porcelain doll lyrics – megan mccauley

why do they leave me all by myself?
why do they use me and bring me down?
why do they hurt me?
why do they leave me?
why doesn’t anybody stick around?

why doesn’t anyone stay here?
why do they leave me?
don’t they realize i’m a porcelain doll?
small, unsure, beautiful
breakable

if i sit here waiting to be wanted
something good will p*ss me by
many people look through the windows
but seldom do they ever look into my eyes

why doesn’t anyone stay here?
why do they leave me?
don’t they realize i’m a porcelain doll?
fragile, helpless, unwanted
breakable

they can’t tell that i am sweet
they can’t tell i’m like a porcelain doll
beautiful and demure
but they will lie to me

why am i not numb to this?
why can’t i let it all escape my mind?
don’t let me sit here collecting dust
but please be careful, please be kind

why doesn’t anyone stay here?
why do they leave me?
don’t they realize i’m a porcelain doll?
lost, alone, unsure
kind, demure, small
fragile, helpless
breakable
breakable
