VERSE 1:
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

PRE CHORUS:
I’ve tried One two three too many times
(To walk away)
I’ve heard one two THREE too many lies

CHORUS:
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 aint 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

VERSE 2:
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

PRE CH:
I’ve tried One two three too many times
(To walk away)
I’ve heard one two THREE too many lies

CHORUS:
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 aint 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

BRIDGE
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

End CHORUS:
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 aint 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 aint 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

    To me, lipstick explains my life. How the guy i love screwed up so bad its not funny. I still love him but im leaving. He already left now. I'm glad this song came out when it did. It helped me go thru alot. He caused me so much heartache .. And i still love him. One word of advice to the girls, love wholehearted and tell him everyday and ask if he feels the same way. Or you will never know. Kaitlyn11233

    She's hurt, the guy she loves is in love with someone else and she has to go and move on so he can be happy, she's gotta pretend she doesn't love him anymore... Or it'll hurt more

    It's about loving a guy that led you on and you're mad that you only seem to be his replacement for the girl he really likes. You always forgive him and continue getting hurt. When you saw him and his dream girl hug, it was the final straw. You know you will always love him but you can't stand the hurt anymore so everytime you see him, you ignore him and walk away or pretend that he's only a friend so that you won't break down and cry. It's the hardest thing to do but it's the only way you can cope and survive until someone better comes along or he comes to his senses.
