lyrics

PAPER DOLLS

Beaten by the world, shattered in the wind
Just like a wounded bird with broken paper wings
And though she cries alone with no-one there to see
There are many like her, just like you and me

Chorus
Paper dolls, holding hands
Hang together, try to stand
Paper dolls do not cry
Hang together, stay alive

Crushed in smothered dreams, pushed beyond believing
Smashed to smithereens, someone always leaving
Always to be trusted, always to be kind
She never was forgiven, never was so blind

Chorus
Paper dolls, holding hands
Hang together, try to stand
Paper dolls do not cry
Hang together, stay alive

Blown away on beaches, stretched within her mind
Pulled by pretty speeches till the next time
Hiding in the bruises that never leave a mark
Wishing she could lose it and stay there in the dark

Bitten by the words, ruined by the meaning
Every time it hurts, with every ruined feeling
And though she cries alone with no-one there to see
There are many like her, just like you and me

Chorus
Paper dolls, holding hands
Hang together, try to stand
Paper dolls do not cry
Hang together, stay alive
