China Dolls

Album: Jubilee Road (2018)
  • Don't be so hard on yourself
    You gave it all you had
    It's something inside you
    Petrified you
    Try not to feel so bad

    Don't be so hard on yourself
    The game is cruel and tough
    You had a straight
    And a couple of aces
    But it wasn't quite enough

    That's the way it goes
    Some you win and some you don't
    Some you sing and hearts get broke
    Like china dolls, like china dolls
    Delicate and beautiful

    Look at their purple, look at their purple eyes
    Your stepfather's on the phone
    He wants to know if you're coming home
    He's sick of you always getting stoned
    With your china dolls
    And your china dolls
    Delicate and beautiful

    Don't be so hard on yourself
    We know that you tried
    Gave 'em some love
    And a couple of doves
    But they didn't wanna fly

    And that's the way it goes
    Some they fill your heart and soul
    Some they treat you so damn cold
    Like china dolls, like china dolls
    Delicate and beautiful

    Look at their devil, look at their devil eyes
    The police are on the phone
    They want to know if you're coming home
    God, I wish that your mother had never sold
    Those china dolls, those china dolls
    Delicate and beautiful
    Oh, your china dolls and your china dolls
    China doll, oh china dollsWriter/s: Tom Peter Odell
