These are the lyrics for a song I wrote. There are a lot of metaphors and hidden meanings.
|Paper doll children holding hands
Float through the air,
Where will they land?
Clock-faced baby, dry your eyes
Soon you’ll be
China-doll princess, can’t you see?
You’re what so many others
Long to be.
And yet you stare with glassy eyes
Cruel painted smile
She cries alone in her room
Hidden in the gloom.
A tear trickles, turns to glass,
Smashes on the floor,
It won’t last.
Sparkling angel, can’t you see
What your love
Means to me?
Paper doll children torn apart,
Sparkling water flows beneath
Float downstream as petals drown.
I’ll let you in if you ask me twice,
But my friendship comes
At a price.
I’ll let you in if you play your part
And I’ll show you
The caverns of my heart.
