Scarlet Letters

@ 1996 C. Carothers

She left her message on the mirror
The day before she disappeared
Bon Voyage was all she wrote
There in her final note

Now there’s lipstick on my looking glass
I can't wash away
Lipstick on my looking glass
It's written all over my face

Scarlet Letters
That's how she said good-bye
Scarlet Letters
Now it's too late to cry

I read red writing on the wall
But my reflection says it all
I can't believe that it's all true
While my eyes follow me around the room

Through this lipstick on my looking glass
That I can't wash away
Lipstick on my looking glass
It's written all over my face

Scarlet Letters
That's how she said good-bye
Scarlet Letters
Now it's too late to cry

She's half a world away
I think by now
She's half a world away

Scarlet Letters...
