Lyrics

I STAND ACCUSED W&M Franciscus Henri (Albert Music)
I stand accused by all the things I should have done
I stand accused by all the songs I should have sung
I stand accused by all the books I should have read
I stand accused of living by those who are dead

I stand accused by all the things I should have been
I stand accused by all the things I should have seen
I stand accused by all the things I should have known
I stand accused by all the things I should have shown

I lift my hands up high and I cry I’m not to blame
I didn’t write the rules, I just play the game
I’m standing by the fire but I didn’t light the flame
I am not the only one, we are victims without name

I stand accused of dreaming by those who haven’t slept
I stand accused of weeping by those who haven’t wept
I stand accused of lying by those who know no truth
I stand accused of being old when I’ve tasted youth

Splendid!
Yer working a Harry Chapin vibe here. Easily more nimble than Chapin's work. Great job!
Thank you for sharing your great material here at MJ!

No one can accuse you of resting on you laurels, Franc. As creative and compelling, as ever, both lyrically and arrangement-wise. Thanks.

I stand accused
Very trippy, if that is a word. A very 60's vibe going on. Great arrangement.
