"Love Should Be A Crime" as written by Gregg W. Sutton, Desmond Child and Jesse James Dupree....
Words like love and happiness
They don't seem to stand up baby
When you put 'em to the test
You say that you're a poet
That your life's a work of art
But you can't
Paint love by numbers, babe
You gotta play it all by heart

Baby, baby, baby, baby
It happens all the time
How you play me, play me, play me
You're playing with my mind

Baby, baby, baby, baby
You're making me go crazy
And if you call that love then
Love should be a crime

Honesty bites the dust
Every time I hear you saying
That love is never lust, yeah
Did you read that in a book
Did you see it in a magazine
Did you think that I'm some new age fool
Did you think I'm so naive

Baby, baby, baby, baby
It happens all the time
How you play me, play me, play me
You're playing with my mind

Baby, baby, baby, baby
You're making me go crazy
And if you call that love then
Love should be a crime

You and me
Suddenly
We got nothing to say
Because the words get in the way

Baby, baby, baby, baby
It happens all the time
How you play me, play me, play me
Playing with my mind

Baby, baby, baby, baby
You're making me go crazy
And if you call that love then
All it was
Was a pocket full of nothing
But a suicidal gun
And if you call that love then
Love should be a
Crime
