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 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



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 livin' 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 beggin' you

Before it ends

Just tell me where to begin



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



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 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
