lyrics

You don't feel pain and love quite like the rest
You've come apart at both the seams across your chest
You've been played too hard and torn your dress
A lovely girl and such a beautiful hot mess

But there's no one else that loves you like I do, broken doll
Held together with old bubble gum and glue, broken doll
Plastic heart and sunken eyes and a missing shoe, broken doll
Matted hair, red painted lips, and bad tattoos, broken doll

You're not perfect like in magazines
But you got me pining, lost for words, and losing sleep
You're the kind of girl that makes them dream
You're the kind of girl that makes the boys weep

But there's no one else that loves you like I do, broken doll
Held together with old bubble gum and glue, broken doll
Plastic heart and sunken eyes and a missing shoe, broken doll
Matted hair, red painted lips, and bad tattoos, broken doll

You just looked so lonely and so sad
That I just had to take you down off your toy rack
I caressed your face and held your hands
And waited patiently for you to kiss me back

But there's no one else that loves you like I do, broken doll
Held together with old bubble gum and glue, broken doll
Plastic heart and sunken eyes and a missing shoe, broken doll
Matted hair, red painted lips, and bad tattoos, broken doll
