lyrics

What a pretty little dress you wear,
it draws the eye and flatters your figure;
It covers your heart
and the dirty marks you see in the mirror

None of them can see past the lace and plunging neckline
You say it’s all behind you now but it follows like a shadow
You’ve plunged into reasoning
You might not find the bottom
You’ve given up sensibility
And you’re hung up on denial

How many men will remove your little dress
before you realize you’re hiding under a stranger’s naked body?
How many secrets will you let your heart protest
before you finally undress and scrub their fingerprints from your naked body?

They’ll whisper anything you want to hear
They’ll even carry you to bed
They’ll remark, ‘How stunning you are darling-
don’t struggle with your conscience dear, untangle your dress in the morning-‘

What a pretty little dress you wear,
do you have a sense of belonging?
Every time you leave
You leave yourself behind
Your dress is dragging

None of them can see-
past the torn hem and falling sequins
You say it’s all behind you now but it’s dragging like a shadow
You’ve given up on reasoning
You might have found your bottom
You’ve given up sensibility
and you’re hanging up denial

How many men will remove my little dress
before I realize I’m hiding under my faultless body?
