Gilbert O'sullivan – Is It A Crime? lyrics

Is it a crime to say I love you
A crime to say I care
Is it a crime to want you madly
With me everywhere
Is it a crime to be reminded
That someone close to you is true
If it's a crime of course I'm guilty
But you are guilty too

Is it unwise to ask a question
Unwise to ask how come
Is it unwise to say I'm sorry
For something I might have done
Is it unwise you'll have to tell me
Because as far as I can see
If it's unwise all I can say is
God help you and me

Patience Is a timely virtue
Helps us overcome delay
Waiting up all hours won't hurt you
But it will. Done with skill
Kill you anyway

Is it a crime to say how are you
A crime to say how well
Is it a crime to beg forgiveness
After putting you through hell
Is it a crime you wouldn't think so
But from the looks that I've received
Not only should I not have said it
But I Shouldn't even speak

Memories alone won't take up
As much time as we'd like them too
Strangely enough. The more we break-up
The less I find peace of mind
Living without you

Is It a crime to say I love you
A crime to say I care
Is It a crime to want you madly (gladly)
Without you even there
Is It a crime to be remembered
By someone close to you
If it's a crime all I can say is
What is the world coming to
