Teena Marie – Alibi lyrics

Photographic memories, scanners on our love affair
Like we were the L. A. Times, the headlines read, 'Beware'
I don't deal in hearsay, calculation ain't my game
But today I see you and I hang my head in shame

Lipstick on your collar, and the color isn't mine
White lines on the dresser, and you even drank my wine
Babe, your face is flushed, it's more than just a hunch
Tell me, what's this fear, maybe she's still here?

Baby, you're an alibi, you cross your heart and hope to die
Promising to tell no lies, baby, you're an alibi

Looking out the window, I can hear an engine roar
Cobalt Blue Pantera dashes through the garage door
Now you cry injustice and synthetic violins
Every night outside my door, a candle in the wind

Lipstick on your collar, and the color isn't mine
White lines on the dresser, and you even drank my wine
Babe, your face is flushed, it's more than just a hunch
Tell me, what's this fear, maybe the picture is clear

Baby, you're an alibi, you cross your heart and hope to die
Promising to tell no lies, baby, you're an alibi

Ooh ah, baby, ooh ah, alibi
Ooh ah, baby, ooh ah, alibi

Lipstick on your collar, and the color isn't mine
White lines on the dresser, and you even drank my wine
Babe, your face is flushed, it's more than just a hunch
Tell me, what's this fear, maybe the end is near

Alibi, you crossed your heart and hoped to die
Promising to tell no lies, baby, you're just an alibi
[Incomprehensible]

Alibi, you crossed your heart and hoped to die
Promising to tell no lies, baby, you're just an alibi

You're just an, just an, just an, just an
Alibi, you crossed your heart and hoped to die
Promising to tell no lies, baby, you're just an alibi

I flash back to another time zone
When you were late most every night
I was a prisoner by my own device

And what about your distant cousin?
You know the one that lives in France
No introduction, only a harlequin romance

Ooh, alibi
(Love, lines, angles and rhymes)
Alibis, you crossed your heart and hoped to die
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
Alibis, you're gonna hurt me, baby, alibi
