If You Wear That Velvet Dress Lyrics

by U2

Tonight the moon is playing tricks again
I'm feeling sea sick again
The whole world could just dissolve
Into a glass of water

I've been good 'cause I know you don't want me to
Do you really want me to be blue as you?
It's her daylight that gets me through

We've been here before
Last time you scratched at my door
The moon was naked and cold
I was like a two year old
Just wanted more

If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress

Tonight the moon has drawn its curtains
It's a private show
No one else gonna to know
I want you

So you feel okay?
Are you sure it's okay?
'Cause I want some more

Sunlight, sunlight fills my room
It's sharp and it's clear
But nothing at all like the moon

It's okay, the struggle for things not to say
I never listened to you anyway
And I got my own hands to pray

But if you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
But if you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress

Tonight the moon is a mirror ball
Light flickers from across the hall
Who'll catch the star when he fall

If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
