AMANDA MCBROOM lyrics - Crimes Of The Heart

AMANDA MCBROOM
"Crimes Of The Heart"
(Amanda McBroom)

We were drinking whiskey, we were talking men
She'd never see the sunny side of forty-two again
She was in love with a boy of twenty-nine
This was something new, what could she do
What should she do?

She made her burn like fire, made her drunk like wine
No one else had loved her oh, for such a long, long time
She was afraid it was moving way too fast, the die was cast
How could this last?

It was a crime of the heart
We all know that love's insane form the start
Where there's passion, there is pain
What do we gain, committing crimes of the heart

He was crazy jealous of everyone she met
Suspicious of the little things that hadn't happened yet
He devoured every minute of her time, she didn't mind
After all, young love's always blind

It was a crime of the heart
We all know that love's insane form the start
Where there's passion, there is pain
What do we gain, committing crimes of the heart

Funny how tomorrows turn into yesterdays
Funny how a mirror never lies
Somehow the hands of time turn back the other way
Every time I look into his eyes
The night was half-past over, time for going home
She said she'd rather walk, she needed time to be alone
When you're living your love from day to day
Sometimes tomorrow
Is the price you have to pay
For these crimes of the heart

We all know that love's insane form the start
Where there's passion, there is pain
And love is what we gain, committing crimes of the heart
