paper doll lyrics – rosie thomas

tonight i’m like a paper doll
dress me in what you wish i had on
and i will not say a thing
i will keep smiling
i’ll just keep smiling

here i am, wordless again
you dress me up different way
flat and thin, speechless within
you dress me up different ways
i just can’t be sure i’ll ever change

and i do not like the clothes i wear
i’d sooner throw them into the air
but i will not say a thing
i will just keep smiling

here i am, wordless again
you dress me up different way
flat and thin, speechless within
you dress me up different ways
i just can’t be sure i’ll ever change

why is it now
that you’ve cut me out
of everything i was used to now
it’s not that i
stand here no choice
i will choose not to raise up my voice

here i am, wordless again
wordless again.
and i just can’t be sure i’ll ever change

tonight i’m like a paper doll
cut from the page that i once lived on
and i will not say a thing
i’ll just keep smiling
i’ll just keep smiling
i’ll just keep smiling
i’ll just keep smiling
