Paper Doll Girl

Too bright
I’m burnt out from no end in sight
I wanna say
That I wanna be here but I’ve gotta to go
Maybe
By the time I’m a thousand miles away
You’ll figure out what you could’ve done
To get me to stay

For so long, you left me waiting here
And so many times
Now it’s my turn to disappear, can ya hear me?

Why did we have to be like a front of a tabloid magazine
Why did you have to keep tryin to make me into something
That I couldn’t be
You only cut me down to size, all you did for me was critisize
Did you think you’d just give me a whirl
I’m not gonna be your paper doll girl

You’re too gone
I lost you somewhere along the way
I’m so worn through that I can’t feel skin
Remember
I used to dream of New Orleans, yeah
But the edge of town is as far as you would let me see

Three years,
You left me waiting here
And so many times now it’s my turn to disappear, can ya hear me?

Why did we have to be like a front of a tabloid magazine
Why did you have to keep tryin to make me into something
That I couldn’t be
You only cut me down to size, all you did for me was criticize
Did you think you’d just give me a whirl
I’m not gonna be your paper doll girl

I finally saw what I could never see…
That you were never really a part of me

Why did we have to be like a front of a tabloid magazine
Why did you have to keep tryin to make me into something
That I couldn’t be
You only cut me down to size, all you did for me was criticize
Did you think you’d just give me a whirl
I’m not gonna be your paper doll girl
