An Innocent Man Lyrics

Some people stay far away from the doorIf there's a chance of it opening up
They hear a voice in the hall outsideAnd hope that it just passes by
Some people live with the fear of a touchAnd the anger of having been a fool
They will not listen to anyoneSo nobody tells them a lie
I know you're only protecting yourselfI know you're thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt youBut I'm not aboveMaking up for the love
You've been denying you could ever feelI'm not above doing anything
To restore your faith if I canSome people see through the eyes of the old
Before they ever get a look at the youngI'm only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an innocent manI am an innocent manOh yes I am
Some people say they will never believeAnother promise they hear in the dark
Because they only remember too wellThey heard somebody tell them before
Some people sleep all alone every nightInstead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that it's easier to hateThan to wait anymore
I know you don't want to hear what I sayI know you're gonna keep turning away
But I've been there and if I can surviveI can keep you alive
I'm not above going through it againI've not above being cool for a while
If you're cruel to me I'll understandSome people run from a possible fight
Some people figure they can never winAnd although this is a fight I can lose
The accused is an innocent manI am an innocent manOh yes I amAn innocent man
You know you only hurt yourself out of spite
I guess you'd rather be a martyr tonightThat's your decisionBut I'm not below
Anybody I knowIf there's a chance of resurrecting a love
I'm not above going back to the startTo find out where the heartache began
Some people hope for a miracle cureSome people just accept the world as it is
But I'm not willing to lay down and dieBecause I am an innocent man
I am an innocent manOh yes I amAn innocent man
