I had something, it fell from me
Something strong
Like a pounding drum, like ringing bells
When I was young
I had something and it was gone

I had something made me walk all night
Made me run from home, made me fight
I had something
Made me feel alone
Like an orphan waiting for a home

Chorus:
Every footstep that I take
Completes the circle my life makes
Every living thing has ties that bind
What I lost returns with love and time

I heard something, it called to me
And it told me I was saved
Not by God
And not by words
Not by any living thing

It was the voice that I once knew
Of my daughter or my son
Not yet born
And not yet known
Another orphan waiting for a home

(chorus)
