Black Dress Lyrics
Black Dress
Black hair
Black eyes
Blank stare

And since such a bright mood is set
The blackness makes you a silhouette

But what kind of heartless darkness do you conceal?
Is it your deepest secret you won’t reveal?
Is it a mystery, a misery that just won’t heal?
And eats you up while we share this meal

Wet eyes
Solemn words
Heavy hearts
Are heard

But since we hardly met
To me your memory’s only a silhouette

But what kind of heartless darkness was concealed?
Was it your deepest secret never to be revealed?
Was it a mystery, a misery that never healed?
And haunts us now that your coffin’s sealed

One Thanksgiving my family had a guest over who I’d never met before. She had dark black hair, very dark eyes, and was wearing a black dress. She was soundless throughout dinner. A couple years later we heard the news that she killed herself. I can only hope she made the right decision for herself. This song is for her.
