Lyrics

Is It a Crime
06:22
This may come, this may come as some surprise
but I miss you
I could see through, all of your lies
But I still miss you
He takes her love, but it doesn't feel like mine
He tastes her kiss, her kisses are not wine, they're not mine
He takes, but surely she can't give what I'm feeling now
She takes, but surely she doesn't know how

Is it a crime
Is it a crime
That I still want you
And I want you to want me too

My love is wider, wider than victoria lake
My love is taller, taller than the empire state

It dives and it jumps and it ripples like the deepest ocean
I can't give you more than that, surely you want me back

Is it a crime
Is it a crime
That I still want you
And I want you to want me too

My love is wider than victoria lake
Taller than the empire state
It dives and it jumps
I can't give you more than that, surely you want me back

Is it a crime
Is it a crime
That I still want you
And I want you to want me too

It dives and it jumps
And it ripples like the deepest Ocean
I can't give you more than that
Surely you want me back

Tell me
Is it a crime
The Sweetest Taboo
04:38
If I tell you
If I tell you now
Will you keep on
Will you keep on loving me
If I tell you
If I tell you how I feel
Will you keep bringing out the best in me
You give me, you give me the sweetest taboo
You give me, you're giving me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me

There's a quiet storm
And it never felt like this before
There's a quiet storm
That is you
There's a quiet storm
And it never felt this hot before
Giving me something that's taboo
(Sometimes I think you're just too good for me)

You give me the sweetest taboo
That's why I'm in love with you
You give me the sweetest taboo
Sometimes I think you're just too good for me

I'd do anything for you, I'd stand out in the rain
Anything you want me to do, don't let it slip away

There's a quiet storm
And it never felt like this before
There'a a quiet storm
I think it's you
There'a a quiet storm
And I never felt this hot before
Giving me something that's taboo

You give me the sweetest taboo
That's why I'm in love with you
You give me, you're giving me the sweetest taboo
Too good for me

You've got the biggest heart
Sometimes I think you're just too good for me
Every day is Christmas, and every night is new years eve

Will you keep on loving me
Will you keep on, will you keep on
Bringing out the best in me
War of the Hearts
06:48
I could aim
But I could not fire
Got a bullet to spare
To kill my desire
Who's calling the shots
One of us must make the Peace
To have or to have not
The fire has got to cease

I'm loaded
Don't know where to point this thing
It's a sin
How we hit where it hurts

Who's calling the shots
One of us must end this masquerade
To have or to have not
Let's heal the wounds that we've made

It'a a war of the heart (it's a war of the heart)
It's a war of the heart

Got a bullet to space, don't wanna send it your way

Who's calling the shots
One of us, must make the peace
To have or to have not
The fire has got to cease

It'a a war of the heart (it's a war of the heart)
It's a war of the heart

I'm loaded
Don't know where to point this thing
(it's a sin) It's a sin
How we hit where it hurts (where it hurts)

One of us
Gotta end this masquerade
Got to heal the wounds that we've made
I've got a bullet to spare
Don't want to send it your way
If you want to end it
If you want to end it just say

It'a a war of the heart (it's a war of the heart)
It's a war of the heart

(Got to end this masqurade)

I've got a bullet to spare
Don't want to send it your way
If you want to end it
If you want to end it just say

It'a a war of the heart
It's a war of the heart
It'a a war of the heart
You're Not the Man
05:11
You're not the man who gave me everything
I've ever wanted
You're not the man
Who stepped inside my life
And haunted every, every day

You're not the man
Who said he'd never leave
Couldn't breathe
And could not sleep without me

This was someone who you left behind
A long time ago

You're not the man
Who would bleed for me
But never shed a tear
You're not the one
Said he'd always be near

You're not the man
Who threw me a lifeline
And you're not the man
I am so proud to call mine

And you're not the one
Who said he'd never leave
The one who made me believe in me
That was someone who could do no wrong
But you lost him

You're not the man
Who would bleed for me
But never shed a tear
You're not the one
Who said he'd always, always, always be here
said he'd always always be near

But don't get me wrong
Although it seems sad
It's not all bad
You see
I'm not the little girl I use to be

You're not the man
Not the one
Who said he'd always, always, always be near

He was everything you see
He made me believe in me
Said he'd alway always always be here
Jezebel
05:31
Jezebel wasn't born with a silver spoon in her mouth
She probably had less than every one of us
But when she knew how to walk she knew
How to bring the house down
Can't blame her for her beauty
She wins with her hands down
Jezebel, what a belle
Looks like a princess in her new dress
How did you get that
Do you really want to know, she said
It would seem she's on her way
It's more, more than just a dream
She put on her stockings and shoes
Had nothing to lose - she said it was worth it

