Lyrics

From the window in our bedroom you're looking toward the town
You don't seem to notice it's dark and all closed down
Where you're mind is going, I can only guess
Won't you take me with you in my low-backed dress?

'Cause I remember when you loved me
How you held me when you'd tell me
"Please, put on your pretty dress,
The one with the low back, yes."

In moments of our history, if you can recall
So much sweetness in the mystery, I recollect it all
But now our bitter battles push your silent stare out to darkness
Through the window and the reflection of my low-backed dress

But I remember when you loved me
How you held me when you'd tell me
"Please, put on your pretty dress,
The one with the low back, yes."

Baby, let me make tonight all that it used to be, step away from that
windowsill
Honey, if you'll just let me I can do that still

'Cause I still feel the way you moved me
How you loved me when you'd tell me
"Please, put on your pretty dress
The one with the low back"
Baby, I'm wearing my pretty dress
The one with the low back
Yeah, it's the one with the low back
The one with the low back, yes.
