    My palms are sweaty as i take the stand
    My knees are shaking and my heart is beating faster than ever
    As the bailiff swears me in I began to think of what i'm going to say
    This is my one and only shot to plead my case
    I still cant believe i'm being accused of being in love
    I've had too many heart breaks to ever adventure to this place again
    But i digress and my testimony begins:
    It was the summer of 94 some friends and I were playing ball at the courts
    It was just a normal day with the same ole folks hanging out
    There wasnt anyone there to impress, no one to make you go "D***"
    until she walked in and i must admit i had to say "D***"
    To make a long story short we did exchange numbers
    and yes we began to hang out and talk over the phone
    But thats normal when you're getting to know someone, right???
    Needless to say, we began to hang out A LOT
    but that was only because we had so much in common
    That doesnt mean anything, right??
    Sometimes i did catch myself thinking of her when we weren't together
    but thats only because i was concerned about her
    And yes its true that i got jealous sometimes
    but thats only because i was looking out for her
    So you see your honor, i'm not in love
    The only thing i'm guilty of is being a good friend
    As i leave the stand i'm feeling pretty good about my case
    The jury goes out to deliberate my trial
    I'm feeling good right about now that i cant help but to smile
    The jury comes back in and they read the verdict
    "We find the defendent guilty of all charges" and my smile quickly fades
    I was ordered to give myself completely and totally
    Now that i look back on the verdict i can truly say
    I'm happy that i was found guilty of all charges..............
