the wrong man was convicted lyrics – barenaked ladies

who? s lonely now?
which one of us is suffering?
who? s in his cups?
which one of us recovering?

who likes to look at pictures
and cries, but way too late?
who doesn? t want to change a thing
accepting it was fate

the wrong man was convicted
you know i did the deed
i thought that you would wait for me
your wants i needn? t heed

the wrong man lies beside you
and waits for you to wake
and all because i lacked conviction
the judgment? s my mistake

who? s breathless now?
who only hyperventilates
who? d die for you?
who? s dying inside anyways

which one of us is sunshine and
which one? s growing dim?
while two men dream of you at night
do you just dream of him?

the wrong man was convicted
you know i did the deed
i thought that you would wait for me
your wants i needn? t heed

the wrong man lies beside you
and waits for you to wake
and all because i lacked conviction
the judgment? s my mistake

who? s lonely now?
who? s reaching out to no one?
who? s lonely now?
it takes one to know one

i changed my mind
you said that i could change it back
i wanted sp*ce and now
change has fallen through the cracks

if i? m again beside your body
don? t tell me where it? s been
it? s cruel, unusual punishment
to kiss fingerprinted skin

the wrong man was convicted
you know i did the deed
i thought that you would wait for me
your wants i needn? t heed

the wrong man lies beside you
and waits for you to wake
and all because i lacked conviction
the judgment? s my mistake

it? s my mistake
it? s my mistake
it? s my mistake
