Jessica Simpson – Heart Of Innocence lyrics

[Written by Paula Carpenter*, Jessica Simpson, Frank Myers, Gary Baker]
[Zomba Enterprises Inc./Swear by It Music/Bmg Songs/Above The Rim (Ascap)]

Sometimes I wake up in the dark of night
And in my mind there's a picture of you
I know someday this dream will come alive
So for now your shadow will do
I've never seen your face
But I know your in my heart
Maybe someday some place
I'll hold you in my arms


I have a gift for you
Something that I've held on to
Waiting for your sweet caress
No ribbon has been untied
From all that I hold inside
And only you will possess
This heart of innocence

I lay my head down on a pillow of white
Your in the dark I am cradled in peace
No thoughts from yesterday to haunt me at night
No tears to dry, no sad memories
It isn't hard to hold
And now I'll safely keep
The strength that's in my soul
Until you come to me


Every night I make a wish before I fall asleep
That destiny will take your hand
And lead you to me


[spoken] I love you
