White Innocence Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

She drifted from some minor festival
Didn't look like any summer of love
Just a thousand weekend warriors in a muddy field
She was the hand to fit my glove

Funny thing, the innocence of the lonely
Funny thing, the charm of the young

See how she moves just like two angels
In white innocence
Yet one of them was on the run

The other's tapping at my car window
And I'm squinting through the sun
Trying to see if she's some child of the nineties
Or just another dangerous fantasy of mine

Yeah, white innocence, white innocence
White innocence, she was white innocence

A perfect hole was in her stocking
It made a perfect window to her heart
I could have moved among her waterfalls
Her misty curtains drawn apart

Did she see warm safety in my numbers?
To wanna hitch a ride this way
Felt like I was taking her to market now
To be sold as the last lot of the day

Funny thing, the distance of the lonely
Funny thing, the charm of the young

White innocence, white innocence
White innocence, white innocence
White innocence, white innocence
White innocence, white, white innocence

She pressed the button, lowered the window
Let her hand trail in the slipstream of the night
A frost from nowhere seemed to lick her fingers
I could have warmed them but the moment wasn't right

Obvious, she was headed nowhere special
Yeah, well, it was even obvious to me
I was doing some, some watching, some waiting
She'd been here before, most definitely

There was the promise of early bed-time
There was the promise of heaven on earth
Think I was sending out low-voltage electricity
Played it right down for what it was worth

She turned and looked at me in white innocence
And with the clearest eyes of forever gray
She rested one small hand for a second on my knee
I stopped the car, she walked away

Funny thing, the wisdom of the lonely
Funny thing, the charm of the young
Away you go now

White innocence, white innocence
White innocence, white innocence
White innocence, white innocence
White innocence, white innocence
White innocence, white innocence
