Lipstick On An Angel

She was four years old and full of life..
and she was really tryin..
Not to wake her mom...and I just got home

When I tiptoed in...she smiled at me..
And I could plainly see
The makeup on her face... her momma didn't hear me say

You don't need to put lipstick on an angel
Or hang diamonds on the moon
The things in life that are beautiful
Are just plain beautiful like you

Don't go messin' with perfection
It's not what they see... it's what you do
No you...
Don't need to put lipstick on an angel

She dropped head and then she said
Daddy I made a mess...
Guess I'm in trouble now... but mommy is so beautiful..

I said don't you know
It wasn't all that stuff that made me fall in love...
Honey... just like you... her smile came shining through...


You don't need to put lipstick on an angel
Or hang diamonds on the moon
The things in life that are beautiful
Are just plain beautiful like you

Don't go messin' with perfection
It's not what they see it's what you do
No you
Don't need to put lipstick on an angel






When you think about looking beautiful like your momma does..
That lipstick is just a start...
True beauty comes from the heart..


Lipstick on an angel
Diamonds on the moon
The things in life that are beautiful
Are just plain beautiful like you

Don't go messin' with perfection
It's not what they see it's what you do
No you
Don't need to put lipstick on an angel...
