Pretty Fades
by Tori Kelly

Album: Inspired by True Events


Intro
Oh-oh
Uh, uh

Verse 1
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 you when it all fades out
When it all fades out

Chorus
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

Verse 2
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
Don't be scared of another year
Soon we'll be laughing at our old mistakes
Lovin' every line on our wrinkled face
And it's all okay

Chorus
I 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

Bridge
All that's left will be hiding underneath
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
Uh-uh, uh-uh
Oh-ooh-uh
Uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh
When the pretty fades

Chorus
Gotta have it (Oh), think I need 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 (When I'm older) and I wake up (And I wake up)
With no makeup (Ooh) and my body changed
Will you tell me that I'm perfect?
I want someone when the pretty fades

Outro
Will you love me?
Will you love me, yeah, when the pretty fades?
