Innocence

I am defending a life that is ending
Why must I live with this?
Someone is dying and it leaves me crying
I can't reach heaven's bliss

I'm like a child that is lost in the wild
You take my quivering hand
You make me strong, and keep me going along
You guide me through this land

In time we've lost our innocence
Done some things that made no sense
With hurtful words that broke our hearts
Tore everything we loved apart
Write the words that flow from my mind
Catch the tears that fall from my eyes

This nation's at war, I can't see much more
Soldiers die in the sand
Blood and oil begin to boil
In death is no helping hand

I'm so frightened, but my visions you brighten
Heaven awaits in your kiss
I was lost in the past, but you're here at last
It's you that I always missed

In time we've lost our innocence
Done some things that made no sense
With hurtful words that broke our hearts
Tore everything we loved apart
Write the words that flow from my mind
Catch the tears that fall from my eyes
