Lyrics of If Love Was A Crime

You and I we collide
Like the stars on the summer night
We can shine for ever

And you and we're alive
What we feel is what is right
We can run like never

If love was a crime then we would be criminals
Locked up for life but I'll do the time
If love was a crime then we would work miracles
High above the ground

О, дай ми любовта (3)
They will never break us down
О, дай ми любовта! (3)
They will never break us down

Never mind
Wrong or right
Our love ain't got no pride
So we change for better

Unafraid
Never fade
When it's dark we illuminate
Can we rise together

If love was a crime then we would be criminals
Locked up for life but I'll do the time
If love was a crime then we would work miracles
High above the ground

О, дай ми любовта! (3)
They will never break us down
О, дай ми любовта! (3)
They will never break us down

Together we're untouchable
You and me against the world
Together we're invincible
Together we're untouchable
You and me against the world
Together we're invincible
They will never break us down
