My Crime of Passion Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Words of warning took me by surprise
From a voice I hardly recognized
Well my heart was beating faster
And my blood ran hot and cold
I was heading for disaster
When suddenly I realized that I had lost control
Verse 2
Loaded questions played upon my mind
Allegations I could not deny
Well my mind was in confusion
Had my back against the wall
I'd been led into collusion
Before I realized I was a victim of it all
Verse 0
[Chorus]
Here's to my crime of passion
I can't forget the look upon your face
And to your tender mercies
Goodbye to all the innocence we never can replace
Verse 3
All of Sunday sittin' by the telephone
Not a whisper, well I should have known
But it seems that I'd insisted
'Cause in spite of all you said
I believe my words were twisted
As line by line the promises were spinning round my head
Verse 4
Waves of anger slowly do recede
To faded memories that I'll never need
But my mind keeps on returning to the way it used to be
There's a flame forever burning
There's nothing I can say to you will ever make you see
Verse 5
Here's to my crime of passion
I just can't seem to shake it off my mind
As for your tender mercy
I'll never stop regretting that I left it all behind
