"Spy Of Love" as written by Michael Hutchence and Timothy William Farriss....
Have you noticed to this day
How many times we've prayed and played
Lifting lovers up and down
It gets around in this old town

Sleight of hand and sleight of mouth
A dirty trick to catch me out
I don't mind but what I say
Use that magic for better days

Standing above this moment
Listening to all I say
The spy of love will track me
Will catch me

Through the window I see a face
That dirty face that speaks with sorrow
You listen to the walls for clues
Stand in shadows protecting you

    General CommentOne of my all-time favorite INXS songs, and a very under-valued piece from their debut American album Shaboo Shabah.
    There is a strong element of romanticism in most INXS songs, and this song is no exception.
