  • The Love That Harms


John Hiatt

She's seen the whites of crazy eyes
Been in the camps of foreign spies
Taken lovers by surprise
The captives smile

But all the while she is wearing a disguise
Better men have been betrayed
Better men have been afraid
She's the best trick in the trade

Just another kiss
On a long hit list and she's got you made
I'd hoped I wouldn't haven't to tell you
But now it begins

The fool has rushed in
Into the waiting arms
Of the love that harms
I never knew such a hurting thing

Until she wore my wedding ring
And all the pain her love can bring
Well, I'm telling you
So you won't go through what I'm still remembering

But I can see that its just too late
The next in line is gonna have to wait
Thought we all meet the same fate
In a tomb that's sealed

With a kiss of steal from a blinding date
Ready or not she got you willing
Now it begins
The fool has rushed in

Into the waiting arms of the love that harms
