I'm preserving myself with make-up
Lookin in the mirror
I'm preserving my life, I can take it
Shinin in the spotlight

Preservation, lookin in the mirror
Preservation, but they don't know that I'm scrapin it all off
Every night

I'm reserving my rights, reputation
Livin in a movie, its keepin me lookin right
When the secret is out to the public
Seein is believin, they still wanna be me at night
When the parts get shorter, the parties get harder
But that's alright

Preservation, lookin in the mirror
Preservation, but they don't know that I'm scrapin it off
Every night

Theyre linin up to make their entrance
When the words out I'm in town, theyre not nice girls
But that's alright
Theyre lookin so much better when the lights go down
But nice girls is just a frame of mind

Preservation, lookin in the mirror
Preservation, but they don't know that I'm scrapin it off
Every night
