​Innocence

This song is by The Normals and appears on the album A Place Where You Belong (2001).

Innocence, you were taken so slowly
It hit us suddenly
And now I can't leave my room
'Cause the lights of the city
Are just hiding from the dark

Innocence, we never got to say goodbye
But the glory of redemption
Is the wisdom that we find
Has taken its place

So this is growing up
To find the things that
You weren't old enough to know
Are the things you never wanted
As another pretty girl
Falls for another dirty lie

Innocence, we never got to say goodbye
But the glory of redemption
Is the wisdom that we find
Has taken its place

I miss that simple life
The one that never existed
Like a night in from the town
Doesn't mean you're not still there

Innocence, we never got to say goodbye
But the glory of redemption
Is the wisdom that we find
Has taken its place
