Innocent Request

Armatrading, Joan
I know the place where lovers go
You wanna take me there I know
Cos you believe in me
And I believe in you
But there's other things

I don't want you to think
That our love is going under
Just need time for me
And my thoughts to freely wander
This troubled world
And I worry for myself
Where lies my destiny

Every person feels their strength
Now and then they doubt their worth
Friendships bond
Boys and girls
Sisters, brothers
Lovers, too
But we need some air
To find ourselves
Find ourselves

And there's no need for guilt
It's an innocent request
You get space to breathe
And I get time to think
When we're apart
We appreciate our love
I know it

Life is more than fairy tales
Sometimes sad
Sometimes frail
You owe it to yourselves
To take a moment to reflect

Don't think
That our love is going under
Just need time for me
And my thoughts to freely wander
This troubled world
And I worry
Where lies my destiny

When we're apart
We appreciate our love
We know we've got the best
We know it
