Jonah Marais - War Paint Lyrics

When the daylight's gone
She puts her war paint on
She takes no prisoners, you will be missing her
When nighttime turns to dawn
And when the moonlight comes
That's when she starts to run
She'll catch you standing still when she comes in for the kill
And she don't need no gun

Undercover, camouflage
Secrets, lies and sabotage
Never even saw her face
Leaving with her entourage

She's got her war paint on
So she's alone again
Says it's self-defence
I never let it hurt because I always hurt them first
You know it's common sense

Undercover, camouflage
Secrets, lies and sabotage
Never even saw her face
Leaving with her entourage

I don't want to change your life
But if I could take you home tonight
Baby, we can slow it down
Faster than the speed of light

Faster than the speed light

She learned her lesson well
Don't go "au naturel"
Never let them see the beauty underneath
Just keep it to yourself
She's got a heart of glass
Behind her makeup mask
I want to take it off and make the aching stop
Set her free at last

I don't want to change your life
But if I could take you home tonight
Baby, we can slow it down
Faster than the speed of light

Faster than the speed light

She's not looking for a friend
(She said) "that's not the way this ends
But give me one more night 'til the morning light
And we can just pretend"

Undercover, camouflage
Secrets, lies and sabotage
Never even saw her face
Leaving with her entourage

I don't want to change your life
But if I could take you home tonight
Baby, we can slow it down
Faster than the speed of light

So take your war paint off
Yeah, take your war paint off

    It is currently the 10th June 2019, Jonah Marais is in a world famous band, and currently going on a world tour, selling out arenas and I couldn't be more proud. Even out of all the WDW songs, this is so my favourite and it deserves so much more appreciation. Jonah Marais has come so far and I wanted to let him know that this song helped me to take my war paint off❤️
