of crime and passion
why did you let me run 
when you knew i'd fall for the gaping hole 
where your heart should be 
liar - couldn't cut me deeper with a knife if you tried 
just take a look (before you run off and hide) 
at your victim 
arise 

clouds on you shoulder 
aren't they grazed by the afterglow 
how quiet they gather 
when the storm is about to blow 

no don't look away 
caught in the crossfire 
and it ain't no wind of change 
i'm talking of crime and passion's rage 

summer of madness or the undertow 
dragged me up an alley for the blossoming fire 
on a stranger's smile 
bride of wire - how disguise so easily cracked 
saw your heart turn spade 
this orchid's turned to black 

graze on your shoulder 
like the clouds in the afterglow 
how quiet they gather 
when  the storm is about to blow 

no don't look away 
caught in the crossfire 
and it ain't no wind of change 
i'm talking of crime and passion's rage 

way down by the shoulder 
in the haze of the afterglow 
stranded together 
and the storm is about to blow
