Track Name: Jamie
She was born in a little white room
in a little white room she was born
to a little white girl another little white girl came through
from a little pink womb to the word
and when she first saw light
her little eyes cried like when she first saw night
same thing
and her dad drank liquor
till his fear hung thicker than a fat man stick on a swing
mum's gone shopping
there's no stopping
the world when it gets inside
so very quickly she starts to see things how they wanted her to see
outside
its raining
but somehow she thinks its sunny
she giggles at the pain cos it isn't very funny
she cries for her mummy
mummy looks blank
mummy's brain's locked in the bank

Jamie ran away
it wasn't nothing but a lot of bravado
she said I havent seen nothing but the cover of the sun
i was just focusing on winning the lotto
jamie ran away
it wasn't like she had a whole lot to stay for
So sorry my darling
I wasn't prince charming
i just read about you in the paper

jamie went to school, a kid
and did things that the others did
with paint and clay and skipping rope
with faith and spite and hate and hope
the scope for self expression narrowed
six years old she's feeling harrowed
seven she's on meds the doctor
said that she was hyperactive
well no more
now she's pretty sore
every day's a bore
breathing air becomes a chore
going to school's like going to war
now she's ten
and bleeding lying
she wonders if she's dying
part of what she used to be's forgotten
life's so sickly sweet and rotten

just like she hadn't asked to be born
jamie's world collapsed
when daddy, dumb, got sent to prison
mummy, dumber, got sent with him
jamie's sent to foster so called care
to so called carers where
she's made to feel like dirt and filth
it magnifies her hurt and guilt
she sees TV, magazines
dayglo in her dreams
there's places where the bars aint all around
where she can find her calling how
dare they touch her, boys and girls
fifteen now she sees the world
for half of what it is and isn't
so she jumps and leaves her prison

Jamie ran away
it wasn't nothing but a lot of bravado
she said I havent seen nothing but the cover of the sun
i was just focusing on winning the lotto
jamie ran away
it wasn't like she had a whole lot to stay for
So sorry my darling
I wasn't prince charming
i just read about you in the paper

Alright
