Lyrics:

I can hear the soft breathing of the girl that I love
As she lies here beside me asleep with the night
Her hair in a fine mist floats on my pillow
Reflecting the glow of the winter moonlight

But I’ve got to creep down the alleyway
Fly down the highway
Before they come to catch me I’ll be gone
Somewhere they can’t find me

Oh oh baby you don’t know what I’ve done
I’ve committed a crime I’ve broken the law
While you were here sleeping just dreaming of me
I held up and robbed a liquor store

But I’ve got to creep down the alleyway
Fly down the highway
Before they come to catch me I’ll be gone
Somewhere they can’t find me

Oh my life seems unreal my crime an illusion
A scene badly written in which I must play
And though it puts me up tight to leave you
I know it’s not right to leave you,
When morning is just a few hours away

But I’ve got to creep down the alleyway
Fly down the highway
Before they come to catch me I’ll be gone
Somewhere they can’t find me
