|Bm7      |          |          |         |
|         |          |          |         |

There was a time you had it made
Everything was going your way
So many guys hanging on a string
You just wanted to play


Chorus:  (1:07-)
                  D        Bm    F#m
Like a spy in the house of love  Searching for a clue in the dark
       A          D        Bm    F#m
       Spy in the house of love  Someone put a spell on your heat
       A          D        Bm    F#m
       Spy in the house of love  Searching for a clue in the dark
       A          D        Bm    F#m                          A
       Spy in the house of love  Someone's got a hold of your heart


[Verse 2]  (1:39-)

Spy baby, in the house of love
Spy baby, in the house of love

Out on the street you were the queen
Playing games with jokers and fools
Then out of the night there comes the king
Now he's changing the rules


(Chorus)  (2:26-)


[Verse 3]   (2:59-)

Spy, baby in the house of love
Spy, baby in the house of love, hay

Coda:     (3:30-)

Hey, spy in the house of love  Searching for a clue in the dark
Spy in the house of love       Suspicion gonna tear you apart
Spy in the house of love       Searching for a clue in the dark
Spy in the house of love       Someone's got a hold of your heart

Spy in the house of love       Oh, love
Spy in the house of love       House of love
Spy in the house of love
