Lyrics for myself. Prompted by the image of a rag doll on a sidewalk and wondering what she could be thinking. A song of despair, wish, and the universal feeling of being a misfit.

A Rag Doll's Dream

by vlravenscroft

A penny for your thoughts, my good man Here on this dirty sidewalk lives my land Each night that's brought I try to understand What makes me poor old doll and you, oh, so human

Is it the fantasies in your dreams? Is it in your eyes, your many sorrow tears? Is it the love and hate that live in your heart? Or is it simply just that you can't break apart?

To see the day beyond the night Reach for my dream and a new life Escape my fate, my fears and flaws Know love of all and their quiet awe

To learn what's wrong and what is truth Won't you let me Be you?

You rag doll on the sidewalk, take my hand Work your magic, hide me away from them Each night that's brought I try to understand What makes you adorable and me, oh, so human

Is it that we can't see you live and breathe? Is it on your face, always looking so sweet? Is it in your eyes, your still empty regard? Or is it simply just that you can't fall apart?

To see the day beyond the night Reach for my dreams and a new life Escape my fate, my fears and flaws Know love of all and their quiet awe

To learn what's wrong and what is truth Won't you let me, oh, won't you let me Won't you let me... ...be you?
