They say I should "try some costumes on for size"
That baby’s got the bends and that I can’t acclimatise
"So let the scalpel slice a blessing from a curse
and the terror from the the silence"
They'd put my "dreams back in reverse" and

Make me so beautiful it hurts
They’d give me the face that I deserve

I said "but will it make me happy?"
"or at least let me pretend"
"honey if this don't make them love you, then you might as well be dead"

So make me so beautiful it hurts
Give me the face that I deserve

Give me style
Give me grace
Cos I’ve lied enough to reach the place
Where nothing works
No nothing, The place where nothing works

Give me the face that I deserve
