Crime Of Passion

This song is by Bonnie Raitt and appears on the album Nine Lives (1986).

My body is the only place
Where we meet anymore
Thought that I could handle the heartache
Like I did before
I remember your warning
To never mention love
A little crime of passion
Is what I'm guilty of

There were no witnesses
Just the candlelight
Glowin' as your sweetness awakened
Every warm delight

Show me some mercy
What a fool I have become
A little crime of passion
That's what I'm sufferin' from

Kisses ago it was so easy
Dreams we shared together faded to forever
And I just don't wear despair very well
I can tell

Now it's such a painful time
And I'm too far gone
Where are all the clever defenses
I depended on?

How could I be so crazy
To believe all the things you say?
A little crime of passion
Is takin' my breath away

Show me some mercy
What a fool I've become
A little crime of passion
That's what I'm sufferin' from

Baby, oh, just a little crime of passion
What I'm sufferin' from
What I'm sufferin' from
What I'm sufferin' from
Oh, just a little crime of passion
Is what I'm sufferin' from
