Lipstick

I know the lipstick won't fix it
But I've gotta put my game face on
I wish mascara could mask this
Until all the tears are gone

I've gotta paint the pain away
Make like I'm okay
Pretend I don't wanna stay
Act like this ain't killing me

I've tried one, two, three too many times
(To walk away)
I've heard one, two, three too many lies

So I gotta pretend that I'm not gonna miss you
I gotta pretend that this is what I wanna do
I gotta pretend when I walk out that door
That I don't love you anymore

I gotta play the part act like it ain't killin' me
Gotta play the part when you try stopping me
Hide what's written on my face
Dig deep in the makeup case and cover it with lipstick

I'm sick of looking in the mirror
'Cause my mirror sees right through
MAC ain't got enough concealer
To hide how much I'll miss you

I've gotta cover up my hurt
No more getting burnt
I really needa let you go
'Cause my heart can't take no more

I've tried one, two, three too many times
(To walk away)
I've heard one, two, three too many lies

So I gotta pretend that I'm not gonna miss you
I gotta pretend that this is what I wanna do
I gotta pretend when I walk out that door
That I don't love you anymore

I gotta play the part act like it ain't killin' me
Gotta play the part when you try stopping me
Hide what's written on my face
Dig deep in the makeup case and cover it with lipstick

It's the hardest role I'll ever have to play
It's the hardest lie I'll ever have to make
To look you in the eye and not break down and cry
When I say goodbye

So I gotta pretend that I'm not gonna miss you
I gotta pretend that this is what I wanna do
I gotta pretend when I walk out that door
That I don't love you anymore

I gotta play the part act like it ain't killin' me
Gotta play the part when you try stopping me
Hide what's written on my face
Dig deep in the makeup case

So I gotta pretend that I'm not gonna miss you
I gotta pretend that this is what I wanna do
I gotta pretend when I walk out that door
That I don't love you anymore

I gotta play the part act like it ain't killin' me
Gotta play the part when you try stopping me
Hide what's written on my face
Dig deep in the makeup case and cover it with lipstick
