Tori Kelly - Pretty Fades Lyrics




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 notice 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 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 changed
Will he tell me that I'm perfect
I want someone when the pretty fades

When the pretty fades
When the pretty fades

Hey television, can't think straight
Got me believing that I can't age
Try to convince but I know the truth
There's something more beautiful than my youth
Hey little darling, dry your tears
Don't be scared of another year
Soon we'll be laughing at our old mistakes
Loving every line on our wrinkled face
And it's all okay

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 changed
Will he tell me that I'm perfect
I want someone when the pretty fades

When the pretty fades
When the pretty fades

All that's left will be hiding underneath
(When the pretty, pretty, pretty fades)
Just want somebody to love all of me
(When the pretty, pretty, 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 changed
Will he tell me that I'm perfect
I want someone when the pretty fades

Will you love me
Will you love me, yeah
When the pretty fades

    Hey, little lover, do you see me?

    But I know it’ll leave 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 changed
    Will you tell me that I’m perfect?
    I want someone when the pretty fades
    (When the pretty fades, when the pretty fades)

    Hey, television, can’t think straight
    Got me believing that I can’t age
    Try to convince, but I know the truth
    There's something more beautiful than my youth
    Hey, little darlin', dry your tears

    When the pretty, when the pretty, pretty fades (oh)
    Just want somebody to love all of me
    When the pretty, when the pretty, pretty fades (oh, ooh)
    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
