lyrics

It's not what it looks like
No it's not what you think
You had too much drive
And not enough to drink

It's not what you asked for
No it's not even close
You just take off your head
And you sleep in your clothes

You got the right to remain silent
Now, speak for yourself
When you say I'm heaven sent but you're just
Giving me hell

Well on the roadside sign
Walk that fine line
In my cuffs holding hand in hand
You say forget it, it's fine
It's my crime

It's for your own good
They gave you a chance
And you bought yourself time
With a bedroom advance

And will they put you away
When they sentence me to life
But if you don't get out (once in a while)
How will you survive

You got your right to one call
Well if you recall what I said
When I read your basic rights
And you screamed, then go ahead

You made appeals
The jury's out on this one
But on a trial basis
You'd rather be on the run
It's my crime

You're on your best behaviour
You might as well go free
You couldn't stomach your pride
So i swallowed the key

You did 50 to life
But that's nothing to me
Are you still in your chains?
That you wore for me

You do your time
But love's a petty thief
You get charged
But it's my crime
