Love Should Be a Crime

Play Video
  • Words like love & happiness
    Never seem to stand up baby
    When you put 'em to the test, yea
    You say that you're a poet,
    That your life's a work of art
    But you can't play love by numbers baby
    Gotta play it all by heart

    Baby Baby Baby Baby
    It happens all the time
    How you play me, play me, play me
    Playing with my mind
    Baby Baby Baby Baby
    You're making me go crazy
    If you call that love, love should be a crime

    Honesty bites the dust
    Everytime I hear you saying love is never lust, yea
    Did you read it in a book
    Did you see it in a magazine
    Do you think that I'm some new age fool
    Do you think I'm so naive

    Baby Baby Baby Baby
    It happens all the time
    How you play me, play me, play me
    Playing with my mind
    Baby Baby Baby Baby
    You're making me go crazy
    If you call that love, love should be a crime

    You and me, suddenly
    We got nothing to say (We got nothing to say)
    But the words get in the way

    Baby Baby Baby Baby
    It happens all the time
    How you play me, play me, play me
    Playing with my mind
    Baby Baby Baby Baby
    You're making me go crazy
    And if you call that love
    Then all it was was a pocket full of nothing but a suicidal love
    If you call that love, then love should be a... crime Writer/s: GREGG W. SUTTON, DESMOND CHILD, JESSE JAMES DUPREE
