Like a criminal

a criminal stealing my heart
I thought I could be smart to thwart
breaking to the core of my soul
surprisingly you’ve made me whole
you’ve made me do things like a mole
being with you that is my role
without you, life is a big hole
obsessed with you from head to sole
like a criminal, you’re smart
can’t be caught for stealing my heart*
