CRIMINAL (LYRICS)

CRIMINAL (LYRICS)

Mama, I fell in love with a criminal

Point-blank range stole my heart in Union Square

Mama, you told me love was a miracle

So why do I keep feeling like nobody cares

 

It's the only thing I know, fighting through the cold to find ya

Looking for your light, the shadows always hide the truth

Lighting up the coals, hope you see the smoke of my fire

In a world filled of ghosts, I can only see the soul in you

 

I've been trying to find my way in the city

I don't even know myself anymore

But if I'm sure of one thing; I need you with me

Even if half the time we're at war

 

But, that's just the way it goes (ohhh x2)

But, that's just the way it goes (ohhh x2)

That's just the way it goes (ohhh x2)

Either way it goes

 

Father told me one day by the river

You’ll find glory and hurt within the flow

There’s a pain here but it don’t last forever

Gotta let it tear away your heart so it can grow

 

It's the only thing I know, fighting through the cold to find ya

Looking for your light, the shadows always hide the truth

Lighting up the coals, hope you see the smoke of my fire

In a world filled of ghosts, I can only see the soul in you

 

I've been trying to find my way in the city

I don't even know myself anymore

But if I'm sure of one thing; I need you with me

Even if half the time we're at war

 

But that's just the way it goes (ohhh x2)

But that's just the way it goes (ohhh x2)

That's just the way it goes (ohhh x2)

Either way it goes
