Little Black Dress Lyrics

by Sara Bareilles

Okay,
I can see it now it's all the same thing
Just different wrapping around it
No need,
To soften your words
They're still gonna hurt
So don't pull punches
I tried, to be everything you'd ever want and sometimes
I even stood on my heart and stomped now I'm
Finally alone and dressed for the show
But going nowhere

They don't need to see me crying

I'll get my little black dress on
And if I put on my favorite song
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone
I'll get my little black dress on

You came
Lifted me up but then you dropped a hurricane
Now I'm fighting to find the ground again,
To steady my feet
Get up off my knees and just remember that I am
More than just somebody's puppet I can
Find the cord and then I'll cut it I stand
A pretty good chance to dust myself off and dance

I'll get my little black dress on
And if I put on my favorite song
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone
I'll get my little black dress on
I got my little black dress on
And if I tell myself that nothing's wrong
This doesn't have to be a sad song
Not with my little black dress on

It's time to connect the dots
And draw a different picture up
And paint you with the colors of
Everything I ever was
Return to the scene of the crime,
The day I let the music die
And rewrite the final lines 'cause this time I

I'll get my little black dress on
And if I put on my favorite song
I'm gonna dance until you're all gone
I'll get my little black dress on
I got my little black dress on
And if I tell myself that nothing's wrong
This doesn't have to be a sad song
Not with my little black dress on
