Tug on a wire to make me dance
A flick of the wrist can send me flying
Marionette given the chance
I'd trade it all in 'cause I keep tryin'

To cut the strings let my arms fall
Down loosely at my sides
Watch the paint melt away
As I step in to the daylight

Oh, Gepetto how you loved me
Oh, Gepetto aren't you proud?
So you're giving up your best
So that I can be a real boy
Oh, well I can be a real boy now

Splinters run deep
Bodies run cold
Hung on a wall carved in your likeness
And I'll tell a lie
But you'll always know
'Cause I'm growin' up and
I'm growin' out of this

Cut the strings
Let my arms fall down loosely at my sides
Watch the paint melt away
As I step in to the daylight

Oh, Gepetto how you loved me
Oh, Gepetto aren't you proud?
So you're giving up your best
So that I can be a real boy
Oh, well I can be a real boy now

So make a wish and start
Some place far away
But faith will fall fast
Before I learn the hard way
And it's not the words that you say
It's the time that you wait to say them

Oh, Gepetto how you loved me
Oh, Gepetto aren't you proud?
Oh, Gepetto how you loved me
Oh, so I can be a real boy
I can be a real boy
I can be a real boy, now
