Porcelain Doll

I can't
I won't
Refuse to be your porcelain doll
Like I've been for... so long

You put me on this shelf
To collect dust
And you go as you please
Run off and play with your little friends

But not before you lock me away
Safe and sound in this tower
Then you run off with the key
You're such a tease

Well I've got news for you
I'm a person with feelings too and
I'm tired of collecting dust
I refuse to be the porcelain doll

Little sex toy that you want
With no mind of my own
No thoughts or opinions
Just waiting till I catch your eye

The most pathetic part is
I know just how to get your attention
It's so sad that the way to your heart
Is through my body

Worst kind of chauvinist
I know you say you love me
But darling they're just words
And I know in time, you'll miss me

And god knows it hurts
But I can't play pretend anymore
This fairytale is crashing down
Cause I'm tired of living a lie

You ask me if I'm happy...
What did you think I would say?
You abuse me so kindly
Every touch makes me think there's a chance

Maybe I'm foolish 
Maybe I'm stubborn
But I can't cry anymore
Make my tears worthwhile

If you only acted like I interested you
Maybe just a little
Maybe then things could change
We're on two different levels of love

I can't
I won't 
Refuse to be your porcelain doll
