Lyrics

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus 1]
Undercover, camouflage
Secrets, lies and sabotage
Never even saw her face
Leaving with her entourage

[Verse 2]
She's got her war paint on
So she's alone again
Says it's self-defense
I never let it hurt because I always hurt them first
You know it's common sense

[Chorus 1]
Undercover, camouflage
Secrets, lies and sabotage
Never even saw her face
Leaving with her entourage

[Chorus 2]
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

[Post-Chorus]
Faster than the speed light

[Verse 3]
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

[Chorus 2]
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

[Post-Chorus]
Faster than the speed light

[Verse 4]
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"

[Chorus 1]
Undercover, camouflage
Secrets, lies and sabotage
Never even saw her face
Leaving with her entourage

[Chorus 2]
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

[Outro]
So take your war paint off
Yeah, take your war paint off
