  • This may come, this may come as some surprise
    but I miss you
    I could see through, all of your lies
    But I stll miss you
    He takes her love, but it doesn't feel like mine
    He tastes her kiss, her kisses are not wine, they're not mine
    He takes, but surely she can't give what I'm feeling now
    She takes, but surely she doesn't know how

    Is it a crime?
    Is it a crime
    That I still want you
    And I want you to want me too ?

    My love is wider, wider than Victoria Lake
    My love is taller, taller than the Empire State

    It dives and it jumps and it ripples like the deepest ocean
    I can't give you more than that, surely you want me back

    Is it a crime?
    Is it a crime
    That I still want you
    And I want you to want me too ?

    My love is wider than Victoria Lake
    Taller than the Empire State
    It dives and it jumps
    I can't give you more than that, surely you want me back

    Is it a crime?
    Is it a crime
    That I still want you
    And I want you to want me too ?

    It dives and it jumps
    And it ripples like the deepest Ocean
    I can't give you more than that
    Surely you want me back

    Tell me
    Is it a crime?
