"Guilty" as written by and Barry Alan/galuten Gibb....
Shadows falling, baby, we stand alone
Out on the street anybody you meet got a heartache of their own
(It oughta be illegal)
Make it a crime to be lonely or sad
(It oughta be illegal)
You got a reason for livin'
You battle on with the love you're livin' on

You gotta be mine
We take it away
It's gotta be night and day
Just a matter of time
And we got nothing to be guilty of
Our love will climb any mountain near or far, we are
And we never let it end

We are devotion
And we got nothing to be sorry for
Our love is one in a million
Eyes can see that we got a highway to the sky
I don't wanna hear your goodbye

Pulse's racing, darling
How grand we are
Little by little we meet in the middle
There's danger in the dark
(It oughta be illegal)
Make it a crime to be out in the cold
(It oughta be illegal)
You got a reason for livin'
You battle on with the love you're buildin' on

You gotta be mine
We take it away
It's gotta be night and day
Just a matter of time
And we got nothing to be guilty of
Our love will climb any mountain near or far, we are

And we never let it end
We are devotion
And we got nothing to be sorry for
Our love is one in a million
Eyes can see that we got a highway to the sky

I don't want to hear your goodbye
Don't want to hear your goodbye
I don't want to hear your
And we got nothing, and we got nothing to be guilty of
Our love will climb and mountain near or far, we are
And we never let it end

We are devotion
And we got nothing to be sorry for
Our love is one in a million
Eyes can see that we got a highway to the sky
Don't want to hear your
And we got nothing to be guilty of, my love

    General CommentOne of the greatest duets of all time!
    I think it's about two people in relationships who do not love the people they are in the relationship with. So they meet secretly to have an affair.

    It also could mean a couple having sex out of wedlock, but I think the adultry thing makes more sense especially when they say:

    Barbra: "You battle on with the love you're livin' on
    You gotta be mine"

    Barry: "You battle on with the love you're buildin' on"

    I think they're talking about their other relationships with people they don't love.
