Billy Joel An Innocent Man Lyrics    [  Edit Lyrics  ]
Some people stay far away from the door

If there`s a chance of it opening up

They hear a voice in the hall outside

And hope that it just passes by

Some people live with the fear of a touch

And the anger of having been a fool

They will not listen to anyone

So nobody tells them a lie

I know you`re only protecting yourself

I know you`re thinking of somebody else

Someone who hurt you

But I`m not above

Making up for the love

You`ve been denying you could ever feel

I`m not above doing anything

To restore your faith if I can

Some people see through the eyes of the old

Before they ever get a look at the young

I`m only willing to hear you cry

Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man

Oh yes I am

Some people say they will never believe

Another promise they hear in the dark

Because they only remember too well

They heard somebody tell them before

Some people sleep all alone every night

Instead of taking a lover to bed

Some people find that it`s easier to hate

Than to wait anymore

I know you don`t want to hear what I say

I know you`re gonna keep turning away

But I`ve been there and if I can survive

I can keep you alive

I`m not above going through it again

I`ve not above being cool for a while

If you`re cruel to me I`ll understand

Some people run from a possible fight

Some people figure they can never win

And although this is a fight I can lose

The accused is an innocent man

I am an innocent man

Oh yes I am

An innocent man

You know you only hurt yourself out of spite

I guess you`d rather be a martyr tonight

That`s your decision

But I`m not below

Anybody I know

If there`s a chance of resurrecting a love

I`m not above going back to the start

To find out where the heartache began

Some people hope for a miracle cure

Some people just accept the world as it is

But I`m not willing to lay down and die

Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man

Oh yes I am

An innocent man
