I thought that was supposed to feel good
And if you were really mine
I guess it would
I didn't fall in love
'Cause it was the right thing to do
I just went ahead and fell for you

(chorus)
Oh, somewhere down along the line
I guess that love became a crime
This contradiction makes no sense
This is punishement
I feel like this is judgement day
I'll raise my hand stand up and say
I don't believe I'm innocent
This is punishment

Truth is your heart was never mine to take
Now I'm stuck in a feeling
That I'll never shake
I prayed for it to go
God knows I want it to stay
But here I am loving you either way

(repeat chorus)

Bridge:
You'll never know all the things I can't say
And I'll never know if it's better this way

(repeat chorus)

Oh, somewhere down the line
I guess that love became a crime
This contradiction makes no sense
(This is punishment)
This is punishment
This is punishment
I feel like this is judgement day
I'll raise my hand stand up and say
I don't believe I'm innocent
(This is, this is, this is punishment)

(fade)
