"Wind Up Doll" as written by and Marissa Nadler....
Wind up doll, wind up doll
It's been years since she came over on the green plains to you
She calls his name, shanee dee ah dee ah dee
Over rock and sea to her baby
When the box went in the ground
Cedar trees were all around
He wouldn't take her from her town
And she ain't nothing but a ghost now
Wind up doll in the back
Wind up doll click and clack, click and clack
She will never be what you want her to be
She has dreams every night
About the box of cedar where
Where you went to lay
All come to life
Hold her on the greens
Hold her on the green plains
Like you used to do
But she ain't nothing but a ghost
Wind up doll in the back
Wind up doll click and clack, click and clack
She will never be what you want her to be
Wind her up to walk and wind her to speak
Hold her on the greens
Hold her on the green plains
Like you used to do
But she ain't nothing but a ghost
