If You Wear That Velvet Dress Lyrics

Found On:

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"If You Wear That Velvet Dress" (Jools Holland version)

"I am not sure the best version ended up on the album. The same could be said of 'If You Wear That Velvet Dress.' It wanted to be a lounge classic. It ended up in an airport lounge as background noise." - Bono, U2 By U2 2006

Tonight the moon is playing tricks again
I'm feeling seasick again
The world could just dissolve
Into a glass of water
I've been good
'Cause I know you don't want me to
Do you really want me to be blue as you
It's her daylight that gets me through
We've been here before
Last time you scratched at my door
Moon was naked and cold
I was like a two year old
Who just wanted more

If you wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
Wear that velvet dress

Tonight the moon has drawn its curtains
It's a private show
No one else gonna know I'm wanting
It's okay
The struggle for things not to say
I never listened to you anyway
And I got my own hands to pray

But if you wear that velvet dress
If you wear, if you wear that velvet dress
Wear that velvet dress

I say
Hold me baby
Hush now
Hold me baby
I�m crying out loud
You showed me baby
Just what to do
I�ve got the whole night
Then we�re through

Tonight the moon is a mirrorball
Light flickers from across the hall
Who'll catch the star when it falls
I said

Wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
Wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
Wear that velvet dress
If you wear that velvet dress
You wear that velvet dress

I�m sorry

(This song features Bono on lead vocals and is performed by the Jules Holland Band)
