This is the story of 2 childhood sweethearts
Inseparable till 1 broke the other 1's heart
She wants 2 leave him but I would die 1st
Baby, don't leave me, I didn't mean 2 hurt U
By heaven I swear

I am a witness 4 the prosecution of a hate n this love affair
I who am guilty of nothin' but always wantin' U 2 b there
Mama, I swear I love U, I always have
N school I once traded chairs
If I couldn't feel U, if I couldn't b near U
I wanted what was urs
Now I just want U 2 care

I am a witness, yeah (Witness 4 the prosecution)
Witness 4 the prosecution
I am a witness 4 the prosecution

Give me 20 years, gimme the electric chair
But nothing's gonna stop me, nothing's gonna stop me
From killin' the hate n this love affair (Witness 4 the prosecution)
Whoo

But don't U leave me, baby, leave me, baby

N school I once traded chairs
If I couldn't be near U, if I couldn't feel U, huh

Tell me, baby, tell me do U care? Yeah (Witness 4 the prosecution)
