Big Tears And Make-Up

This song is by Billie Ray Martin and appears on the album Deadline for My Memories (1995).

Big tears and make-up
Can leave the traces
Of the secrets never found
In a million other faces
Big tears and make-up
Run many ways
But never never save your face

We could have been the next big thing
There wasn't really that much to lose
But it turned out to be
Just another nightmare
In that everlasting daydream of the film I'm in
You played the part of an actor
Dragging me up into your screen
Where I knew I'd play the drama queen
From the bottom of my heart

Big tears and make-up
Can leave the traces
Of the secrets never found
In a million other faces
Big tears and make-up
Can never (never) never (never)
Never save your time

Oh I never believed a word you said
But I agreed for a start
You paid me ten cents imagination
For a million dollar part
And when the face melts to a scream
Close-up in the dark
The tears roll on and on and on
(And on and on and on and on and on and)
When you never really felt it was time to start

Big tears and make-up
Can leave the traces
Of the secrets never found
In a million other faces

Big tears and make-up
(Big tears and make-up)
Can leave the traces, yes
Of the secrets never found
In a thousand other faces
