I guess you really did it this time
Left yourself in your war path
Lost your balance on a tight rope
Lost your mind trying to get it back

Wasn't it easy in your lunchbox days
Always a bigger bed to crawl into
Wasn't it beautiful when you believed
In everything And everybody believed in you

Chorus
It's alright
Just wait and see your string
Of lights are still bright to me Oh
Who you are is not where you've been
You're still innocent (x2)

Did some things you can't speak of
But tonight you live it all again
You wouldn't be shattered on the floor now
If only you had seen what you know now then

Wasn't it easier in your firefly catchin days
When Everything out of reach
Someone bigger brought down to you
Wasn't it beautiful
Running wild til' you fell asleep
Before the monsters catch up to you

Chorus
It's alright
Just wait and see your string of
Lights are still bright to me Oh
Who you are is not where you've been
You're still an innocent

It's okay
Life is a tough crowd
32 and still growing up now
Who you are is not what you did
You're still an innocent

Time turns flames to embers
You'll have new Septembers
Everyone of us has messed up too
Lights changes like the weather
I hope you remember Today is
Never too late to Be brand new
Ohhhhhh

Chorus
It's alright
Just wait and see your string
Of lights are still bright to me Oh
Who you are is not where you've been
You're still an innocent

It's ok Life is a tough crowd
32 and still growing up now
Who you are is not what you did
You're still an innocent(x1)

Lost your balance on a tight rope
It's never too late to get it back

    this song is about Kayne West. She is hurt by what he did, but has forgiven him, but will never forrget what he did. He realised that he made a mistake, which he regrets.

    Al her songs represent what most girls go through
