The Dark Dresses Lightly Song Lyrics

[Intro: Aurora]
Oh-oh
Oh-oh
Oh-oh

[Verse 1: Aurora]
As I pour out my story
Drink me up, there is wine in every word
Here's to us now, my dear
We're being strong now
And the dark dresses lightly
Razor sharp as it cuts right through my soul
Here's to us now, my dear
It took too long

[Pre-Chorus: Aurora]
Guess I shouldn't have kept the knife in my heart for so long
Guess I shouldn't have held back when I needed you to know
Guess I shouldn't have kept the knife in my heart for so long
Guess I shouldn't have held back when I needed you to know

[Chorus: Aurora]
Oh, oh, I just want to cry
Oh, oh, with you tonight
Oh, oh, it's perfectly finе
To grieve the hurt that's gonna diе

[Post-Chorus: Aurora]
Oh-oh
Oh-oh

[Verse 2: Aurora]
Let us dance to our sorrow
Make amends, there's so much you still don't know
Here's to us now, my dear
We're going deep now
All this fear, it's contagious
Now we're here, let our glasses overflow
Here's to us now, my dear
It took too long

[Pre-Chorus: Aurora]
Guess I shouldn't have kept the knife in my heart for so long
Guess I shouldn't have held back when I needed you to know
Guess I shouldn't have kept the knife in my heart for so long
Guess I shouldn't have held back when I needed you to know

[Chorus: Aurora]
Oh, oh, I just want to cry
Oh, oh, with you tonight
Oh, oh, it's perfectly fine
To grieve the hurt that's gonna die

[Post-Chorus: Aurora]
Oh-oh
Oh, oh, oh, can you feel it? (Oh-oh)
Mm, yeah, mm, yeah
Let me feel it (Oh-oh)
Louder, louder (Oh-oh)
Louder, louder
Louder (Oh-oh)

[Outro: Aurora]
To the river, to the water
Where the floodgates are wide open
And the tower has fallen onto you
Let me feel it, darling, darling, darling
(To the river, to the water)
Let me feel it, darling, darling, darling
(Where the floodgates are wide open)
Let me feel it, darling, darling, darling
(And the tower has fallen onto you)
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
