I have spent so many years
In fancy lace and beaded gowns,
I have set my hair a hundred ways,
My face I paint it up and powder it down.

This body bares a telling tale,
They pinch my cheek and wish me well.
for all their patronizing smiles
This frame remains a prison cell.
They look at me and what they see
Is one more painted china doll.
A sweet and cuddled good do well,
A painted fan, a sweet treat and the parasol.

Inside of me there lives someone
Who could have been somebody's wife,
Who could have seen their children grow,
Who could have had a normal life,
Who could have easily loved a man
And felt his kisses deep and moist.

Instead i get this kiss of death
And in this i have no choice,
imagine walking down the aisle,
I'll never have that chance.
A wedding dress of virgin white
The very best from France.
A cottage in the country,
The pleasures of romance,
Sunlight laying on my skin.
I'll never have that chance.
So no, I'll never have that chance...

They glide around society's swans,
With slim long necks and perfect breasts,
While i remain the frozen child,
A baby bird without the wings to leave her nest.

This body bares a telling tale,
They pinch my cheek and wish me wellFfor all their patronizing smiles
this frame remains a prison cell.
The mirror with its cruel laugh
Reflects this ageless face of mine
In taunting ways as if to say
'Childhood is not something you can leave behind.'

Inside of me there lives someone
Who never felt a mother's love,
Who could have heard the bells on sunday,
Kneeling in the church of God,
Who would have loved a rainy day
And never had to feel the fire.
Instead I hunger for the vein
That holds the life force I desire.

Pleasures of fine wines and dining
I'll never have that chance
the taste of chocolate and champagne,
The very best from France,
The arching of a rainbow
And the way the colors dance.
The miracle of giving birth,
I'll never have that chance.

Imagine walking down the aisle,
I'll never have that chance,
A wedding dress of virgin white,
The very best from France.
A cottage in the country,
The pleasures of romance.
Sunlight laying on my skin,
I'll never have that chance.
I know
I'll never have that chance...
I'll never have that chance...
