the  crime of the century 
was letting you do 
what you did to me
the scene of the crime
was wrapped in your arms
you left your fingerprints 
on the walls of my heart

the crime of the century
was that I accepted 
moments stolen with you
ransoming emotions  
with the counterfeit treasure 
of a kiss so sweet
it should have been a felony

the crime of the century
was running to your side 
I am now a fugitive of love
a hostage to your dreams
two lovers forever on the run   
looking for you to return
to the scene of the crime
