You've gotta admit, you paint a pretty picture
No one would ever suspect, your so adept at the art
I hear the lonely lover sigh
You hide behind cosmetic eyes
Kiss them off with lipstick lies
Lipstick lies won't hide the truth
They won't keep you waterproof
The victim of your vanity

You're the picasso of pain, a fantasy in fleshtone
And though you're never the same
You're never far from the mark
Now and then you close your eyes
To see the heartbreak in disguise

Kiss them off with lipstick lies
Lipstick lies won't hide the truth
They won't keep you waterproof
The victim of your vanity

You see just what you want to see
Who's to blame?
Love is love by any name
Who's to blame?

Lipstick lies won't hide the truth
They won't keep you waterproof
The victim of your vanity
You see just what you want to see

Who's to blame?
Love is love by any name

Who's to blame?
Love is love by any name

Who's to blame?
Love is love by any name

Who's to blame?
