Track Lyrics

VERSE ONE

LAST NIGHT I WAS DREAMING I WAS LOCKED IN A PRISON CELL
WHEN I WOKE UP I WAS SCREAMING, CALLING OUT YOUR NAME
WOH, AND THE JUDGE AND THE JURY
THEY ALL PUT THE BLAME ON ME
THEY WOULDN'T GO FOR MY STORY
THEY WOULDN'T HEAR MY PLEA

CHORUS

ONLY YOU CAN SET ME FREE
'COS I'M GUILTY, GUILTY
GUILTY AS A GIRL CAN BE
COME ON BABY CAN'T YOU SEE,
I STAND ACCUSED OF LOVE IN THE FIRST DEGREE
GUILTY,OF LOVE IN THE FIRST DEGREE

VERSE TWO

SOMEDAY I BELIEVE IT, YOU WILL COME TO MY RESCUE
UNCHAIN MY HEART YOU'RE KEEPING AND LET ME START ANEW
THE HOURS PASS SO SLOWLY
SINCE THEY'VE THROWN AWAY THE KEY
CAN'T YOU SEE THAT I'M LONELY
WON'T YOU HELP ME PLEASE

CHORUS

ONLY YOU CAN SET ME FREE
'COS I'M GUILTY, GUILTY
GUILTY AS A GIRL CAN BE
COME ON BABY CAN'T YOU SEE,
I STAND ACCUSED OF LOVE IN THE FIRST DEGREE
GUILTY,OF LOVE IN THE FIRST DEGREE

GUILTY OF LOVE, GUILTY OF LOVE IN
GUILTY OF LOVE, GUILTY OF LOVE IN
GUILTY, OF LOVE IN THE FIRST DEGREE

AND THE JUDGE AND THE JURY
THEY ALL PUT THE BLAME ON ME
THEY WOULDN'T GO FOR MY STORY
THEY WOULDN'T HEAR MY PLEA

CHORUS REPEAT FADE
