Black Dress Lyrics
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
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.
