​My Innocent

This song is by Matthew Ryan.

I've forgotten everything
Except for the way it fell
It's just a blue and black silhouette
Scraping through an autumn chill
You know the years come slowly
Up until they are gone
And though you still hold the memory
You can't recall who wrote the poem

Where are you?
Where are you now my innocent?

I was raised below the highlands
That's where I learned to talk with god
We used to talk about miracles
I used to wish he'd lean down and lift me up
And on those nights feeling locked out
I'd walk the garden of refineries
With a burning in my head and chest
I'd imagine a torch burning bright inside of me

Where are you?
Where are you now my innocent?

Now I'm kneeling in the bedroom
Of innocence and innocence lost
And I am overcome
By the warm breath of what was
I can't see in these young eyes
This fear so real and sharp
You know the sins of the father
They never travel too far

Where are you?
Where are you now my innocent?
