lyrics

She used to be one of the sunlit ones
A demeanour joyed and true
'Til life sucked the colour right out of her
Gave her a gloomy hue
When she wakes up in the morning
All she feels is pain
I don't want innocence lost by my hand again

I like my women with some naïveté
But of some controlling sense
More like I can shield the worst parts away from her
Be a lean line of defense
But when I lose myself I lose her too
And that cheered veneer is spent
I don't want innocence lost by my hand again

Sometimes I catch her face in an afterglance
Imagine the way she used to feel
All peaches and cream and a baby's dream
And I hope to God it's real
I couldn't save our souls from extinction
But I hope her heart still beats in vain
I don't want innocence lost by my hand again
Yeah, I don't want innocence lost by my hand again
