Faded
from the wrinkled-dress department.

Music: Treble Charger - Red (lyrics below)

saw you lookin' for a light
face painted cigarette white
you asked the cleanest boy you found
you couldn't see me turned around
his fingers stretched across your empty gaze,
that i just can't escape

as the red fades from your wrinkled dress
a picture of the people you've impressed
hangs on a wall around here
vision starts to crawl when i'm near
and the evening waits,
while you get caught-up to your own mistakes
made up of different lines
i wouldn't want to keep in my mind

i wondered why you'd come around
remembering your little girl frown
your answers kept the crowd at bay
with compliments i'm willing to pay
i have some things i'd like to say to you
but they just can't be true

as the red fades from your wrinkled dress
a picture of the people you've impressed
hangs on a wall around here
vision starts to crawl when i'm near
and the evening waits,
while you get caught-up to your own mistakes
made up of different lines
i wouldn't want to keep in my mind
