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 ok
Pretend I don't wanna stay
Act like this aint 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 aint got enough concealer
To hide how much I'll miss you
I've gotta cover up my hurt
No more - getting burnt
I really need'a 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
