about

A dark tale of a crime of passion.

lyrics

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
Some girl tried to get her hands on you
And me stuck in the middle, what could I do?
I broke the law today for the first time

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
I saw your head in between her thighs
And then I saw a bread knife between her eyes
I broke the law today for the first time

And now the city PD are going to come for me
Oh, darling, don't you see, they'll never leave us be
Every day I'll cry and pray
Why did it have to be this way?

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
I'm not a bad person, you know I'm not
But when it comes to love, you're all I've got
I broke the law today for the first time

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
She had such a cute body and a pretty face
I left her on the shelf in your trophy case
When I broke the law today for the first time

Now the CIA are going to look my way
And the FBI are going to drop on by
Tooth and nail they're going to drag me to jail
And they'll leave me all alone with my misery

I broke the law today for the first time
I broke the law today for the very first time
I'll always love you darling, you know it's true
Even though you ripped my heart in two
I broke the law today for the first and second time.
