Summer Dress Lyrics

Artist: Shawn Colvin
Album: These Four Walls

summer dress (by shawn colvin)

put on my fine summer dress
so light and thin, it was my best
i brushed my hair, held my breath
i went out to face the wilderness
i went out to face the wilderness

men in hats, boys on bikes
perfect girls, baby dykes
superstars, blighted ones
i went out to face one by one
i went out to face them one by one

i said goodbye mary ann, as you turned to watch me
don't try, mary ann, don't try to stop me

'cause i'm gonna go where flights are bright
where sacred secrets sail like kites
we've been sleeping girl all our lives
and we never lived, we just survived
we never lived, we just survived

i'll take my heart, take my key
i'll find out who could care for me
are there pots of gold, are there floods and fires
are there thieves and beggars, saints and liars
are there thieves and beggars, saints and liars

and so goodbye, mary ann, as you turn to watch me
don't try, mary ann, don't try to stop me

i put on my fine summer dress
so light and thin, torn up the chest
i brushed my hair, held my breath
i went out to face the wilderness
i went out to face the wilderness

mary ann, mary ann, don't cry, don't cry
mary ann
