Gwen Stefani – War Paint lyrics

[Verse 1]
Look in the mirror super close, magnify, self-diagnose
Seeing things I never saw before
Reformation to get clear, 'bout to take on that new frontier
Leave it here, I don't need no souvenir

[Pre-Chorus]
Decorate my skin
Some scars you just can't cover up
Here I am again
This time I just have had enough

[Chorus]
I'm runnin' late, put on my war paint
Cause I'm getting ready for the combat
Get out my way, got on my war paint
Cause I'm getting ready for the combat
With each stroke I take, I put on my face
I make a mistake then I Q-tip, erase
It's not that I'm fake, it's just my war paint, yeah
I'm getting ready for the combat

[Refrain]
I'm goin' tribal
On ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I'm goin' tribal
On ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya

[Verse 2]
I've had my share of tragedies
Watching my mascara bleed
But I got some tricks way up my sleeve
Tip-toeing through the minefields
I'm so scared of how this feels
I'm so scared of how I feel

[Pre-Chorus]
Decorate my skin
I decorate my face
Some scars you just can't cover up
Here I am again
This time I just have had enough

[Chorus]
I'm runnin' late, put on my war paint
Cause I'm getting ready for the combat
Get out my way, got on my war paint
Cause I'm getting ready for the combat

[Refrain]
I'm goin' tribal
On ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I'm goin' tribal
On ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya

[Bridge]
I'm getting ready

[Chorus]
I'm runnin' late, put on my war paint
Cause I'm getting ready for the combat
Get out my way, got on my war paint
Cause I'm getting ready for the combat
With each stroke I take, I put on my face
I make a mistake then I Q-tip, erase
It's not that I'm fake, it's just my war paint, yeah
I'm getting ready for the combat

[Outro]
I'm gonna try boy
On ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I'm gonna try boy
On ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I'm gonna try boy
On ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I'm gonna try boy
On ya, on ya, on ya, on ya, on ya
I'm gonna try boy
