The Crime Of My Heart


Is it a crime to want you

Long after you lost interest in me?

Should I burry my head in shame?

Should I kill who I can't begin

To be?

My brain is tied up in knots

Who killed who?

No one

It's not time to know what I'm thinking

So don't let me begin

Hating me is all you do

Wanting you less is all I get

To be doing

It's totally O.K.

For us to never be anything

Your heart is stuck on Sean

And my heart is so stuck on you

That I don't want anybody else

So I'll stay myself

'Cause I refuse to make you love me

Not just 'cause I don't know how

Thanks. And I'm really glad it never came down to me actually killing who I could not become, like this one said I wanted to.
