Girl, I stand accused
People say, I love you
Yeah, I stand accused
Oh, but what can I do

You belong to some other guy
Hope I never have to testify
If loving you is a big crime
I've been guilty a long time

Girl, I stand accused
With no more than a chance
Yeah, I stand accused
And I got no defense

All I need is a touch from your hand
Find myself on the witness stand
I'd be unable to lie girl
I got a love that won't die girl

Tell the world that I was guilty
I wouldn't stand a chance
Tell the world that I was a victim
A victim of circumstance

Girl knock myself out see
If I could explain
Girl, I love you so much
That I'm almost insane

You disturbed my balance of mind
Couldn't help what I did at the time
I stand accused and I'm guilty
Baby, I always will be
I need a witness baby

You disturbed my balance of mind
Couldn't help what I did at the time
I stand accused and I'm guilty
Baby, I always will be

I need a witness baby
I stand accused of loving you
So guilty baby, oh yeah
I stand accused

I S T A N D A C C U S E D
I stand accused, loving you
So guilty baby
Oh yeah, oh yeah
