my sister’s dress lyrics – her six daughters

grateful as an orphan
invited to the ball
i seduced your picture
there up on my wall
i borrowed without asking
i kept without regret
we drove that truck backwards
down twisting turning roads
i whispered family secrets
no one should ever know
i wanted you so badly
i had to confess
she’d never do the things i did
in my sister’s dress
(chorus)
in my sister’s dress
i felt free and rotten through and through
i’m a sinner blessed
laid out across the hood
in my sister’s dress
the shoes i bought at woolworths
were two inches too tall
twisted my foot in gravel
you did not let me fall
i pulled that hem to mid-thigh
she never would have guessed
all the fun i had that night
in my sister’s dress
(chorus)
instrumental
(chorus)
in my sister’s dress
i felt free and rotten through and through
i’m a sinner bless
laid out across the hood
i had no regrets
lost everything i could
in my sister’s dress
