Black shirt and a red dress
Pressed together chest to chest
Firelight under moonlight
A sight that sets the mood right
And as the violins began to pluck
I said, this is romantic as fuck

When I was young, I thought romance
Was a whispered word and a stolen glance
I grew older, desire grew bolder
And my heart grew colder like a moon on the wane
Soft affections
Were tossed on a heap of rejections
The ardor I sought was harder
And I got no kick from champagne

Now a black shirt and a red dress
Are pressed together chest to chest
While my younger self would simply cluck
I think, this is romantic as fuck

Before I met you, I used romance
To toy like a cat with women’s innocence
I was jaded, I felt fated
To wait with breath bated for all of my days
But with one dance
You moved me to think I had a chance
To rekindle my faith in romance
And one spark turned into a blaze

Now a black shirt and a red dress
On the floor like a lovebird’s nest
Night sighs with the sunrise
Finally, we two close our eyes
And as my heartstrings feel one last pluck
I whisper, that was romantic as fuck
