When I catch the lift to reach a higher floor,
I always push the button to close the door,
I'd rather run away from saying hello,
I'd rather be cold and wait for the bus
and there's no such thing as a stranger I trust

I tried to put my make-up on, to cover up whats wrong,
Doesn't stop it running down, with the thunder clouds,
I need to chill against the rubbish cans
And learn to live with dirty hands,
I tried to put my make-up on, but I'm not fooling anyone

Didn't I know,
Didn't I know,
Why didn't I know,
Didn't I know,
Why

There's no profession when I'm afraid (when I'm, when I'm afraid of the days)
I let my pride come and take the reigns (my pride come take the reigns)
Now you can offer a shoulder for me to lean on
Thats what I need to give it away
Cause I kept inside with a lock and chain

I tried to put my make-up on, to cover up whats wrong,
Doesn't stop it running down, with the thunder clouds,
I need to chill against the rubbish cans
And learn to live with dirty hands,
I tried to put my make-up on, but I'm not fooling anyone

Didn't I know
why didn't I know?
Mascara, mascara down my face
Didn't I know
Why didn't I know?
And I cant avoid the mess I've made

I tried to put my make-up on, to cover up whats wrong,
doesn't stop it running down, with the thunder clouds,
I need to chill against the rubbish cans,
And learn to live with dirty hands
I tried to put my make-up on, but I'm not fooling anyone

Didn't I know
Why didn't I know
Didn't I know..no no
