Closet Femme - Kate Reid - Jan. 2011

 

Over the last couple of weeks

I find myself strolling through the city streets

Coveting the clothes in the windows of those

High-fashion boutiques

 

I ainÕt bold enough to wear those outfits

I couldnÕt pull it off, IÕd be self-conscious

What if someone saw me out in public?

That lady look isnÕt me

 

I canÕt believe IÕm saying this out loud

At my workplace, in front of a crowd

Cuz you know me IÕm kinda shy

But itÕs time I clarified

 

What you see ainÕt always what you get

I have another hidden aesthetic

Underneath this semi-tough exterior

Gotta hi-gloss interior

 

In the privacy of my home

I like to put on womenÕs clothes

ItÕs true, IÕm one of them

I am a closet femme, yes I am

Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohÉ.

 

Sometimes when IÕm home alone

I throw on one of those full-length slips

I rip my socks and shoes off

And apply some pink lipstick

 

I wear my black mascara for flair

My favourite eye shadow if I dare

And, if IÕm feeling in the mood

I even put on a little rouge

 

In the privacy of my home

I like to put on womenÕs clothes

ItÕs true, IÕm one of them

I am a closet femme

 

Bridge:

When I first came out, I had something to prove

So I bought myself some second-hand army boots

I gave my girlie clothes to Sally Ann

And now, turns out IÕm a closet femme

Yes, I amÉ.oh, oh, oh, oh, ohÉ

 

(Breakdown)

ThereÕs a lot of hair product that I have

Stashed away in my bathroom drawer

Including a can of hairspray

Cuz you know, I used to be an eighties babe

 

And when I go on holidays out of town

I pack my jeans and boy button-downs 

But my makeup bag and the ten pairs of shoes

They take up the most room

 

Now, my profile needs diversifying

Revitalizing and glorifying

Gonna get some fishnets and corsets

And show off my assets

 

So maybe just for fun today

IÕll try on some new lingerie

I could get away with wearing that under my clothes

No-one would ever know

 

In the privacy of my home

I like to put on womenÕs clothes

Yes, itÕs true, IÕm one of them

I am a closet femme, yes I am, I am a closet femme-Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohÉ.
