Dressed In Black lyrics

I had given upI didn’t know who to trustOh oh
So I designed a shell
Kept me from heaven and hell
Oh oh
And I had hit a low
Was all I let myself know, yeah
Yeah I had locked life out
I was imprisoned by doubt

You found me dressed in black
Hiding with a battered back
Life had broken my heart into pieces
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking down my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought life'd passed me by
Released my tears ignored my pride
Life had broken my heart, my spirit
And then you crossed my path
You quelled my fears, you made me laugh
Then you covered my heart in kisses

I was down for the count
yes I was down I was out
Oh oh
And I had last it all
Cause I was scared I was torn
And I took to the night
I'd given into the fire
Oh oh
And I slipped further down
Yeah I felt like I am drawn

You found me dressed in black
Hiding with a battered back
Life had broken my heart into pieces
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking down my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought life'd passed me by
Released my tears ignored my pride
Life had broken my heart, my spirit
And then you crossed my path
You quelled my fears, you made me laugh
Then you covered my heart in kisses

I was hopeless
And broken, you opened the door for me
Yeah I was hiding
And you let the light in and now I see
That you do for the wounded
What they couldn’t seem to
You set them free
Like a butterfly
Kissing a child with an eye for the minor key

You found me dressed in black
Hiding with a battered back
Life had broken my heart into pieces
You took my hand in yours
You started breaking down my walls
And you covered my heart in kisses
I thought life'd passed me by
Released my tears ignored my pride
Life had broken my heart, my spirit
And then you crossed my path
You quelled my fears, you made me laugh, then you covered my heart in kisses
