Tracey Thorn – Long White Dress lyrics

Matthew was a wised-up kid
He found out everything
Before the rest of us did
He said, "I don't think
That you have to be married"

And I don't know why I felt so scared
I just knew I didn't want to wear
The long white dress
Long white dress

Jackie was the first to hide
Kept all of his better feelings inside
He said, "I know I love you, but
I can't decide"

And tucked away in some back bed
Like a ghost of something dead
Long white dress
Long white dress

I know I'm not an independent woman
So you might say, "Well, really
What's the difference?"
Is it all in my head?
Is it all in my head?
Is it all in my head?

I was a romantic kid
I found myself a torch
And a book and I hid
And nothing ever scared me like
A wedding did

And I filled my head with so much shit
And I dreamed and I dreamed of it
Of love and it's opposite

Long white dress
Long white dress
Long white dress
Long white dress
