place
Somewhere full of love and grace
I dream of fields with a cool ocean breeze
A home for my own family
When I got my wish I pinched myself
To make sure this home was real
They sent for a boy but then I was a girl
My dreaming had just let me down again
If I came as a queen with long ebony hair
Then maybe they'd feel I was worth it for them
I'm a good worker in spite of my talking
I've longed to belong here for all of my life
Don't send me away without seeing what I see
Everything I touch is full of delight
I'll do my best to not let you down
I can imagine a world full of joy
Just give me your hand and I'll teach you to hope
You'll find that I have something worthwhile
Just let me stay here and I'll love you forever
I promise a life full of smiles
