Det var en gang – for ganske lenge siden nå. En gang jeg ikke var så snill. Jeg har alltid hørt at på seg selv kjenner en andre. Det slår ikke alltid så godt ut det…

Den gangen – for ganske lenge siden – var det en uskyldig mann. Han ante ikke noe han. Ikke den gang og ikke nå. Han er fremdeles en uskyldig mann – og det forblir han nok.

Jeg har aldri nektet for det siden, men så er det nå sånn at en ikke trenger nekte – for noe som aldri ble sagt. Som sangen sier så kunne jeg trengt et godt forsvar – men klarer en noen gang å forsvare seg mot seg selv?

Because he’s all I ever knew of love

I’ve been a bad, bad girl
I’ve been careless with a delicate man
And it’s a sad, sad world
When a girl will break a boy just because she can

Don’t you tell me to deny it
I’ve done wrong and I want to suffer for my sins
I’ve come to you ’cause I need guidance to be true
And I just don’t know where I can begin

What I need is a good defense
‘Cause I’m feeling like a criminal
And I need to be redeemed
To the one I’ve sinned against
Because he’s all I ever knew of love

Heaven help me for the way I am
Save me from these evil deeds before I get them done
I know tomorrow brings the consequence at hand
But I keep living this day like the next will never come

Oh help me but don’t tell me to deny it
I’ve got to cleanse myself of all these lies ’till I’m good enough for him
I’ve got a lot to lose and I’m bettin’ high so I’m begging you
Before it ends just tell me where to begin

What I need is a good defense
‘Cause I’m feeling like a criminal
And I need to be redeemed
To the one I’ve sinned against
Because he’s all I ever knew of love

Let me know the way
Before there’s hell to pay
Give me room to lay the law and let me go
I’ve got to make a play
To make my lover stay
So what would an angel say, the devil wants to know

What I need is a good defense
Cause I’m feelin’ like a criminal
And I need to be redeemed
To the one I’ve sinned against
Because he’s all I ever knew of love

What I need is a good defense
‘Cause I’m feeling like a criminal
And I need to be redeemed
To the one I’ve sinned against
Because he’s all I ever knew of looooooooooooooooooooooooooove
