You're out with friends going club to club
I see you almost every night
I watch you dance every dance
Men lined up left and right

I hear you tell them stories
Of your happy neon life

You paint a pretty picture
Deception's quite an art
Just one look into your party face
There's a picture of a broken heart
A picture of a broken heart

You wear your smile a little too tight
You flirt too much with the band
You laugh and sing just a little too loud
Like someone who's just lost their man

Your act is quite convincing
But loneliness leaves clues

You paint a pretty picture
Deception's quite an art
Just one look into your party face
There's a picture of a broken heart
A picture of a broken heart

I can see a thousand heartaches hidden in your stare
The hurt behind those sad eyes, I been there
I've had my own high times and I've had my falls
You can talk a thousand words, but one picture says it all

I glance at you while no one's looking
I see the pain cloud up your eyes
I've watched you blink back a memory
I've watched you choke back a cry

But when the light's back on you
You're right back in disguise

You paint a pretty picture
Deception's quite an art
Just one look into your party face
There's a picture of a broken heart
A picture of a broken heart
A picture of a broken heart

Yeah, yeah

I know you've been crying
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
