Law-breakers


We’re not suppo-osed – to be here right now:
breakin’ worthless vows.
Preachin’ moral tenets, maxims and rules,
bendin’/breakin’ their tabus.
Let go of the past – it’s holding you back!
Cut us some slack.
Heartbreak to cloud nine – we’re makin’ headlines:
all over the grapevine.

Some might say that we’re strange bedfellows.
This wasn’t planned, but God’s laugh echoes.

Law-breakers.

No fool like an old fool, full of the Devil,
bombshell ‘n’ rebel.
In lecherous aw-we, dirty yet sweet,
good enough to eat.
Aid and abettin’ – partners in lovecrime:
gonna do bedtime.
Deep, dark secrets, intimate moments,
beg for atonement.

PRE-CHORUS

busy breakin’ vows.
We didn’t plan this – it’s a corny line
but we are the grapevine.
You’ve got your rules – and moral tenets:
I should know better.
Hanged for a lamb, hanged for a sheep:
I’m in too deep.
at eachother’s feet.
Deep, dark secrets, x x white slave/close shaves,
fortune favours the brave.
