lyrics

Well I heard your sob story, and for crying out loud
You couldn't cry out any louder to a less interested crowd
I'm sorry your star performance didn't merit more applause
But when you flaunt the pain it's hard to see past the scars

I'm asking, why do you paint yourself so sad?
Why do you tell the ones you love they wasted all the life you had?
Why don't you step away from the mirror
And wipe away all the tears you wear like a tattoo
You wear like a tattoo

Well you're so under my skin your blood must be running through my veins
And I don't mean to make a scene or be such a source of pain
But I can't tell if it's you or the sky when the rain falls down at night
You've got a way of flooding down your baggage whenever the time seems right

I'm asking, why do you paint yourself so sad?
Why do you tell the ones you love they wasted all the life you had?
Why don't you step away from the mirror
And wipe away all the tears you wear like a tattoo
You wear like a tattoo

Come on, tell me, can you hear?
Am I making myself clear?
Cuz I need for you to know:
All your crazy tears and fears and fire and brimstone gotta go

Well I heard your opinion and I couldn't be more sure
What's done is done, I've had my fun, and I did not stain my soul
You can say what you want to me but my only guarantee is
You and me, we've got our tattoos

I'm asking, why do you paint yourself so sad?
Why do you tell the ones you love they wasted all the life you had?
Why don't you step away from the mirror
And wipe away all the tears you wear like a tattoo
You wear like a tattoo
