​Emotional Crime

This song is by Rainbow and appears on the album Stranger in Us All (1995).

I can't get through in the midnight hour
All you wanted is to scream and shout
Do me a favour don't slam the door
Don't be coming around here any more
Tried to change my whole life with a wave of your hand
I'm going to tell you baby so you'll understand
I'm tired and weary of a love gone cold
I'm sick and tired of doing what I'm told
You're giving me pain you're driving me out of my mind
It's emotional crime

Watch you get so crazy over little things
And I get nervous when the telephone rings
You try to chain me but I won't be bound
It's only dirty love keeps me around
It's only your good love keeps me around
You're ringing my bell my life is hell
Just killing time you're driving me out of my mind

I finally got through by the midnight hour
And you still wanted to scream and shout
You can live your own life let me live mine
You might be an angel but you ain't divine
Why don't you waste your own time don't waste mine
Telling you babe you ain't no friend of mine
