(WRITTEN BY T. COLTON & R. SMITH)
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
