Don't we all have that one who got away...


Wanted Man

Too many times I found myself here
Watching her go and waiting for my head to clear
Pulling up my courage and pushing down the fear
This kind of love is so raw

Shouldn't be allowed to make a man wait
Gotta be illegal to reside in this state
Who am I to ever try and tempt fate
But there oughta be a law

It's a crime
It's a crime to leave me this way
And she breaks the law
When she comes back to me
And then she just runs away

From the touch of a hand
The brush of a kiss
I said to myself
It don't get better than this
I was a wanted man

I remember this one time
When her eyes went wild
And she just rolled down a grassy hill
Giggling like a child
I felt like everything I knew was suddenly on trial
I was out of control

Then we're alone
We're alone and she's on me like a cat
I think every man oughta have
A few moments like that
When she's on top and I'm flat on my back
We were on such a roll
And I remember every moment that we stole

It's a crime...

In a perfect world
She would be my girl
But I won't wait forever
I cant' live in the past
Ain't it funny how the first
Is the only one to last

It's a crime...
