Paper Doll

from Tilt by Brett Ryan Stewart

lyrics

paper doll who told you that you had it all?

what made you think you’d never fall

when your heaven was your sin

shiny one stars are falling from your hair

you’re stumbling down the castle stairs

the night is closing in

and that faded rose

there between your perfect teeth

like all of this beauty you see

it’s only in your mind

misery raining like a thousand drums

causing all the color to run

from your masterpiece

paper doll welcome to the beggar’s ball

are you ready for your curtain call

we’ve been waiting for you

slowly girl step here in to this real world

the open hand reveals the pearl

was nothing but a stone

and that faded rose

there between your perfect teeth

like all of this beauty you see

it’s only in your mind

gradually everything you think you need

will fall in to the mystery

right before your eyes
