Scorn Not His Simplicity
by Sinéad O'Connor



See the child
With the golden hair
Yet eyes that show the emptiness inside
Do we know

Can we understand just how he feels
Or have we really tried
See him now
As he stands alone

And watches children play a children's game
Simple child
He looks almost like the others
Yet they know he's not the same

Scorn not his simplicity
But rather try to love him all the more
Scorn not his simplicity
Oh no

Oh no
See him stare
Not recognizing the kind face
That only yesterday he loved

The loving face
Of a mother who can't understand
What she's been guilty of
How she cried, tears of happiness

The day the doctor told her it's a boy
Now she cries tears of helplessness
And thinks of all the things he can't enjoy
Scorn not his simplicity

But rather try to love him all the more
Scorn not his simplicity
Oh no
Oh no

Only he knows how to face the future hopefully
Surrounded by despair
He won't ask for your pity or your sympathy
But surely you should care

Scorn not his simplicity
But rather try to love him all the more
Scorn not his simplicity
Oh no

Oh no
Oh no
