lyrics

Holly Slaughter / Georgia Middleman


Everyday I’m cleaning something
Or cooking for somebody else
I keep up the house
I taxi my kids
And I don’t make time for myself

I used run 10k races
Pilot airplanes all over the place
But lately I wonder
Where that woman has gone
Been awhile since I’ve seen her face

And oh where did that confidence go
It’s gotta be somewhere I know
Would you look at me
Trying to be perfect and strong
What a joke
Sometimes I think
I don’t matter at all
I guess what I’m trying to say
Is I was stupid to think
I could wear mascara today

I was an air force lieutenant colonel
Dedicated, always in demand
But what people don’t see
Is I’m really a mess
Not the person you think that I am

And oh where did that confidence go
It’s gotta be somewhere I know
Would you look at me
Trying to be perfect and strong
What a joke
Sometimes I think
I don’t matter at all
I guess what I’m trying to say
Is I was stupid to think
I could wear mascara today
