"The Black Dress" as written by Simon Wilcox, Mike Green, Seth Trotter, Jason Centeno, Robert Ragan and Doug Mccarthy....
You don't know what you're doing
You look like a student with a pencil in your ponytail
Excuse me for staring
At the light iradescent color of your fingernails

Well I think the situation's wrong
But you totally turn me on
It's unusually hard for me
To just let you be

Lady in the black dress
You shouldn't sit so close to me
Cause I could take advantage
Of a soul so vulnerable, soft, and sweet
We could dive right in
Into the deep
But when we come up you might feel empty
Lady in the black dress
You'll never sit so close to me

I don't know what I'm doing
This lust is confusing
How do I explain myself?
Such a beautiful sadness behind her own lashes
Those eyes are calling out for help

And I think the situation's wrong
But you totally turn me on
It's unusually hard for me
To just let you be

Lady in the black dress
You shouldn't sit so close to me
Cause I could take advantage
Of a soul so vulnerable, soft, and sweet
We could dive right in
Into the deep
But when we come up you might feel empty
Lady in the black dress
You'll never sit so close to me again

This morning's laid to rest
The casket has been sealed and blessed
The day is gone
His widow noticed me
Looking at you, she said
"Don't you let love leave and get away
So let's seize the day"

Lady in the black dress
You shouldn't sit so close to me
Cause I could take advantage
Of a soul so vulnerable, soft, and sweet
We could dive right in
Into the deep
But when we come up you might feel empty
Lady in the black dress
You'll never sit so close to me again

Lady in the black dress (lady in the black dress)
You shouldn't sit so close to me
Cause I could take advantage (I could take advantage)
Of a soul so vulnerable, soft, and sweet

    General CommentYou can kinda tell from the title, but I think it's about a guy being turned on and wanting the widow at a funeral he's at
