Over the railway lines
Under the bridge
Where we met first time
I'm coming across town
Walking to your house

Yesterday weighs you down
O lonely girl won't you come on out
I swear it'll be alright
On this holy night

Chorus:
Put on your red dress baby
And wear your smile
Say goodnight to your sister
We're gonna walk for miles
We'll go where the boats are leaving
In St. George's Bay
And when I look into your eyes
There's one thing that I can say
No one loves you this way
So put on your red dress baby
And one more time
Let me see you smile

There's the abandoned train
Where we sheltered from the rain
Somehow I knew someday
We'd come here again

Chorus:
Put on your red dress baby
And wear your smile
Say goodnight to your sister
We're gonna walk for miles
We'll go where the boats are leaving
In St. George's Bay
And when I look into your eyes
There's one thing that I can say
No one loves you this way
So put on your red dress baby
And one more time
Let me see you smile

Here on this empty road
We stare at ourselves
In a shop window
Funny we seem so right
On this holy night

Chorus:
So put on your red dress baby
And wear your smile
Close the door right behind you
We're gonna walk for miles
We'll go where the boats are leaving
In St. George's Bay
And recall the tenderness
As we sit by the waterside
O I can never forget
That I was the man who let you
Slip out of his life
So put on your red dress baby
And let me one more time
Make you smile tonight
