She's a Lady in Red (Lyrics) by Andrea Lynn Cianflone


​“Hello,” the girl says to the man walking her way

“It’s been awhile, can I talk to you today?”

Standing to his right, he turns to the lady

Asking permission to talk to his teenage baby…


“He’s got an empty closet,” she tells her mother,

‘Dad just left with the help of another,

Gripping to a wall, her Mamma breaks down into tears,

This faithful woman who stood by him for years.


She’s a Lady in Red, a charmer indeed

Whose actions left a family to bleed.

She’s a Lady in Red, admiring her reflection in the pond,

But she doesn’t have the power to break the family bond…

…cause she’s just a Lady in Red.


A suitcase, few dollars, living off a dream and a brand new start,

Escaping to a city, sadness written all over her heart.

The Lady in Red has blood on her hands,

For having put a child through such adult demands,


She’s a Lady in Red, a charmer indeed,

Whose actions left a family to bleed.

She’s a Lady in Red, admiring her reflection in the pond,

But she doesn’t have the power to break the family bond…

…cause she’s just a Lady in Red.


Where’s the justice and remorse for bringing on such pain,

When a fatherless child’s scars still remain.


Her Dad waits for the doctor results,

He ponders the years of his failings and faults.

He chose the Lady in Red, a common tale,

And traded in a love that will never fail.

She’s a Lady in Red, a charmer indeed

Whose actions left a family to bleed.

She’s a Lady in Red, admiring her reflection in the pond,

But she doesn’t have the power to break the family bond…

…cause she’s just a Lady in Red.
