Orphans

by Deacon Blue

Deacon Blue are a Scottish pop band formed in Glasgow during 1985. Their name was taken from the title of the Steely Dan song "Deacon Blues". The current line-up of the band consists of vocalists Ricky Ross and Lorraine McIntosh, keyboard player James Prime and drummer Dougie Vipond.




I now describe my country
As if to strangers
This train is full of songs
Of local winners

And the wind surrounds the towers
And the flags they are blowing
And the bunting and the distance
Stretches over our sound

And when he teases the children
He calls them orphans
And he cries for all the flowers
Of the forest

In his head there is no reason
To be sad about the garden
But his heart bleeds very often
For things forgotten like little orphans
