Here is a start. I'm not too comfortable with the "donning your colors" line and "shadows left in your bed". Any clarification would be welcome.

LITTLE LOST CHILD by Tom Paxton (How Come The Sun)

Little lost child in a room full of strangers,
Home is behind you and dead any way.
Night dreams have led you across North America
Looking of fiddlers you don't have to pay.
Known in your home town for freedom and style,
Envied by those who bow down to the mill
You wonder now how you ever could smile,
You wonder now if they envy you still.

CH: But don't you worry,
Little lost child you did what you had to do;
Don't you worry,
You're gonna be fine, child, gonna come through,
I know that you're gonna come through.

Little lost child on a street full of danger,
Filling your eyes with the tears of lost dreams
. Donning your colors in hopes of a new hope,
You feel yourself coming apart at the seems.
Now don't you look back while you're feeling the pain,
What you knew then was the peace of the dead,
Little lost child you can't go home again,
Gone is the shadow it's left in your bed.
