Lyrics WANTING YOU IS MY OFFENCE,
YOU HAVE ALL THE EVIDENCE,
NOW I WAIT FOR YOU
TO SENTENCE ME!
MUST I GO OR MUST I STAY?
WILL MY SKIES BE BLUE OR GREY?
ARE MY DREAMS TO BE
OR NOT TO BE?

THERE'S NO USE PRETENDING,
LOVE NEEDS NO DEFENDING,
WHAT IS THE VERDICT?
MY FATE IS IN YOUR HANDS!
YOU'RE MY JUDGE AND JURY,
WHAT DO YOU ASSURE ME?
WHAT IS THE VERDICT?
MY FATE IS IN YOUR HANDS!

IF THE CHARGE IS LOVING YOU,
THEN I'M GUILTY, DEAR!
TELL ME THAT YOU LOVE ME TOO
AND I'LL HAVE NO FEAR!
IT IS YOU I'M NEEDING,
FOR YOUR LOVE I'M PLEADING,
WHAT IS THE VERDICT?
MY FATE IS IN YOUR HANDS!
