Waking up I see that everything is ok
The first time in my life and now it's so great!
Slowing down I look around and I am so amazed
I think about the little things that make life great
I wouldn't change a thing about it
This is the best feeling

This innocence is brilliant, I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect, please don't go away, I need you now
And I'll hold on to it, don't you let it pass you by

I found a place so safe, not a single tear
The first time in my life and now it's so clear
Feel calm I belong, I'm so happy here
It's so strong and now I let myself be sincere
I wouldn't change a thing about it
This is the best feeling

This innocence is brilliant, I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect, please don't go away, I need you now
And I'll hold on to it, don't you let it pass you by

It's the state of bliss you think you're dreaming
It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry

It's the state of bliss you think you're dreaming
It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry

It's so beautiful it makes you want to cry

This innocence is brilliant, it makes you want to cry
This innocence is brilliant, please don't go away
'Cause I need you now
And I'll hold on to it, don't you let it pass you by

This innocence is brilliant, I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect, please don't go away, I need you now
And I'll hold on to it, don't you let it pass you by

    condolence to you and your family..
    i'm sure, wherever Morgan and Keigan are now, they're both happy..

    life may be short for them (poor 11month old..haven't even had his/her 1st b-day yet ;C) but it's good to know they won't have to experience hardships in life like what i experience now..

    for me, all i'd wish to be is go back to my childhood years..when living was all about toys and mom and dad...by looking back to those mem'ries, you'd realize..how did i grow up to be like this?when i used to look so cheerful and innocent...

    I found this song accidentally...it get my attention. The rhythm is so saddening and the way Avril sang it, just tearing my heart apart. And the lyrics is awesome and so true.

    I had never felt my life is so great. He kept me warm and bliss. It was the 1st time i felt like wanna cried because of happiness. I lost him once, i can't make it twice. Thank God for letting him came back to me, and i don't know how it would last. Everything seems so calm and great now but i pray to God. Please let it stay, forever. Please, don't go away...

    This song so great and true. It just gone through me and touched my heart. How beautiful life will be just with a little more appreciation and love. Thanks Avril for this meaningful song. I prayed whenever i heard this song.

    I love this song. Avril is awesome thats for sure. alot of people are mentioning their meaning of the song having to relate about love and innocence. there is no right or wrong meaning . last week, however, at my 11 yr old neices remains(a very tragic accident took her life as well as her 11 month old cousin), this song was playing at the fumeral home with 3 montors of pictures flashing of Morgan and her wonderful life she lived. having read the lyrics, it really does fit, especially the line that says about finding a safe place, no tears and as the rest of the verse played, it really fit the situation and a beautiful 11 yr old innocent girl. RIP Mrogan and Keigan we love you. and thanks to avril for an amazing song!!!

    to me, this song is a true peice of art. she sings how innocence is beautiful, and how we shouold cherish it forever. that we should never let it pass. and that it is the thing that makes you smile, laugh and cry. never let it pass you. you never know when you will see it again.
