Verse 1
The silence wakes up from under your make up
A tear bleeds the armor off your face
Blue is now leaving, you face behind bleeding
As it dances its way past your lips
And the words still remain as your eyes cringe in pain
An attempt to keep your cool
A tear hits you tongue as your world comes undone
And everyone around you pretends that they care
Breathing in has never been so hard
And closing your eyes has never felt so right
You were never one to make a scene
But that doesn't matter tonight
Verse 2
I trace the lipstick, for anyone who missed it
Back to it's home smeared across you face
Unanswered phone calls, well they don't solve
Anything except that you
You know you aren't wanted, that's not how you wanted
It to be
And your tears spell out, something you feel now
A five letter word alone
You'll take your pride, leave it behind
Or at least what pieces are left
And you'll move on
And you'll find some self-respect
In the bookstore on the isle
Filled with romance novels
You'll read your days away
Remembering what you lost
