Vanessa Simmons
Funny kind of name
Young and yet wise
Only a child
Wake up in the morning
Frown across your face
I know your name
But not your place

Wish I could show you how to live your life
But I'm not sure which one of us is right
God only knows the tears I've cried

Vanessa Simmons
Funny kind of name
Have you got life wrong
Is it just a game?
Wake up in the morning
Find a friend at night
Friends are hard to find
Especially at night

Wish I could show you how to live your life
But I'm not sure which one of us is right
God only knows
And he's the one that shows the tears I've cried

And if I asked you for the sun would you not say
Light's not the only way to be?
And if I asked you for your love would you not say
Love is not what you want from me?
And would I not be right
To sit alone and wonder every night?

Funny kind of name
Young and yet wise
Only a child

Wish I could show you how to live your life
But I'm not sure which one of us is right
God only knows
And he's the one that shows the tears I've cried
