​The Black Dress

This song is by The Higher and appears on the album It's Only Natural (2009).

You don't know what you're doing
You look like a student with a pencil in your pony tail
Excuse me for staring at the light iridescent color of your fingernails
Well I think the situations wrong
But you totally turn me on
It's unusually hard for me to just let you be

Lady in the black dress
You shouldn't sit so close to me
'Cause I could take advantage
Of a soul so vulnerable, soft, and sweet
We could dive right in
Into the deep
But when we come up you might feel empty
And lady in the black dress
You'll never sit so close to me

I don't know what I'm doing
This lust is confusing how to I explain myself
Such a beautiful sadness behind her long lashes
Those eyes are crying out for help
And I think the situations wrong
But you totally turn me on
It's unusually hard for me to just let you be

Lady in the black dress
You shouldn't sit so close to me
'Cause I could take advantage
Of a soul so vulnerable, soft, and sweet
We could dive right in
Into the deep
But when we come up you might feel empty
And lady in the black dress
You'll never sit so close to me again

This mornings laid to rest
The casket has been sealed and blessed the day is gone
His widow noticed me
Looking at you she said
Don't you let love leave and get away
So let's cease the day

Lady in the black dress
You shouldn't sit so close to me
'Cause I could take advantage
Of a soul so vulnerable, soft, and sweet
We could dive right in
Into the deep
But when we come up you might feel empty
And lady in the black dress
You'll never sit so close to me again

Lady in the black dress (lady in the black dress)
You shouldn't sit so close to me
'Cause I could take advantage (I could take advantage)
Of a soul so soft and sweet
