Lipstick on your collar
Perfume on your skin
Wrinkles in your t-shirt
Hickies on your chin
I'm smart enough to realize
That your drifting away
But still dumb enough to cling to you
Wanting you to stay
So I close my eyes
And breathe in deep
The smell I knows not yours
Close my eyes and turn my cheek
Hiding my reality so I don't seek
The truth in you and have to find
That you and your love
Are no longer mine
