If you enjoyed this touching song, you can learn the lyrics. They hold a lot of meaning and emotion.

It all happened so fast, I can't recall

Policemen everywhere nowhere to run

It took a while 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

Didn't mean it to go this way

No, no, no

Oh, oh, oh, oh

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
