  • I hear brand new talk
    Everywhere I go
    They got a new word
    For what we do
    When the lights get low
    And I hear my heart
    Beat black and blue
    Don't call it love
    It don't keep time
    For me and you
    And I don't call it love
    Waiting for the world to stop
    And I don't call it love
    Waiting for the world
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    Yeah down in my soul
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    Yeah down in my soul
    When the lights get low
    And the music's loud
    And the latest song is hot and cold
    'Til the stars go down
    And my blood runs cold
    And my hands just shake
    Got a heart like crime and a pretty face
    Ain't all it takes
    And I don't call it love
    Waiting for the world to stop
    And I don't call it love
    Waiting for the world
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    Yeah down in my soul
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    Yeah down in my soul
    I feel shock
    I don't call it love
    Waiting for the world to stop
    And I don't call it love
    Waiting for the world
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    Yeah down in my soul
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    When the world gets cold
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    Down in my soul
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    When the world gets cold
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    Yeah down in my soul
    I feel shock
    When the lights get low
    I got a heart like crime
    Down in my soul
    I feel shock Writer/s: JOHN ASHTON, RICHARD BUTLER, TIMOTHY BUTLER
