Two Face


Should beauty make me feel this way?
Skin deep isn’t as deep as I need you to be
Sure, you’re easy on the eyes
But I can’t look at you the same way anymore

You can’t make a first impression twice
None of this “fake it to make it”

What you don’t understand is
The beauty below the make up is what I want to breathe for
Like lipstick, your words leave a mark on me
I do a double-take every time you speak in tongues so tainted

You can’t hide behind a mirror
Show me your good side, if you still have one
You’re no better than you appear
Bad ways always destroy beauty
It’s such a shame
