Caught you in the act, can't put up with that
Messing where you shouldn't be
I want to hear you say you're sorry
Cause nobody takes advantage of me

You're missing the mark, shooting in the dark
I'm pulling the wool from my eyes
Baby don't you push me further
It's gonna hurt you if it happens twice

If looks could kill
You'd be lying on the floor
You'd be begging me please please
Baby don't hurt me no more
If looks could kill
You'd be reeling from the pain
And you'd never lie again
If looks could kill

You're living on the edge, hanging by a thread
I'm watching every move you make
You don't want to see my anger
So don't you make another mistake

Love is on the line, I ain't about to be kind
That's a promise and a threat
If I was you I'd really cool it
Or risk a night you'll never forget

If looks could kill
You'd be living on the floor
You'd be begging me please please
Darlin don't hurt me no more
If looks could kill
You'd be reeling from the pain
And you'd never lie again
If looks could kill

I was a fool to believe in you
A sucker for every line
I'm a little less blind
Than I was before
I can see right through your design

You'd be begging me please please
Darlin' don't hurt me no more
If looks could kill
You'd be reeling from the pain
And you'd never lie again
If looks could kill

You'd be begging me please please
Darlin' don't hurt me no more
If looks could kill
You'd be reeling from the pain
And you'd never lie again
If looks could kill
If looks could kill

    'its gonna hurt you if it happens twice' is the last line of the second verse up there.

    One of Heart's best songs.

    I think this song is really obvious about its meaning. Its about this guy that is a player. And she is nieve or whatever you would want to call it. And he tells her sappy romantic lines and she belives them. But then he is caught cheating on her. So he can't lie, and she is so mad that if her "looks could kill" he would be getting the beating of his life, plus never hurt anyone like he hurt her again.

    I believe the line in the chorus if "if looks could kill, you'd be lying on the floor" not 'living on the floor' Anyways, its a great song, one of my favorites as a kid, not sure why though...

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Holiday

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
