Mike Oldfield — Crime Of Passion lyrics

On a bright day she passed away in the morning.
It's a cruel way to take her away with no warning.
He took her hands through every midnight hour
And then saw her fading away like a spring shower.

[ Chorus ]

I can see a complete life's time,
Pictures and posters of times and fashion.
Nineteen years with no reason or rhyme
Taken away in a crime of passion.

He stood to see if he could catch her breathing
But it was no good, he understood she was leaving.
He looked outside the frosty window pane
And then he saw her moving away, Elizabeth Jane.

[ Repeat Chorus ]

I see freedom in sight, it's a long climb
But she would not give up the fight for a long time,
And I see a light come shining in tonight.
Baby, it's all right, we couldn't have changed it with second sight.

[ Repeat Chorus ]

I see freedom light shining in the night.
I see freedom but she wouldn't give up the fight.

I see a light go shining in tonight.
Baby, it's all right, we couldn't have changed it with second sight.

I see a light go shining in tonight.
Baby, it's all right, we couldn't have changed it with second sight.
