Told you I felt lucky with my humble breasts
Well, I don't
Said that I was sure the world was gonna change
Well, I'm not
Before I didn't give a damn 'bout what they say
But I do
Promised that I'll never-ever lie to you

So you can't hide
Taking the make-up off my face
Before I forget my own features

I'm not here to let you down
But the costume makes the clown
It's just lashing out on me, don't be so hard
Don't be so hard on this
It's your turn now
To cheat on me

Promises I made to you went down the sink
Really hope I haven't harmed your self-esteem
I'm not a virgin but I'm not the whore you think
And I don't always smell like strawberries and cream

So you can hide
I'm taking the make-up off my face
Before I forget who I am now

'Cause I'm not here to let you down
But the costume makes the clown
It's just life's anatomy, don't be so hard
Don't be so hard on this
It's your turn now, turn now

I'm not here to let you down
But the costume makes the clown
It's just life's anatomy, don't be so hard
Don't be so hard on this
It's your turn now, your turn now

So don't shit on me
