"China Doll" as written by and Bruce Hornsby....
You lie over there in a bed with iron rails
Like a frightened child in the cold light so frail
And things were going so well, just rolling along
Now, just when you think you've got it made, it's all gone

Well, China doll, I've got something for you
Well, a few good words, a hand to help you get through
May not be much but now it's all that I can do
Lay down your weary head, do whatever you gotta do

Put on your strong face when they're in the room
Can't show signs of weakness, an unspoken rule
Put on your best face, act like nothing's wrong
We can be so helpless, helpless and so strong

Well, China doll, I've got something for you
Well, a few good words, a hand to help you get through
May not be much, but now it's all that I can do
To ease your worried mind, do something to get through

We bend and break, so fragile, it's true
I say everything'll be alright but I don't have a clue
They say faith is a crutch, well, whatever works for you
In a world where you never know, I'll be there for you, I'll be there for you

Well, China doll, I've got something for you
Well, a few good words, a hand to help you get through
May not be much, but now it's all that I can do
Lay down your weary head
