Lyrics


"Murder In The USA"


It all happened so fast I can't recall

Police men everywhere nowhere to run

It took awhile but I came out of hiding with my hands up

They say, if you know what's good for you come on out with your hands up


I've been running

Can't run no more

Got blood on my hands yeah


Who's gonna save me now

I shot my lover and I ran away

Committed murder in the USA

Who's gonna save me now

Who's gonna help me now

I shot my lover and I ran away

I didn't mean it to go this way

No no no


It all happened so fast we can't undone

We'd just made love and it was so pure

And then my phone started ringing

You saw a name and got crazy

Nothing I said was true you chose I didn't love you


Now I'm in trouble

Big big trouble

Got blood on my hands yeah


Who's gonna save me now

I shot my lover and I ran away

Committed murder in the USA

Who's gonna save me now

Who's gonna help me now

I shot my lover and I ran away

Didn't mean it to go this way

No no no


You and I

We were meant to be

Still in love going strong

In a perfect world

Guess I will be seeing you soon now

They say I got to face the chair now

Oh no no no

Wish I could turn back time


Who's gonna save me now

I shot my lover and I ran away

Baby I didn't mean it to go this way

Yeah yeah yeah


(Save me now)

(Run away)

Committed murder in the USA

Who's gonna save me now

Who's gonna help me now

I shot my lover and I ran away

Didn't mean it to go this way

No no no


Who's gonna save me now

I shot my lover and I ran away

Committed murder in the USA

Who's gonna save me now

Who's gonna help me now

I shot my lover and I ran away

Didn't mean it to go this way
