  • Why do they leave me all by myself?
    Why do they use me and bring me down?
    Why do they hurt me, why do they leave me?
    Why doesn't anybody stick around?

    Why doesn't anyone stay here?
    Why do they leave me?
    Don't they realize I'm a porcelain doll
    Small, unsure, beautiful, breakable?

    If I sit here, waiting to be wanted
    Something good will pass me by
    Many people look through the windows
    But seldom do they ever look in my eyes

    Why doesn't anyone stay here?
    Why do they leave me?
    Don't they realize I'm a porcelain doll
    Fragile, helpless, unwanted, breakable

    They can't tell that I am sweet
    They can't tell I'm like a porcelain doll
    Beautiful and demure
    But played with one too many times

    Why am I not numb to this?
    Why can't I let it all outside my mind?
    Don't let me sit here collecting dust
    But please be careful, please be kind

    Why doesn't anyone stay here?
    Why do they leave me?
    Don't they realize I'm a porcelain doll
    Lost, alone, unsure, kind, demure, small
    Fragile, helpless, breakable, breakable