Reach for the top
And the sun is gonna shine
Every winter was a war she said
I want to get what's mine

Jezebel Jezebel
Won't try to deny where she came from
You can see it in her pride
And the raven in her eyes
Try show her a better way
She'll say you don't know what you've been missing
And by the time she blinks you know she won't be listening

Reach for the top she said
And the sun is gonna shine
Every winter was a war she said
I want to get what's mine
Mr. Wrong
02:52
He don't care
Where he's been playing
He doesn't hear
A word she's saying
She's a fancy girl
So why's she staying
Hanging on for Mr. Wrong
He doesn't show her that he needs her
She doesn't know his love's a liar
She'a a fancy girl - got to be strong
Say so long - Mr. Wrong

Get out on your own girl
Show him how
You can be strong girl
You don't need him now
Run away, pretty girl
Say so long - Mr. wrong

Run away
Bye bye

Never as Good as the First Time
05:02
Good times they come and they go
Never going to know
What fate is going to blow
You're way just hope it feels right
Sometimes it comes and it goes
You take it ever so slow
And then you lose it, then it flows right to you
So we rely on the past
Special moments that last
Were they as tender as we dare to remember
Such a fine time as this
What could equal the bliss
The thrill of the first kiss
It'll blow right to you

It's never as good as the first time
Never as good as the first time

Good times they come and they go
Never going to know
It's like the weather
One day chicken next day feathers
The rose we remember
The thorns we forget
We'd love and leave
We never spend a minute on regret

It is a possibility
The more we know the less we see
Second time, second time is not quite what it seems
Natural as the way we came to be
Second time won't live up to the dream

It's never as good as the first time
Never as good as the first time

Natural as the way we came to be
Second time won't live up to the dream
Natural as the way we came to be
Second time is not quite what it seemed

It's never
As good as the first time
As the first time (Never as good as the first time)
The First time

Natural as the way we came to be
Second time won't live up to the dream
Natural as the way we came to be
Second time is not quite what it seemed

It's never
As good as the first time
As the first time (never as good as the first time)
The first time
Fear
04:12
Blue is the color of the red sky
Will he, will he come home tonite
Blue is the color that she feels inside
Matador, I can't hide my fear anymore
Azul es el color del rojo cielo
volvera volvera a mi esta noche
Azul es el color que siente a dentro
matador no puedo esconder mi temor

Can she tame the beast that is her fear
puede domar la fiera que es su temor
Waiting for her matador
Will they bring the bad news

Blue is the color that she feels inside
Matador I can't hide my fear anymore

Azul es el color del rojo cielo
volvera, volvera a mi esta noche
Azul es el color que siente a dentro
Matador no puedo esconder mi temor
Tar Baby
03:59
Granma came to see
Something she could not believe
How could her girl be
So naive
Tar baby, tar baby told
The secret she conceived

That big old smile of yours
Could turn the wind into a song
How could I have doubted
Honey it's with me you belong

Tar baby, tar baby
I love you so

Like a brand new blade
You cut into my life
Cut through two decades
Like a hot coal on ice

Tar baby, my tar baby
It maybe was meant to be
When I look at you
I can't believe my eyes

And with your magic
I think you just might charm the birds out of the sky

Tar baby, tar baby, tar baby
Came good out of grief

A golden thread inside of the web
That I got caught in
Oh, it's a lover's revenge, but out of the pain
Come the best things you see

You cut into my life
You cut into my life (baby baby baby baby don't you know that)
You cut into my life (I love you)
You cut into my life

La la la la la ooh
You can turn the wind into a song
La la la la la baby baby baby
It's with me you belong
Maureen
04:22
Maureen
It's hard to explain
I'm never going to see you again
And you'll never meet my new friends
Maureen, I miss you
I just can't explain
I'm never going to see you again
I wish you could meet my new friends

Walking along the subway listening to
Loving you is easy acapella
You were a souped-up car in that rent-a-go-kart town
And I miss you, Maureen

We're as thick as thieves

Maureen maureen
Remember when my mother said to me
Sade don't you come home to late
Till you're back I stay awake

And maureen
With the boys you could tell at a glance
You'd say he looks good
Let'd hope he can dance
Wicky wacky party to the..

Where are we going tonight
And what will you be wearing
Shone like a souped-up car in that rent-a-go-kart town
And I miss you maureen, I miss you girl

You were my best friend
I'm never going to see you again, maureen
And you'll never meet my new friends
You really were a pearl in my world, maureen

Maureen
It's hard to explain
You'll never call round to see me again
You'll never meet my new friends

Never meet my new friends
Never meet my new friends
Never meet my new friends
