Spectre Of Love

Chords and lyrics for Spectre Of Love by Stranglers

I never knew what made me do it
I just remember it was wrong
I’ve questioned why I put you through it
Who would have thought you’d be so strong?

I should have wrapped you up and kept you safe

Instead I turned my back on you

You can’t deny there’s a spectre of love

He keeps a hawk and dove
You can’t deny there’s a spectre of love

I keep your picture by my window

You’re smiling and you look so young
If I could only speak your language
You’d know that you’re the only one

I feel I’m stepping out in dead man’s shoes

And only you can save me now

You can’t deny there’s a spectre of love

He keeps a hawk and dove
You can’t deny there’s a spectre of love

And if the time should come

This can be undone – and I swear it

Salvation can be found in times like these

I just need you and I’ve found mine

You can’t deny there’s a spectre of love

He keeps a hawk and dove
You can’t deny there’s a spectre of love
He keeps a hawk and dove
You can’t deny there’s a spectre of love
