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 look At the young I'm only willing to hear you cry Because I am an innocent man I am an innocent men 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's 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'm 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 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 Oh, ho ho ho
