Faith, Paloma - Broken Doll Lyrics

I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
I don't claim to be perfect
I know I'm damaged goods
But I wanna be led out of darkness just like every lady would
Lick my wounds and watch them seal with your healing heart
Embrace my sadness, look after me
Cause there's no one else I'd ask
I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
Piece me all together, though broken I am sweet
You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat
I'm scared of shadows in the night
When you're not there by my side
Sick of nightmares in my sleep
When there's no place I can hide
See the beauty in the blood that drips down from my eyes
Hold the parts that were ripped out
That took me by surprise
I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
Piece me all together though broken I am sweet
You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat
Boom boom Here it goes Boom boom
To the sound of the grand piano
I am dancing in your light
And I like it here
I'm a broken doll and you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
I'm broken doll you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
Piece me all together though broken I am sweet
You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat
I'm a broken doll you're the puppeteer
Take control for me and wipe away my fears
Piece me all together though broken I am sweet
You thought my heart was made of wood but I can hear it beat

  6. Jamis Ins

    Typical music murderer. An actress. Typical musician then! “Nobody knows where my Johnny has gone...It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to”. Wonder if she’s been sued. Should be. She does this with a lot of hers songs.

    The band kicked in fairly quick, she's amazing

    Why would 5 people dislike this!? She's singing live, and she's doing it just as good as in the studio, probably better showing that she doesn't depend on processed sounds, I'm not dissing artists that aren't good live, but I'm just saying she's amazing!
