Avril Lavigne – Innocence lyrics
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 love this song. Avril is awesome that's 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!

    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.

    This lyrics means that everything is easier when you're innocent and fragile. When you're still unknown to the world where violence, heartbreak, and loneliness occurs. She misses those times. The times when she could do whatever she wants and people won't judge her. Those times where happiness is more important than money. In short, innocence is what we lack and yet still what we aim for. (if that makes sense at all haha).

    The music video kinda sheds some light on this. It's all about the feelings she had to someone. About, when she is about to give herself up to this man. She's then starts see the truth and she begins to fear him herself and the world. The first few scenes was about this. Then it goes to her running away. Its like she realized the truth not only about him but also herself. She runs away and she looks a little deeper and sees the innocence still inside of her and she embraces it.

    This song make me remember my ex. Yeahh, I love him before. But not now. I hate him. He have an affair with his ex. His ex was very kind to me. But she's a betrayer. She knows that he my boyfriend. But now, I got a guy who truly love me sincerely. I know that. He told me that. And I trust him. I love him more than that moron guy. Plus, this guy can attract me just with his smile :)

    The best song I had a moment like this song describes once with the one guy I ever truly loved. It was at school we was in a private talk and he told me not to cry (my dog died day before) and look to the future. I told him I was in love with him and he ansered "i know. i know you. i understand you, and you me" and my heart beated for him and him alone, just for that moment, and I nerly cried. I had moments like that with my dog all the time but after she died that's the only moment in that total innocence I can remember. Oh sweet sam how I love you!
