getting away with murder lyrics – meat loaf

she thought she had the only key
she thought you only opened up to her
well you see
i don’t know why you call it love

she thought she was the brightest light
but someone else was lighting up your life
what i think
i don’t know why you call it love

i’m not suspicious
no not me
but i’m not blind and i’d have to be not to see

gettin’ away with murder
you can love a girl and hurt her
that’s gettin’ away with
gettin’ away with murder
you can tell a girl you love her
while you’re working on another
that’s gettin’ away with
gettin’ away with murder

you have had to love and run
two in the hand
instead you’re holding none
and i don’t
i don’t know how you call it love
no no

you’re not demanding
no not you
you’re understanding
you do what you want to do

gettin’ away with murder
you can love a girl and hurt her
that’s gettin’ away with
gettin’ away with murder
you can tell a girl you love her
while you’re working on another
that’s gettin’ away with
gettin’ away with murder

said she was the only one
but you’ve been cheating all along
there ought to be a law for
what you’ve done

i got to save you from yourself
i got to stop you from hurting someone else

you’ve been gettin’ away with murder
you can love a girl and hurt her
(gettin’ away with)
gettin’ away with murder
you can tell a girl you love her
while you’re working on another
(gettin’ away with)
oh, gettin’ away with murder

ohh!

(gettin’ away with murder)
(you can love a girl and hurt her)
(gettin’ away with)
(gettin’ away with murder)
tell a girl you love her
while you’re working on another
that’s gettin’ away with
(gettin’ away with murder)

ohh!

gettin’ away with murder
you can love a girl and hurt her
that’s gettin’ away with
gettin’ away with murder
you can tell a girl you love her
while you’re working on another…
