Song of the Day #3,845: ‘This Perfect Dress’ – Maria McKee

This is the third song from Maria McKee’s Life is Sweet to pop up on Random Weekends. Given that this is the only album of hers I own, 12 songs in total, that’s statistically more significant than the fifth random White Stripes song posted yesterday.

Each time a song from this album has surfaced, I’ve had the same reaction, finding it edgier and more intriguing than I expected.

Never intriguing enough for me to listen to the rest of the album, though. My apologies to Ms. McKee.

You send me color
Pulled through the needle of you
Torn up I’m wearing it
What I wouldn’t give
To change the weather around you
I’m never cold
I’ll never cold

Chorus:
Lost as we spin
I’ll sew you in
This perfect dress
Skin of our skin

Woven our hands
Silk is our breath
Wear it for you
This perfect dress

This perfect room
This little death
Birth without womb
What I wouldn’t give

To tear riddle from riddle for you
But all I know
It’s all I know

Chorus

Lost as we spin
I’ll sew you in
This perfect dress
Skin of our skin

Woven our hands
Slik is our breath
Wear it for you
This perfect dress

    Looks like the Random iTunes Fairy is trying to tell you something!😊

    Is she the lead singer of a group? Blaming on it’s name… I used to like their sound, though. This is an artist I’ve completely forgotten about. Maybe the iTunes fairy is trying to rectify that.
