lyrics

Blue Vintage Dress

I kept that stone that you gave me
on the night we danced together
Polished flat and smooth
in some Yukon river
And it was good to dance
above the bar, out of the weather
before sunrise, in a small room

CHORUS:
I know the kind of lonely man you are
Playing lovers like you play guitar
But I confess
I knew what I was doing
in that blue vintage dress
Before sunrise, in a small room

Now I rarely trust a man
in a fedora or a vest
but every man wore one
and it seemed you wore it best
It was good to drink cheap wine
and put our limits to the test
Before sunrise, in a small room

CHORUS

He falls for a song
She falls for his arms
They have a taste for whiskey in common
I’ve heard this one before
Been danced ‘round this floor
Sometimes a girl wants a love that feels common

You thanked me half a dozen times
as I headed to leave
You didn’t say you’d call
Didn’t bother to deceive
Well, it was good to hold you
And it was good to leave
before sunrise, in a small room

CHORUS
