Verse 1

Tell me to stop

Tell me to drop

The gun I've pointed at my heart again.

Tell me I'm mad

Tell me he's bad

And he's gonna bring me much more pain.

Pre chorus 1

Cause I can't stop painting pretty pictures in my mind.

I ain't supposed to be a girl who does that after all this time.

I know nothing about him or what he even thinks of me,

But when I close my eyes at night now, here's all that I can see.

Chorus

A bright red dress that I despise,

Except I don't really, and he says I look nice.

A bright red smile that I've long lost,

Comes back to me in a room that he's across.

A bright red blush across my cheeks,

When we exchange glances and my knees go weak.

A bright red heart posted on his door,

I see my future, I don't wanna wait anymore.

Verse 2

Remind me I'm broken

Remind me of the tokens

I've kept of all the romances that always went wrong.

Remind me I'm older,

Remind me I'm colder,

I can't wear my heart on my sleeve, I must stay strong.

Pre chorus 2

But I can't stop thinking of the life that we can build.

It's like the bandage just fell off and all my scars have healed.

I'm terrified how I don't know how the future's gonna be.

But when I have a free moment now, here's all that I can see.

Chorus

A bright red dress that I despise,

Except I don't really, and he says I look nice.

A bright red smile that I've long lost,

Comes back to me in a room that he's across.

A bright red blush across my cheeks,

When we exchange glances and my knees go weak.

A bright red heart posted on his door,

I see my future, I don't wanna wait anymore.

Bridge

This is premature, this is fantasy,

This is everything that once used to be me.

Thought I'd grown out of it, like I grew out of my old clothes.

Guess I was mistaken, guess I will have to break my oath.

Cause this is everything that is now me.

And every single moment, here's all that I can see.

Chorus

A bright red dress that I despise,

Except I don't really, and he says I look nice.

A bright red smile that I've long lost,

Comes back to me in a room that he's across.

A bright red blush across my cheeks,

When we exchange glances and my knees go weak.

A bright red heart posted on his door,

I see my future, I don't wanna wait anymore.
