lyrics

I wish I was a canvas so you could throw your paint on
Then I’d be something that you love you’d never wish for me to be gone
You could do with me whatever you please
Hang me up I’d be your masterpiece

I wish I was a block of clay so that you could make a pot
To be like putty in your hands to me would mean an awful lot
Come on, baby, I’m begging you please
How I wish to be your masterpiece

I want to be the sculpture you adore
I want to be something that you call yours
But it isn’t that way anymore
The chip on my shoulder’s now paint on the floor

Sooner or later you’re going to run out of supplies
You’ll tear me down to start from scratch no matter how I try
Not one for the classics or in antiquities
Guess I’ll never be your masterpiece

Not one for the classics or in antiquities
Guess I’ll never be
Guess I’ll never be
Guess I’ll never get to be your masterpiece
