about

A very stripped-back rendition of a song I wrote when I was 12. It has had many, many incarnations and variations since!

lyrics

I could be
Anything you want me to be
Consider me your work of art
Close to your heart to stay.
I could do
Anything you want me to do
Just go ahead and make me right
And hold me tight I pray.

Build me from remains of others, others you once loved
I know you’ll want to pick and choose, I know I’m not enough
So take that pretty girl’s dark hair and another’s skin so tanned
And mould me to perfection, I’m entirely in your hands

Give me eyes,
Bluer than the summer skies,
Or possibly an emerald hue,
It’s up to you my dear.
Arms and legs,
Dainty arms and long, slender legs?
Choose the ones you’d love the more,
That’s what I’m for, I’m here.

Craft me from your fine collection, your legacy of love,
I wait for your approval cause, I know I’m not enough
And I don’t care how much I change, I know there’s lots to do
I’m perfect being patchwork, if it means I’m loved by you

I could be
Anything you want me to be
Consider me your work of art
Close to your heart to stay.
