Billy Dean — Innocent Bystander lyrics

(Billy Dean/David Gates)

I was mindin' my own business
When you came in dressed to kill
I knew right then, I was in trouble
But not of my own free will
Now I have to say in my defense
I ain't done nothin' wrong
Just circumstantial evidence
Is all you got me on

I was just an innocent bystander
Caught up in love
And since when was that a crime
If sayin' that I'm wanting you is slander
And you're all I'm thinkin' of
Then I'll gladly do my time
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/billy-dean-innocent-bystander-lyrics.html ]
There's no jury, their right mind
Would convict someone like me
Cause the way you walk, the way you talk
I could plead insanity
But I'm prepared to tell the whole truth now
I don't need no alibi
You just put me on that witness stand
And I will testify

I was just an innocent bystander
Caught up in love
And since when was that a crime
If sayin' that I'm wanting you is slander
And you're all I'm thinkin' of
Then I'll gladly do my time

I was just an innocent bystander
Caught up in love
And since when was that a crime
If sayin' that I'm wanting you is slander
And you're all I'm thinkin' of
Then I'll gladly do my time
I was just an innocent bystander
