I broke your doll
It's cross eyed, that's all
I wanted to help it see straight

A half broken moon
Sooner than soon
I was up on your wall
Smaller than small

In a half painted frame
The wood wouldn't stain
I hope that reminds you
Of the part you couldn't change in me

So push me, I'll fall
If you pull me, I'll drown
If you're gonna be nailin' me down
I won't rise again

I scratched your car
Where a bird left a stain
I only wanted to help you see straight

A half broken moon
Sooner than soon
I was up on your wall
Smaller than small

In a half painted frame
Where the wood wouldn't stain
I hope that reminds you
Of the part you couldn't change in me

So push me, I'll fall
If you pull me, I'll drown
If you're gonna be nailin' me down
I won't rise again, I won't rise again

I'm not God, I'm not God
Oh, I'm not God, I'm not God
I might love you but I'm not God
