Makeup

We wake up, we put on our makeup
It's time for a new day
We're drinking out of our half-empty cups,
Wishing this would all go away.

It's time for a new day
Putting on a new mask
Wishing this would all go away
We're never up for this task.

Putting on a new mask
Trying to hide yesterday's pain
We're never up for this task
Trying to look like a plain Jane.

Trying to hide yesterday's pain
All of our silly little tears
Trying to look like your average plain Jane
While hiding all of our fears.

All of our silly little tears
We try to hide
While hiding all of our fears
Keeping things hidden from the outside.

We try to hide
Behind all our little facades
Keeping things hidden from the outside
We will keep out smiles and nods.

Behind all our little facades
We're drinking out of half empty cups,
We'll keep our smiles and nods
We wake up, we put on our makeup.
