Shook my head out of dreams reality's calling The early bird's been up all morning But I've got no notion of moving from where I am Though my legs won't move I feel disabled I'm on a shelf an article labeled Waiting for someone to fetch me from lost and found
I'm down no one to hear me calling I'm down no one to see me falling
Had my ways with days of sunshine Life came easy it all fell in line But then again I didn't realize When you're used to one thing it's hard to accept Another like the woman who brought you up She ain't your mother How do you cope with a thing like that
I'm down no one to hear me calling...
Always thought it was my dad who went to war Thought it was my sister who fell off the wall My pseudo brother Billy emigrated long ago Someone went through' pain to have me Someone should know I'm down
Folks who brought me up I'm not ungrateful Kept the secret from me they thought it was shameful It hurt me so to be the last one to know Maybe someone's out there looking for me Left on their own couldn't afford to clothe me And I I don't even know my real name
