It Ain't Pretty

  • Had a feeling, I was feeling alright
    But it just happened to be Saturday night
    I put my lipstick on a little too bright
    Then I took a deep breathe and started to drive

    He'd let me in without a cover charge
    Found my way to the back of the bar
    Peeled the corners of a cocktail napkin
    Watching everybody smiling, laughing

    I just bought a drink
    Downtown all alone
    Searching through the names
    Getting lost in my cellphone
    It ain't pretty, it ain't pretty
    When a heart breaks

    Made my way to the bathroom mirror
    Standing next to some girl spilling beer
    She didn't notice I was drying my tears
    Just look at me now, God, how'd I get here?

    'Cause I just kissed a boy
    And I barely even knew his name
    I let him take me by the hand
    Hold me close while our old song played
    It ain't pretty, it ain't pretty
    When a heart breaks

    I almost dialed your number
    To remind you what you did
    But I think it might be better
    To just let this night end

    So, I just called a cab
    Outside it's starting to rain
    I got my high heels in my hand
    Oh I'm ready for the walk of shame
    It ain't pretty, it ain't pretty
    It ain't pretty
    When a heart breaks

    I just bought a drink, it ain't pretty
    I just kissed a boy, it ain't pretty
    I just called a cab Writer/s: ERIC PASLAY, NICHOLLE ANNE GALYON
