Billy Joel An Innocent Man (12 Gardens Live) Lyrics

Last updated: 09/27/2009 11:00:00 AM

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 & 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
Oh oh 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 ev’ry 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

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
Although this is a fight I can lose, the accused is an innocent man
Oh oh oh oh 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
Oh oh I am an innocent ma-ya-yan, oh yes I am, an innocent man

Oh oh oh oh oh oh ohhhhhh
