Since we broke up
I’ve had a big wake up.
I’ve had the urge to kiss and make-up.
So I’ve slicked on some new bright lippy
Kissed myself and felt a bit dippy.
I’ve smudged on some eye-crayon
and seen a gorgeous new dawn.
I’ve traced a bold eye-line.
It’s given me such a shine.
I feel a new girl.
I know I’ll soon be someone’s precious pearl…
Or do I mean sapphire
of someone who’s no liar;
‘cos you made sure our fire
is now just a burnt out pyre.
Yes, it’s been a great wake up.
I’ve learnt to kiss and make-up.
