Above The Law

 This is me talking to you
 Tell me what your heart can do ?
 Take me by surprise, whatever you see
 You'll never be alone with me

 I close or open the door
 Telling you that less is more
 You cannot disguise whatever you do
 No one is above the law

 In these dark and troubled times
 People just surviving
 We live a double life

 You'd be safe and warm at home
 Something else is going on
 We don't have to kiss and say no more about it
 And if your eyes are watching me

 Baby, life could be so beautiful
 And we become invisible
 The pleasure is the punishment
 For the crime

 Break away the chains that bind
 It's not enough to be satisfied
 It's knowing how it all begins
 Or knowing where the heart belongs
 And we all make mistakes

 It's your heart and my heart
 And no one can take part
 And our love
 Is love above the law

 So you decide we go insane
 I know what you came here for
 Whether you are mine
 I'll never be sure
 We'll ever be above the law

 On this dark and stormy night
 Where these walls may hide us
 You sigh and let me in

 You let me hold you in these arms of mine
 (One flame inside)
 Tomorrow is eternity
 (Temptation eyes)
 And we may get to kiss and say no more about it
 (No tears to cry)
 And if my eyes are watching you

 Baby, life could be so beautiful
 And everything is possible
 And we become invisible
 (We become invisible)

 It's your heart and my heart
 And no one can take part
 I'll always be with you
 It's what I'm living for

 The end of my rainbow
 Is outside your window
 And our love is one love
 Love above the law

 It's your heart and my heart
 And no one can take part
 I'll always be with you
 It's what I'm living for

 The end of my rainbow
 Is outside your window
 And our love is one love
 Love above the law
