Mannequin Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
How do I get closer to you
When you keep it all on mute
How will I know the right way to love you
Verse 2
Usually the Queen of figurin' out
Breaking down a man is no work out
But I have no clue
How to get through to you
Verse 3
I wanna hit you just to see if you cry
I keep knockin' on wood, hopin' there's a real boy inside
Verse 4
But you're not a man
You're just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man
Verse 5
I wish I could just turn you on
Put a battery in and make you talk
Even pull a string for you to say anything
Verse 6
But with you there is no guarantee
Only expired warranty
A bunch of broken parts
And I can't seem to find your heart
Verse 7
I'm such a fool
I'm such a fool
I'm such a fool
This one's outta my hands
I can't put you back together again
Verse 8
Cause you're not a man
You're just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man
You're just a, a toy
Could you ever be a real, real boy
And understand
But you're not a man
Verse 9
If the past is the problem
Our future can solve them baby
I could bring you life if you let me inside baby
It'll hurt but in the end you'll be a man
Verse 10
Cause you're not a man
You're just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man
You're just a, a toy
Could you ever be a real, real boy
And understand
But you're not a man
Verse 11
Cause you're not a man
You're just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man
