Black Dress

Lyrics and melody written by Anna Madsen Jefferies. All rights reserved. 

It's Saturday night, the thunder's screaming my name. The lights went out and I'll I've got is the glow by the window pane. Tears are tracing out my shadow, I've got memories I can borrow, let the candles light my face tonight. I'm zipping up my black dress on in the dark. I'm zipping up my black dress on in the dark. Long ghostly lashes, rosy lips, I'm looking for a distraction, I'm zipping up my black dress on in the dark. I'm feeling the night, my lover's screaming my name. I whisper curse words in his ear as we fuck by the window pane. Mirrors are echoing our faces, darling I can take you places, doesn't mean our love's forevermore. I'm taking my black dress off in the dark. I'm taking my black dress off in the dark. Long ghostly lashes, rosy lips, I think I found a distraction, I'm taking my black dress off in the dark. Black lace, you're touching my face. Do I have to tell you that you're a phase? Black velvet, I know you wanna have it, but not this time. I'm zipping up my black dress on in the dark. I'm zipping up my black dress on in the dark. My red lips sting from all these lies, I want to be alone tonight. I'm zipping up my black dress on in the dark.
