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

Preservation, lookin in the mirror
Preservation, but they dont know that Im scrapin it all off
Every night

Im 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 thats alright

Preservation, lookin in the mirror
Preservation, but they dont know that Im scrapin it off
Every night

Theyre linin up to make their entrance
When the words out Im in town, theyre not nice girls
But thats 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 dont know that Im scrapin it off
Every night
