How do I get closer to you
When you keep it all on mute
How will I know the right way to love you

Usually the Queen of figurin' out
Breaking down a man is no work out
But I have no clue
How to get through to you

I wanna hit you just to see if you cry
I keep knockin' on wood, hopin' there's a real boy inside

But you're not a man
You're just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man

I wish I could just turn you on
Put a battery in and make you talk
Even pull a string for you to say anything

But with you there is no guarantee
Only expired warranty
A bunch of broken parts
And I can't seem to find your heart

I'm such a fool
I'm such a fool
I'm such a fool
This one's outta my hands
I can't put you back together again

Cause you're not a man
You're just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man
You're just a, a toy
Could you ever be a real, real boy
And understand
But you're not a man

If the past is the problem
Our future can solve them baby
I could bring you life if you let me inside baby
It'll hurt but in the end you'll be a man

Cause you're not a man
You're just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man
You're just a, a toy
Could you ever be a real, real boy
And understand
But you're not a man

Cause you're not a man
You're just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel that my love is real
But you're not a man
