and i love billy more every time i listen to it! only a good, good man could write these lyrics!

Some people stay far away from the door
If theres 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
And the anger of having been a fool
They will not listen to anyone
So nobody tells them a lie

I know youre only protecting yourself
I know youre thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt you
But Im not above
Making up for the love
Youve been denying you could ever feel
Im 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
Im only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an innocent man
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 every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that its easier to hate
Than to wait anymore

I know you dont want to hear what I say
I know youre gonna keep turning away
But Ive been there and if I can survive
I can keep you alive
Im not above going through it again
Ive not above being cool for a while
If youre cruel to me Ill 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 youd rather be a martyr tonight
Thats your decision
But Im not below
Anybody I know
If theres a chance of resurrecting a love
Im 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 Im 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

Making a difference

A small boy lived by the ocean. He loved the creatures of the sea, especially the starfish, and he spent much of his time exploring the seashore.

One day the boy learned there would be a minus tide that would leave the starfish stranded on the sand.

When the tide went out, he went down to the beach, began picking up the stranded starfish, and tossing them back into the ocean.

An elderly man who lived next door came down to the beach to see what the boy was doing. Seeing the man's quizzical expression, the boy paused as he approached. "I'm saving the starfish!" the boy proudly declared.

When the neighbor saw all of the stranded starfish he shook his head and said: "I'm sorry to disappoint you, young man, but if you look down the beach, there are stranded starfish as far as the eye can see. And if you look up the beach the other way, it's the same. One little boy like you isn't going to make much of a difference."

The boy thought about this for a moment. Then he reached his small hand down to the sand, picked up another starfish, tossed it out into the ocean, and said: "Well, I sure made a difference for that one!"
