And I want you to be my superwoman.
(Boy, I will be your friend forever)
Well, gone and leave me that heart and you can get mine.

Girl, I wanna share my existence.
(And through time my love will stay persistent, boy)
All of me is what you getting.
Let the world be the witness.

If love is the crime, I'm down for it (If love is the crime)
Let love be the judge.
