Faces (a little more of you)

verse 1: Walking down the streets of any ordinary town

I see faces all around

not a crinkle, not a wrinkle, not a frown

only silky faces, prying eyes.

All made up and drowned in perfect shapes of beauty

telling fairy tales and lies.

I face the lightness, the brightness of a glamorous untruth

and suddenly I see, suddenly I see:

 

chorus:  A little bit remake, a little bit redo

a little less flawless and a little less untruth

but a little more, a little, just a little more of you

and I fancy, I fancy all over the place

I fancy your smiling face.

 

verse 2: Walking through the shops of any ordinary town

I see graciousness around

all the twinkle, all the sparkle, all the silence

of the advertising tempting sound.

Barbie pop-up models begging for my money

fairy masters of disguise.

I listen to the blankness, the quiet whisper of the truth

and suddenly I see, suddenly I see:

 

chorus:  A little bit remake, a little bit redo

a little less flawless and a little less untruth

but a little more, a little, just a little more of you

and I fancy, I fancy all over the place

I fancy your smiling face.
