  • Face to face, but miles away
    Building trenches out of empty spaces
    Lay here, next to me
    And close the distance in between

    I'll take off yours if you take off mine
    Reveal the things that we're tryna hide
    Take off yours if you take off mine
    Take off mine, yeah

    'Cause we could be beautiful without our war paint
    Our war paint
    And we could have it all once we let our walls break
    Our walls break
    Why in the hell do we fight on the front line?
    When we both know that we're here on the same side
    We could be beautiful without the mistake
    Of our war paint

    Scar to scar, I wanna know
    Every story that you never told
    Don't shut me out, don't think too much
    Don't keep that barricade up

    I'll take off yours if you take off mine
    Reveal the things that we're tryna hide
    Take off yours if you take off mine
    Take off mine, yeah

    'Cause we could be beautiful without our war paint
    Our war paint
    And we could have it all once we let our walls break
    Our walls break
    Why in the hell do we fight on the front line?
    When we both know that we're here on the same side
    We could be beautiful without the mistake
    Of our war paint

    So hold me close and kiss my skin
    Don't be afraid, let me in
    I'll hold you close and take your hand
    To my heart, here I am, yeah (Oh)
    Oh

    'Cause we could be beautiful without our war paint
    Our war paint
    And we could have it all once we let our walls break
    Our walls break
    Why in the hell do we fight on the front line?
    When we both know that we're here on the same side
    We could be beautiful without the mistake ('Cause we could be beautiful)
    Of our war paint

    'Cause we could be beautiful without our war paint
    Our war paint (Without our war paint)
    And we could have it all once we let our walls break (We could have it all)
    Our walls break (We could have it all)
    Why in the hell do we fight on the front line? (The front line)
    When we both know that we're here on the same side
    We could be beautiful without the mistake
