"Sugar Coat" Lyrics

Little Big Town Lyrics


"Sugar Coat"

I turn the bathroom light on
To take my makeup off
Look at myself in the eye
And wonder why I wear it anyway

Another car drives by
I wonder where you are
The kids are all in bed
And everything but you is in its place

From the street view looking in
It’s pretty as a picture
A home sweet home

Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn’t have to wear this sugar coat

Passed down from my mom
She wore it so well
She’d rest it on my shoulders
Say it’s colder out there than you think

Would I recognize myself
Would anybody else
If I took the damn thing off and burned it up

Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn’t have to wear this sugar coat
Oh, this damn sugar coat

One of these nights I’ll meet you in the driveway
And tell you to go to hell, go to hell

Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn’t have to wear this sugar coat
This damn sugar coat
Oh, this sugar coat
This damn sugar coat
