[Refrain]
Days Pass and
Time Goes on and on
You might think my skin
was strong enough
but there's something you don't understand
I'm porcelain
I'm porcelain

You know that if I could
You know that sky looks over the sea
I don't think there's one thing in this world
that'll make you notice me
you can wield that sword in any direction you damn well please
you don't understand that my heart is in your hands
and I'm beggin you not to
squeeze
Please don't Squeaze

[Verse 1]
I was ruined in the seventh grade
the pain never changed and went away
the memories ingrained like it was yesterday
They're Tellin me I'm crazed
because I blessed her name
A steady Gaze
to sweat her frame
If life was just a play
then she was centre stage
Sent her letter pages on a daily basis
That her friends passed
So if she asked there's no way to trace this
She was the reigning queen of Junior high
and I was faceless
Painting things on bracelets
And even looked graceful in plaided braces
I hate to say this but my aim was wasted
so I trained my heart for seven years
but she remained in basics
leading the same parade of babes to places
swearing I held a space in her heart
but every semester she barely could place me
yet I waited and displayed my patience
even ignored the statements of positive advice
and the cases of shaky situations
but she never associated me to hit relations
with baited breath I was still a breakage
like procelain

[Refrain]
Days Pass and
Time Goes on and on
You might think my skin
was strong enough
but there's something you don't understand
I'm porcelain
I'm porcelain

[verse 2]
With my hormones racin
praying for a date on summer vacation
around the time when your body is under renovation
you know when nothin really fits
and the girls get vulgar
start lookin for older affiliates
I held a silly wish in my mind
that she's willingly kiss these lips
But I won't get frisky
I get the feeling she dissed me
I'm still in a risky position
itchin to head a decision
I must up the ambition
and make the proposition
desperation became my religion
the same way you envision
cynics findin jesus caged in a prison
Visiting hours consisted of English lit and diction
History quizzes on christians and mr Richard Nixon
Transfixed on her smile
just like the other 50 guys she hypnotised
I guess I'm another stickler for pretty eyes
I minimised my obsession
never made the confession
even evaded her presence at the graduation procession
it was a decision I later regretted
wonderin what I coulda said
and would itta swept her away if I'd said it
step and repeat and edit
my thoughts clashed
but I regained my lost chance
the very day we crossed paths again
I revelled in the opportunity
asked her to go dancin
baskin in this confidence that was new to me
and it worked beautifully
a wild night became a quiet ride home
as I broke the silence her eyes roamed
seven years of frustration and here her ears felt abrasion
as I laced her with my tale of lost years in anticipation
Her reaction was a face of fakeness
told me she was flattered but within her tone lack of any amazement
It seems she heard it all before
I realised then her popularities what I wanted her for
I tried to be strong as she hopped out the door
but even the hardest hearts break when they're dropped on the floor
Like Porcelain

[Refrain]
Days Pass and
Time Goes on and on (that's love)
You might think my skin(so hard to let go sometimes)
was strong enough
but there's something you don't understand (but you gotta move on)
I'm porcelain (you can break your own heart)
I'm porcelain

Days Pass and
Time Goes on and on (uh-uh)
You might think my skin
was strong enough (not strong enough)
but there's something you don't understand
I'm porcelain
I'm porcelain

Cos in the end
Days Pass and (just little boys with scarred hearts from girls who think they older than they really are)
Time Goes on and on(just little boys with scarred hearts from girls who think they older than they really are)
You might think my skin (just little girls with scarred hearts from boys who think they older than they really are)
was strong enough
but there's something you don't understand (just little Kids with scarred hearts from other little kids)
I'm porcelain
I'm porcelain

    General Commentcorrections:
    You know that if I could, I'd give you the sky and also the sea, I don't think there's one thing in this world tha'll make you notice me...

    Sent her letter pages on a daily basis that her friends trashed in waste bins so if she asked there's no way to trace this

    swearing I held a space in her heart but every semester she'd vainly replace it

    the girls get bolder...

    damn there are just too many mistakes.
