Portrait of a Girl

IVY
Portrait of a girl
Canvas of ages
The stage is hers
Demure and practiced beauty
Hold them all enthralled

Portrait of a girl
Object of rumour
A pose at play
They say she's fairest of them all

Paint her in
Watching one color end and one begin
Brush away what's stray
Add a finishing touch
The rapture cold as a pearl
Now the portrait has captured the girl
Now the portrait has captured the girl

Portrait of a girl

MATT
Don't mind me
I'm just watching

IVY
Painted illusion

MATT
It looks just just like you

IVY
She'll play her part
She sees that she's a work of art

MATT
Just understand I'm taken in

IVY
Watching one color end and one begin
Brush away what's stray
There's disguise in her eyes
Add shadows that dance across her skin
Hide the doubt that cries out within her

MATT
Don't know what to say
Scared to say too much

BOTH
Stripped bare beneath all the layers

IVY
Would you recognize the girl lying there?

MATT
I know there's love lying there

IVY
Sought after, trapped like a pearl
Now the portrait has captured the girl.
Now the portrait has captured the girl.

BOTH
Daring you to fall
Fairest of them all
