​Wind Up Doll

This song is by Marissa Nadler and appears on the album Marissa Nadler (2011).

Wind her up, wind her up
It's been years since she came
Over on the green plains to you

She calls his name
Shannaddee a dee a dee a dee
Over rock and sea
To her baby

When the box went in the ground
Cedar trees were all around
A war did take him from her town
And she ain't nothing but a ghost now

Wind up doll
In the back
Wind up doll
Click and clack
Click and clack

She will never be what you want her to be

She has dreams
Every night
That the box of cedar where
Where you went to lay
Will come to life
Hold her on the greens
Hold her on the green plains
Like you used to do
But she ain't nothing but a ghost you

You wind her up
In the back
Wind up doll
Click and clack
Click and clack

She will never be what you want her to be
Wind her up to walk and wind her up to speak

Hold her on the greens
Hold her on the green plains
Like you used to do
But she ain't nothing but a ghost
