Lyrics

Lipstick

Written By: marwenna jones/Simen Fjeld

Lipstick

Verse 1
Silly me I want to make up
But with you I’m always gonna have a bad hair day
We fuss and fight, it’s messy alright it
Get out of my sight, out of my way
A blemish, a blur, a shadow to me
So wipe that smile and face up to this
Chorus
I, I, I
I’m brushing you off
Can’t kiss a frog
Yea, I want my prince charming
You’re not on my list
So, baby get this
Won’t take the risk
Of a smudge, smudge, smudge, smudge, smudge
On my lipstick stick, stick, stick
Verse 2
Let’s blot the stain of our love
Coz the shine has gone and now
We got to kiss it off
So budge up, I’m pencilling in
A man who’ll make me feel like a lady
A blemish a blur, a shadow to me
So wipe that smile and face up to this, yea this
Chorus
Bridge
The glitz has gone
We gotta move, move on
I’ve washed my hands
Can’t gloss it over
Pack your bags
Can’t cover it up
Move on
Chorus

This Is It

Written By: Tessa

This Is It

I was always used to be
Just an ordinary girl
I don’t know who I was, or what I wanna be
But al the ones I love around me said,
Hey baby don’t give up
You day will come, just wait and see

And I feel it stronger every day
I know the time is right
For long I don’t know who I was, but now I see the light
I know it’s not an easy way
But this is all I want
I know that day is now

This is it, i feel the time has/is come
To show the world around me
That life has found me
And my world, turned inside upside down
It could feels like if I’m dying
But I’ll keep trying
This is it

I’ve never felt this way before
It is the start of something new
Feels like my world is finally opening that door I never new
I know my life is gonna change
And it will never be the same
But it’s a risk,
That I wanna take

And I feel it stronger every day
I know the time is right
For long I don’t know who I was, but now I see the light
I know it’s not an easy way
But this is all I want
I know that day is now

{Refrein}

And I know,
That things can go wrong
But I, have to be strong
Its a long way up
And a short way down
But I’ll give all what I’ve got

{Refrein x2}
