Cover your face with makeup,

tell yourself it's going to be okay.

Hide your red stinging eyes

and try, oh try, to hide the pain.

Look away when they look at you,

you don't want them to know.

Bury your head in your arms

so they don't see your tears.


That mascara's going to come off

as soon as you walk though the rain.

The cover-up on your sad face

with come off and smudge.

That mask will come off

one day.
