China Doll

Bruce Hornsby

You lie over there in a bed with iron rails
Like a frightened child in the cold light, so frail
Things were going so well,just rolling along
Now, just when you think you got it all made,
You think itís all gone

China doll, Iíve got something for you
A few good words, a hand to help you get through
May not be much, but now itís all that I can do
Lay down your weary head
Do whatever you gotta do

Put on your strong face when theyíre in the room
Canít show signs of weakness; an unspoken rule
Put on your strong face, act like nothingís wrong
We can be so helpless, helpless and so strong

China doll, Iíve got something for you
A few good words, a hand to help you get through
May not be much, but now itís all that I can do
To ease your worried mind
Do something to get through

We bend and break, so fragile, itís true
I say everythingíll be alright but I donít have a clue
They say faith is a crutch, well whatever works for you
In a world where you never know
Iíll be there for you,
Iíll be there for you...

China doll, Iíve got something for you
A few good words, a hand to help you get through
May not be much, but now itís all that I can do
Lay down your weary head
Do whatever you gotta do
