Guilty of sin yes I confess
I can't deny
Strong in the heart
But weak in the flesh
I never meant to do you wrong

I swear the soul gets blistered along the way
But when you hurt the things you love
You gotta know

If you mean hope, if you mean fear
Of those words that you've been longing to hear
If you mean faith, if you mean love
Then I'm guilty, guilty of all the above

Can't hide the truth, I stand accused
Don't ask me why
I question every move and thought I've had
That's goin' on inside

I swear the soul gets blistered along the way
But when you hurt the things you love
You gotta know

If you mean hope, if you mean fear
All those words that you've been longing to hear
If you mean faith, if you mean love
Then I'm guilty
And if it's so wrong to feel this right
I can't help it and I won't fight
If you mean faith, if you mean love
Then I'm guilty, guilty of all the above

It's not my first offence and it won't be the last
My lips are sealed
I would not change a thing except what's in the past

If you mean hope, if you mean fear
All those words that you've been longing to hear
If you mean faith, if you mean love
Then I'm guilty of loving you
If you mean hope (guilty)
If you mean fear (never said I was innocent) heal me
Wrap your arms around me
If you mean, if you mean love and it's you what I want
And I won't fight
And if it's wrong, it feels right
Guilty, guilty
