Broken Doll

V1:

Always kept me on the shelf

what a never-ending hell

can I cope with all the stress?

Everyday I’m so depressed

 

V2:

I’m an orphan with no home

Wore the corset that I own

I’ve been such a mess

Can you see the sutures running down my chest?

 

Chorus:

If I fell apart, would you pick up the pieces?

Would you take my heart if it ripped from the seams?

All I wanted was a promise 

Yet you never seemed to feel this

Its the reason I lie awake at night with all the pain

If I cracked a smile would you smile with me?

Tell me everything will be okay?

All I wanted was a promise

Yet you never seemed to feel this

So darling, would you take me away?

 

V3:

I used to see the world as light

innocent from things I’ll never know

colors change to charcoal black

never knew I’d ever steep so low

 

V4:

Days are fading through the night

Only I may not make tomorrow

See, I am just a broken doll

Shattered by my hopes and sorrow

 

Chorus:

If I fell apart, would you pick up the pieces?

Would you take my heart if it ripped from the seams?

All I wanted was a promise 

Yet you never seemed to feel this

Its the reason I lie awake at night with all the pain

If I cracked a smile would you smile with me?

Tell me everything will be okay?

All I wanted was a promise

Yet you never seemed to feel this

So darling, would you take me away?

 

Bridge:

Little toys and little lights

gleam and glisten through the night

you’re far from dents, wipe off the rust

I know you’re tense, so look for trust

As the bells are ringing clear

You think you’ve reached the breaking point

but there is so much more than this

you need the medicine to fix you again…

 

*solo*

 

…so I’ll heal your scars tonight

 

Chorus:

If I fell apart, would you pick up the pieces?

Would you take my heart if it ripped from the seams?

All I wanted was a promise 

Yet you never seemed to feel this

Its the reason I lie awake at night with all the pain

If I cracked a smile would you smile with me?

Tell me everything will be okay?

All I wanted was a promise

Yet you never seemed to feel this

So darling, would you take me away?

 

Spoken:

(Take me away, feel my embrace, you’ve locked the door, I’ve never seen your face)

(Through it all, I will not fall, I’ll just stand tall, and try to catch me)

 

Outro:

If I fell apart, I know you’d  pick up the pieces

I know you’d take my heart if it ripped from the seams

All I wanted was a promise 

Yet you never had to feel this

Its the reason I lie awake at night with all the strength

If I cracked a smile you’d smile with me

I know everything will be okay

All I wanted was a promise

and you always seemed to feel this

So darling, I can glue myself together

Just know I’ll do fine on my own
