Steve Winwood - Spy In The House Of Love Lyrics

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

Like a spy in the house of love
Searching for a clue in the dark
Spy in the house of love
Someone put a spell on your heart
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, 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

  27. Ron Behro

    Yes, I totally agree! "Junction Seven" is a brilliant disc and very underrated!!! This disc reminds me so much of feel of "Back In The High Life" from 1986.

  28. Ron Behro

    Hi There,

    After are very long search for more videos of the "Junction Seven" CD, I was not able to find a single one.

  29. Ron Behro

    Hello Andy,

    In response to your comment. Yes, the song Spy In The House of Love was from 1997 on the CD called "Junction Seven". This CD is a very underrated and less known disc for Steve Winwood. Now, 1987 was the year after Steve released his CD called "Back In The High Life" which was a totally amazing disc from 1986.

  30. Ron Behro

    This is the first time I have ever seen the video for this song! Thanks so much for posting it. I have the CD in my collection and it is excellent!

  31. Claus Eberhart

    Just type ""In 1997, Steve Winwood released a tune" into google, it got me right there! :o))

  32. Claus Eberhart

    ah, nah, I just had found it! It just won't let me type the link here, the entry is deleted right away then ...

  33. Claus Eberhart

    Well sure, although: google, Sir! But here it is:
    - oh ok, can't seem to be able to put links into here! - just type the phrase into google, but also says in that place: "[citation needed]"

  34. Claus Eberhart

    I hope you're not Steve, or are you? :o))

  35. Claus Eberhart

    He stole it. Here's what wikipedia says:
    "In 1997, Steve Winwood released a tune which borrowed not just the title of Was (Not Was)'s single "Spy in the House of Love" but also the bass line and other elements. However, no lawsuits ensued (or were settled out of court)."

  36. sauermusicDE

    No, it's not.

  37. JosCR66
