lyrics

Does it ever bother you the way he never seems to care
or feign an interest in the things you loved before you met?
Does it ever bother you the way he picks out what you'll wear
for these occasions so that you can make a perfect set?
This used to be the place where you could feel most free
But now you're an accessory
You're a sidekick, you're refrigerator bound
But you can't help wanting him around

Cuz it's a cosplay, it's a secret identity
You don't wanna be yourself
You're thinking maybe it's the wrong way
to get somebody to love you
And at the end of a long day you'll know it isn't quite right
Cuz you can't sleep in something so bright and skintight
It's okay to show what's under the costume

You met him at a summer con. Such divine providence, he claimed!
He wore a purple suit and you were dressed as Harley Quinn
Remember how it turned you on the way he called you by her name
up in the hotel suites, tangled up in checkered sheets?
It wasn't all that much later that you felt so lost
He liked you best as Emma Frost
His ruby-covered eyes could not resist
It makes you wonder if you still exist

Cuz it's a cosplay, it's a secret identity
You don't wanna be yourself
You're thinking maybe it's the wrong way
to get somebody to love you
And at the end of a long day you'll know it isn't quite right
Cuz you can't sleep in something so bright and skintight
It's okay to show what's under the costume
Won't you show me?

So bright and skintight
