Look at my mouth, a thin painted line
Look at my limbs, bent up and bundled in twine
Forever, ever mine
Form of a tree, shape of a child
I wish I could cry, stuck in a permanent smile
Forever, ever mine
Chorus:
I know you must have loved me sometime
B
Ut now I'm just a toy
I know you must have loved me sometime
But now I'm just a toy
First there was me, nothing but time
Till he came along, oyu told me you'd always be mine
Forever, ever mine
Look at his face, somewhat like mine
But look at his nose, you can always be sure he's lying
Forever, ever mine
(Chorus)
Who needs you
A boy-to-be who
Needs to be
Better than him, worthy of you
Given the chance that he had, I know what I'd do
Forever, ever mine
I call him liar, you call him son
If I could move, I'd set him on fire and I'd run
Forever
(Chorus)
