Broken Doll

Can't close the door it's broken
As he left, he kicked it open
I didn't speak or even try
The things he said were crazy
and I don't know why.
Anyway, he didn't say goodbye.

So I'm wondering if I'm free now
It's never been up to me now
Won't think about it any more.
The first thing I have to do is
fix the broken door
Pick the glass and wood up from the floor.

He took the best years from me
Then left in such a hurry
And didn't try to explain
I'm like a broken doll
that's left out in the rain
Never to be thought about again.

How will I spend my free time
Oh yeah, I'm sure that I'll find
something to do for me.
I'll get the kids around Sunday
the whole family.
Time I got that baby on my knee.
