Porcelain Doll: A Song

 

Written by Abby Berman

 

I was once a porcelain doll

Do you remember me when?

I was conceived of lace and pearls

Did you like me better then?

I remember when I understood…

I remember when I understood…

Only good

 

I once had a velvet rose

That smelt of joy

Given in the perfect world

By the perfect boy

I had diamonds in my ears

And hair of gold

A love for all to see

A dream for anyone to hold

I remember when I understood…

I remember when I understood…

Only good, only good, only good

Only good, only good, only good

 

Maybe I’m a little distracted

As I’m on my way home

Maybe I’ve overreacted

And that’s why I’m alone

And maybe, just maybe

I’m a little confused

Maybe my porcelain heart

Is just a little bit bruised

 

Hold me now

Just a little tonight

Just a little tonight

Make me feel alright

Hold me now just a little

A little tonight

Love me now

Just a little tonight

Just a little tonight

Make me feel alright

Love me now just a little

A little tonight

 

I was once a porcelain doll

Do you remember me when?

I was conceived of lace and pearls

You would have liked me better then

I remember when I understood…

I remember when I understood…

Only good

 

( This was a song I wrote quite a few years ago when I was a new adult having trouble with the idea of growing up. I was in this weird in-between place where I wanted to be taken seriously as a mature individual, and I wanted to experience new exciting adult things, but I was still mourning for an innocent childhood that was quickly floating away. It was such a hard and confusing time in my life. It’s been probably 10 years since I have written this song, but I felt like I needed to share it. It still makes me a little achy when I play it.)
