INNOCENT (Robert J. Purvis and William Elliott)


Innocent you

Innocent you


You've been talking in your sleep

I've been listening to the secrets that you keep

Locked inside you and nobody has the key

(Wake up wake up, we gotta talk it out)

(Wake up wake up, we gotta talk it out)


You've been pouring out your heart

Are you hurting me, you're tearing me apart

Hey, I'm the one who always loved you from the start

(Don't it make you feel like crying?)

(And don't it make you feel like crying?)

(Ah, don't it make you feel like crying?)


Innocent you

Innocent you


Paying for it baby, you're the first to love when love gets close to you

Saying sorry, baby, won't make love come back or let you off the hook


Don't you tire of being admired?

Do you wonder what I'm thinking of?

A love so uninspired

I never never gonna wake you to inquire

(I'm just gonna leave you lying)

(I'm just gonna leave you lying)

(You know I'm just gonna leave you lying)


Innocent you

Innocent you

Innocent you

Innocent you

Innocent you

Innocent, innocent you.
