Mannequin

Album: One of the Boys (2008)
  • How do I get closer to you
    When you keep it all on mute
    How will I know the right way to love you

    Usually the Queen of figurin' out
    Breaking down a man is no work out
    But I have no clue
    How to get through to you

    I wanna hit you just to see if you cry
    I keep knockin' on wood, hopin' there's a real boy inside

    But you're not a man
    You're just a Mannequin
    I wish you could feel that my love is real
    But you're not a man

    I wish I could just turn you on
    Put a battery in and make you talk
    Even pull a string for you to say anything

    But with you there is no guarantee
    Only expired warranty
    A bunch of broken parts
    And I can't seem to find your heart

    I'm such a fool
    I'm such a fool
    I'm such a fool
    This one's outta my hands
    I can't put you back together again

    Cause you're not a man
    You're just a Mannequin
    I wish you could feel that my love is real
    But you're not a man
    You're just a, a toy
    Could you ever be a real, real boy
    And understand
    But you're not a man

    If the past is the problem
    Our future can solve them baby
    I could bring you life if you let me inside baby
    It'll hurt but in the end you'll be a man

    Cause you're not a man
    You're just a Mannequin
    I wish you could feel that my love is real
    But you're not a man
    You're just a, a toy
    Could you ever be a real, real boy
    And understand
    But you're not a man

    Cause you're not a man
    You're just a Mannequin
    I wish you could feel that my love is real
    But you're not a man Writer/s: KATY PERRY
