Story Behind the Song

It happens rvery single day!

Lyrics

LOVE IS THE SENTENCE (NOT THE CRIME)

Verse1
You are my shelter from the storm,
All the promises I?ve sworn,
Half the paper I have torn -
You are the day that I was born.

You are the last tear that I cry,
Big red apple of my eye.
You are my smoke when I get high ?
And my reason when I try.

Chorus
There are no bars outside these windows.
There are no clocks to pass the time.
Just like a prisoner in the shadows ?
Love is the sentence, not the crime ?
Love is the sentence, not the crime.

Bridge
I?m a little bit father/a little bit son/I?m your long ?last? love ? I?m the only one.
It?s you/It?s me/It?s us/It?s we ? Who both [OR These two] [OR Just who? OR So who?] [OR We?re both caught-up in the reverie.]got caught in the reverie.] [OR We both got caught in the reverie.]
Like the quilted shores and the sands of time, I won?t give up [OR If you?re really mine.] what is really mine.
Ah, You can?t believe that I won?t try, [if] I cross my heart and I hope to die.

Verse2
You?re on my breath in every word.
You make me right when I?m absurd.
You?re all the music that I have heard ?
You make me sing just like a bird.

You showed me mercy in the storm,
And you were kind when I was torn.
You dried my eyes so I could mourn.
Just like a rose, I need the thorn.
[OR Some need a rose, I need the [a] thorn.]

Chorus

Bridge

Verse3
Up from the fires of my damnation ?
Look at me, I?m a new creation.
Get a hold [OR ?load?] of this incarnation ?
I surrender to your salvation.

Walk ye [OR ?me?] gently through the fire.
I?ll do to you what you require.
We?ll take it slow, so you won?t tire ?
I?ll wash you up with my desire.

Take your passion for a walk;
Just close your eyes ? no need to talk.
We?re like the eagle and the hawk ?
I?m like the wind ? and you?re my rock.

Chorus
There are no bars outside these windows.
There are no clocks to pass the time.
Just like a prisoner in the shadows ?
Love is the sentence, not the crime.
Love is the sentence, not the crime.
Love is the sentence, not the crime.
Love is the sentence, not the crime.
