All alone in a room above a grocery store, trying to feel no pity
The power was down and the lights were out
In the heart of a cold, cold city
The only light, coming in from the night
Was from a searchlight up above
A desperate woman, and a desperate man, they were stuck in desperate love

They played their game and they felt no shame
Living by their own rules
Some called them crazy, some called them evil, some just called them fools
They'd solemnly swore they'd just do one more
Then they'd leave this life behind
Now they're trapped in a room, that's laying heavy with doom
Peaking through the window blind

Chorus
Desperate Love
Desperate Love
Desperate Love

Lying on the floor of the grocery store, is the owner with a gun in his hand
Never stopped to figure, with your hand on the trigger, you're looking at a desperate man
She came from the back with no sign of attack
When her 38 spewed it's lead
She was thinking of her lover, they were heading for cover
Leaving him there for dead

He was a stranger and she liked the danger, of living with a man on the run
She was a loner, he thought he liked to own her, so he could say he had someone
Now they're lying in the dark with two bullets in their heart
As a search lamp shines from above
A desperate woman and a desperate man, they were stuck in desperate love.

Repeat Chorus
