Sherrie Austin – Innocent Man lyrics

Standing in line at the grocery
Staring back at the trash magazines
Martians say earth girls are lonely
Well that's no news to me

In the parking lot I saw two cowboys
Fighting for a handicapped space
So what is a girl to do now boys
To make sense of this place

There's too much wrong in the world tonight
Too much I can't understand
I wanna board up these windows
And turn out these lights
And lie down with an innocent man
Lie down with an innocent man

I don't need a strong man's protection
I don't want a faithless man's love
Just a little respect and affection
Would be more than enough

Cause I've been shot down by love's aimless arrows
And I've shot a few wild ones myself
But these days the choices are narrow
And you've got to aim well

There's too much wrong in the world tonight
Too much I can't understand
I wanna board up these windows
And turn out these lights
And lie down with an innocent man
Lie down with an innocent man

I've been holding my heart like a lantern
Looking out for just one honest face
All the noise out there won't matter
If I can trust in just one quiet place

There's too much wrong in the world tonight
Too much I can't understand
I wanna board up these windows
And turn out these lights
And lie down with an innocent man
Lie down with an innocent man
