Your father sat with the night's first drink Your mother washed the dishes in the sink You stood on the steps, wearing your best One red rose on a new black dress When we walked under the powerlines I dreamed about it a thousand times You weren't like the rest One red rose on a new black dress [Chorus] One red rose on a new black dress Crushing it between our chests Tonight I'll wonder where you'll be One dead rose is all I see We hid in the weeds and we hid in the grass Listening to the cars on the highway pass Then you put me to the test One red rose on a new black dress [Chorus] Then you said we could never come back And walked awax through the housing tract Leaving me with what's left One red rose from a new black dress [Chorus]
