Body Without A Soul In Me
Nice to meet you
Glad to have known you
Keeping me clean all the time
Keeping me alive for a lifetime.
You dress me with everything
Buying me expensive of anything
You even put make ups on me
Blowing, curling my hair to be me.
You always talk to me whenever you're blue
I can feel your tears as you hug me true
I listen to you when you remember me
Holding my body like a real person in me.
Each year you buy a cake for me
Like it's my birthday hailing in your shop
All other occasions with fervor you treat me
Like I'm your only honey in a coffee shop.
You told me you have a girlfriend one time
Loved her so much, more than me
Then she lied to you more than one time
You came back, repining, staring at me.
Many years I stayed with you
Because you wanted me to be with you
I know when you are mad
But I can avouch you're not that bad.
Sometimes you kick the shop door
Yelling, squealing louder than Dumbledore
I was shaking when I see you crying
I am broken too when I can't stop you sighing.
Everyday and night, morn 'til midnight
You come to say "hello" to me
And vanishes like magic behind my sight
Going out with your friends without me.
Denying I don't feel anything for you
Believing I'm just a fantasy of you
I dream of you when you're sleeping
Watching you in bed while I'm weeping.
You don't know how it feels like to be solid
Only in human form I look splendid
Then one day I was sold to your neighbor
Only to pay for the rent debtor.
I was displayed across the street
Fronting your spot where people used to shop and peep
I can see you everyday so discreet
Telling your friends I'm still yours to keep.
Realizing one night you still wanted me
Then you bought me back at a higher price
To you your neighbor returned all of me
And I thanked you for that, winning my heart again
Every morn and night, you always smile at me
Kissing me, hugging me like the old times
you watched over me
How can I return the love you're giving me?
I'm just a mannequin falling in love with you
with no real beating heart inside of me.
I'll die for you if you need me to
'coz I love you more than everything in me
How can I prove my love for you?
I am just a body without a soul in me.
