"Heart Of Innocence" as written by Gary Baker, Paula Carpenter, Frank Joseph Myers and Jessica Ann Simpson....
Whoo yeah.
Sometimes I wake up in the dark 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 you're in my heart.
Baby some day some place I'll hold you in my arms.

I have a gift for you.
Something I've held on to.
Waiting for your sweet caress. (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.
Here in the dark, I am cradled in peace.
No loss from yesterday to harm me at night.
No tears to dry.
No sad memories.
There's a heart to hold and I will safely keep
The strength that's in my soul
Until you come to me.

I have a gift for you. Something 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.

Every night I make a wish before I fall asleep. (I'll make a wish.)
That destiny will take your hand and lead it to me.
Oh.
I have a gift for you.
Something I've held on to.
Waiting for your sweet caress. (You know I'll be waiting there for you.)
No ribbon has been untied from all that I hold inside.
And only you will possess
This heart of innocence.
Oh oh

    General CommentWaiting for your perfect soulmate. The one who will never hurt you, but love you for always. Even though you haven't met them yet, they'll be here soon so you should save your love for that special person.

    General CommentMike go it.

    It's about waiting to "make love" with the right guy and not just sleeping with any Joe Blow that comes.
