lyrics

Perfect Crime

You drew no blood so nothing ever happened in your mind
You left no evidence behind and so it’s hard to trace the damage back to you
You set your traps where only I’d be walking
Pulled the sharp teeth back and waited for my fall
And you felt no guilt
No guilt at all

The perfect crime
The perfect crime
The scars are out, are out of sight
My eyes are blind
My hands are tied
Your victim is in my mind

Your best disguise, you tell me that you love me
So it must be right, to find a way to silence me
To keep your secrets safe inside your heart
You’ve said too much, and I’m the only witness to this crime of love
The only one who knows
And so you keep me close

The perfect crime
The perfect crime
The scars are out, are out of sight
My eyes are blind
My hands are tied
Your victim is in my mind

You want it, so you take it
You stole my heart to break it
You fear it, so you kill it
Before it grows
Before anybody ever knows

The perfect crime
The perfect crime
The scars are out, are out of sight
My eyes are blind
You win this time
Your victim is in my mind

In my mind
