They are all prettier than me
Their eyes like diamonds
Not a crack on their cheeks
The ones I played with
Their flawless skin
Never made me feel less
Their emerald eyes
Didn't make my stone eyes any less
I could see beyond that
Their beautiful souls
Is what I could see
Tell me boy
How you walked in
Chose them over me
And I could not see their souls
How the need to want you
Made me forget those years
I cherished with my dolls
How did you become
The only thing I wanted
