Woman’s Face

( Colin Hay )

Don’t put on that makeup
Don’t cover your skin
Let it be naked
And let me look in
Don’t put on the lipstick
Just this once
I know you’ve got cracked lips
From racing the wind

And if you ask me what I am seeking
Is there some truth that I embrace
I’m simple enough
And seeing is believing
And what I see
Is a woman’s face

You don’t look like a model
And thank God for that
You look so beautiful in your morning hat
Don’t put on those earrings
That you love so much
From where I am sitting
You can do without that touch

And if you ask me
Why I am staring
It’s as innocent as a caress
There’s nowhere but here
We’re no longer hiding
Nothing’s as free as a woman’s face

Now you are laughing
From deep in your soul
The lines tell a story
That’s not done being told
Your eyes hold your secrets
They never shall tell
Blue as the ocean
And deep as a well

And if you ask me what I am seeking
Is there some truth that has such grace
I’m simple enough and seeing is believing
And what I see right in front of me is a woman’s face

You know you make me crazy baby
When you give me that pout
Let’s just stay in
Let’s not go out
Let’s go leaping, leaping, leaping
Leaping about
