Hey, little lover, do you see me?
Oh, I really care what you think
All dressed up and it’s all for show
Gotta play the part just so you know

This is me baby, it’s what you like
Lipstick ready, painted eyes
Oh, I got your focus just for now
But I know it’ll leave you when it all fades out
When it all fades out

Gotta have it, think I need it, ‘cause I want it
But hold up, wait
When I’m looking in the mirror, gotta tell myself that the pretty fades
When I’m older and I wake up with no makeup and my body changes
Will you tell me that I’m perfect?
I want someone when the pretty fades
When the pretty fades

Hey, television, can’t think straight got me believing that I can’t age
Trying to convince but I know the truth
There’s something more beautiful than my youth
Hey, little darlin’, dry your tears
Don’t be scared of another year
Soon well be laughing at our old mistakes
Lovin’ every line on our wrinkled face
And it’s all ok

Gotta have it, think I need it, ‘cause I want it
But hold up, wait
When I’m looking in the mirror gotta tell myself that the pretty fades
When I’m older and I wake up with no makeup and my body changes
Will you tell me that I’m perfect?
I want someone when the pretty fades
When the pretty fades

All that’s left will be
Hiding underneath
The pretty fades
I just want somebody to love all of me
When the pretty fades
When the pretty fades

Gotta have it, think I need it, ‘cause I want it
But hold up, wait
When I’m looking in the mirror gotta tell myself that the pretty fades
When I’m older and I wake up with no makeup and my body changes
Will you tell me that I’m perfect?
I want someone when the pretty fades

Will you love me, will you love me?
Will you love me when the pretty fades?
