Barenaked Ladies – The Wrong Man Was Convicted lyrics

Words & Music by Stephen Duffy & Steven Page

Who's lonely now?
Which one of us is suffering?
Who's in his cups? Which one of us recovering?
Who likes to look at pictures and cries, but way too late?
Who doesn't want to change a thing, accepting it was fate?

Chorus:
The wrong man was convicted
You know I did the deed
I thought that you would wait for me
Your wants I needn't heed
The wrong man lies beside you
And waits for you to wake
And all because I lacked conviction,
The judgment's my mistake

Who's breathless now?
Who only hyperventilates?
Who'd die for you! Who's dying inside anyway?
Which one of us is sunshine and which one's growing dim?
While two men dream of you at night, do you just dream of him?

Chorus

Who's lonely now?
Who's reaching out to no one?
Who's lonely now?
It takes one to know one
I changed my mind; you said that I could change it back
I wanted space, and now change has fallen through the cracks
If I'm again beside your body, don't tell me where it's been
It's cruel, unusual punishment to kiss fingerprinted skin

Chorus
