Lyrics

You've got your pretty face
You've got disarming eyes
You've got such social grace
I've got my pretty spies
I found you lost, misplaced
I loved that lovely guise
I said
I'd try my luck and you said
"Well you don't
You don’t have to try"

(I forgot that night)
(What you said that night)
"I had the most exquisite time"
(Well you got that right)
But it’s not the whole story
I want it all

(I court the loveliest of crimes)
Say it, as if it were true
(We’ve got the knife you left behind)
Play it just like you do
I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I'm not next in line
(I court the loveliest of crimes)
Save it, 'cause we’ve got the knife

You've got your pretty face
You've got your stunning glow
You've got exquisite taste
I've got the marks to show
You said you'd shoot the stars
But bullets make you blush
Turns out
You liked to play, play with knives
And I hear that it gives you a rush

(Well we've got the knife)
(Yeah we've got the knife)
I've got the knife you left behind
(Well we've got the knife)
Now I want the whole story
I want it all

(I court the loveliest of crimes)
Say it, as if it were true
(We've got the knife you left behind)
Play it just like you do
I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I'm not next in line
(I court the loveliest of crimes)
Save it, 'cause we've got the knife

I thought you looked familiar
I'd seen your face
Long before that night
Now I wait
For you were no stranger
No stranger to
To taking a life

Oh
(I court the loveliest of crimes)
Say it, as if it were true
(We’ve got the knife you left behind)
Play it just like you do
I wanna hear you mean it
When you say I’m not next in line
(I court the loveliest of crimes)
Save it, 'cause we’ve got the knife
We've got the knife
We've got the knife
