Lyrics

Bite Your Lip And Fake It

Written By: Asking Alexandria

'BITE YOUR LIP AND FAKE IT':

Take the broken heart and stitch it up with some tears

Blush it up, dress it up and put it on ice it keeps us cold

Frozen your lips turn lullabies numb

You're laughing melodies in time with heartbreak and rhyme.

Don't go blowing me a kiss,

Cos' you'll see it break down in all its elegance,

Like a model wearing the wrong make-up for her own fashion parade!

Biting your lip and I know,

You are faking it, you are hating it

Writing another lipstick letter, painting our script you're the artist.

Red for the love, white for the lies, black the clichés I'll see it in your eyes

Brush in some red, sketch in some blue, picture perfect, me and you

Don't forget the title, "inventing tragedy in black and white"

Don't go blowing me a kiss,

Cos' you'll see it break down in all its elegance,

Like a model wearing the wrong make-up for her own fashion parade!

Biting your lip, I know your faking it,

Letting it bleed, I know your hating it!

Painting my tragedy, singing my tragedy!

But would you blow me a kiss?

At the bottom of your letters

All of my love

All of my hate

All of my love

There's no melody that fits with drop-dead gorgeous

Your name doesn't fit with the chorus or a line from her song,

But she's singing your tragedy, and her lipstick stains, me and you!
