The Spill Canvas Lyrics

8. Black Dresses In The Dirt



In muddy grass we stand side by side 
With our knuckles interlocked 
Black dresses flood the cemetery 
In this cliche tragedy 

Just do as you're instructed and.... 
Take this razor and cut your palms 
I'll do the same until a river of crimson begins to flow 
Now drip your ruby red over the casket 
A funeral for my once loved youth 

My secret is fatally gorgeous 
I'd die for you 
But in this Bonnie and Clyde kind of romance 
Tell me what would you do? 
My secret is fatally gorgeous 
I'd die for you 
But when your precious life is at stake 
Tell me would you die for me too? 

The quivering liquids in your stomach 
Will eat away at the bad habits that have made you 
A real character in the story of your now distant life 
Goodnight and goodbye, quickly 

In gentle greens we stand side by side 
With your head buried in my chest 
Black veils send me shivering 
The fear that part of me is dying 

Just do as you're instructed and.... 
Take this razor and cut your palms 
I'll do the same until a river of crimson begins to flow 
Now drip your ruby red over the casket 
A funeral for my once loved youth 

My secret is fatally gorgeous 
I'd die for you 
But in this Bonnie and Clyde kind of romance 
Tell me what would you do? 
My secret is fatally gorgeous 
I'd die for you 
But when your precious life is at stake 
Tell me would you die for me too? 

The quivering liquids in your stomach 
Will eat away at the bad habits that have made you 
A real character in the story of your now distant life 
Goodnight and goodbye, quickly, quickly 

Goodbyes are said and roses thrown 
And the crowd starts to weep 
But the irony of the story is when I fell to my knees 
And began clawing at the dirt in front of the tombstone 
Of my bashful childhood 
With you by my side, you're screaming at the 
Top of your lungs, "let it go" 
And I'm screaming at the top of my lungs 
"The ceremony was not proper, there was not enough people, 
And who picked the music? 
Those melodies almost made me physically sick" 

My secret is fatally gorgeous 
I'd die for you 
But in this Bonnie and Clyde kind of romance 
Tell me what would you do? 
My secret is fatally gorgeous 
I'd die for you 
But when your precious life is at stake 
Tell me would you die for me too? 

The quivering liquids in your stomach 
Will eat away at the bad habits that have made you 
A real character in the story of your now distant life 
Goodnight and goodbye, quickly 
Goodnight and goodbye, quickly
