Sitting on this pedestal

I'm perfect

Silent and still

Like a work of art

I hang on your wall

Wide smile

With glistening white teeth

As you show me off

To all of your friends

I'm perfect

Leave me here

A shadow in your heart

While you have

Can't risk

Breaking a nail

Because god forbid

If I did

You'd say

I'm not perfect

And then, what use am I?

But what you don't know

Is when I'm

Alone in the dark

Turning in these chains

My frame of mind shatters

As I cry

That sorrowful tune

About a girl

Who could never be
