I once thought of love as a prison,
A place I didn't want to be,
So long ago, I made a decision
To be footloose and fancy-free.
But you came and I was so tempted,
To gamble on love just one time,
I never thought, I would get caught,
It seemed like the perfect crime.

(Chorus:)
Baby you left me defenseless,
I've only got one plea,
Lock me away, inside of your love,
And throw away the key.
I'm guilty,
Of love in the first degree.

I thought it would be so simple,
Like a thousand times before,
I'd take what I wanted, and just walk away,
But I never made it to the door.
Now babe I'm not begging for mercy,
Go ahead and throw the book at me,
If loving you's a crime, I know that I'm
As guilty as a man can be.

(Repeat Chorus)

(Tag:)
Love in the first degree.

(Alternate between Chorus and Tags and fade out)
