If Love is A Red Dress...

...well hang me in rags.

This set of images is based on the song by Marie McKee. It is raw, emotive, explosive. My vision was made complete with Jadyne as model and Erica Elisha as the makeup artist. They both really nailed what I was going after. Go listen to the song if you haven't heard it. It is beautifully sang and so well done.

My heart is empty.
Your eyes are dark.
Once we were hungry,
Now we are full.
These chains that bind us,
Can't beat these chains.
If love is shelter,
I'm gonna walk in the rain.

You were my angel.
Now, you are real.
So like a stranger,
Colder than steel.
The morning after,
You know what you bring.
If love is a red dress,
Well, hang me in rags.

There goes the fairy tale.
Lord, ain't it a shame?
In all this comfort,
I can't take the strain.

If we played even,
I'd be your queen.
But someone was cheatin'.
And it wasn't me.
I've laid it on the table,
You had something back.
If love is Aces,
Give me the Jack.
