Red Dress

lyrics

Song Concept: A unique love story where a man becomes captivated by a woman who he's just seen for the first time, and all he desires is to have one dance with her.

Verse 1:
Once upon a night
Upon a fading sun
A steady pace to some
But in truth longing to be undone
It’s kind of like being in doors during a storm
Viewing through window panes
But missing the feel of the rain
As it pours down
Such a soothing sound
I just need something more now
I just need to let it all out
Cover ground to new heights
Where passion engulfs me like a light
That’s a life
That’s when she came in sight
As when lightning strikes
You’re filled with an awe
And this glorious form
It moves you along
And it moves you to song

And that dress she had on was like a red dawn

Ooh she had a red dress on

The color of a red dawn

Verse 2:
Just to watch you dance

Eyes open wide
Lust put aside
I’m seeing for the first time

Just to watch you dance

Just to watch you dance
Just to watch you move
Brings purpose and it soothes

Just to watch you dance

I don’t need your name
I don’t number or need you to feel the same

Just to watch you dance
It made me say wow

One word

Called out loud

Simple yet so complex
I feel it in my chest

It made me say wow

Chorus
She had a red dress on
Man she looked so good
She had a red dress on
She looked so good
She had a red dress on
She had a red dress on

Verse 3:
Following the heart’s desire
I step up onto the floor
Before I walk away
I’m determined to let it soar
So I risk it all
Ending this moment is what I chance
But there’s no way I’m leaving this place without a dance
I don’t want romance
I just want to have your opposite stance
Feeling enhanced to inspire trance
Need another sense of her dress
One word can only express
Simple and complex
I feel it in my chest

Outtro:
Oh wow
And I said wow
Ooh she had that red dress on

The color of a red dawn

Got so much style baby
That red dress was killing me

The color of a red dawn

I said wow to that red dress
I knew I would be alright if I just dance
