Hogbin Ian – Goodbye To Innocence lyrics

We all need to say goodbye to innocence
It's just a childhood fancy
Goodbye to innocence
At one time we all gotta say goodbye
Goodbye to innocence
We all gotta say, we all gotta say
Goodbye to innocence
And though this is true
I can't bear to leave it behind
Just a few short years ago
I had my whole life ahead of me
And now that I am grown
I have grown so afraid
I've said goodbye to many things
But the one thing I always thought would stay
Has up and went and walked away
And I find...
Simple, fickle life of mine
Always the one who was left behind
Chaos and disorder ruled my life
My whole life I spent terrified
Sometimes people are so cold
I never meant to be so bold
In my, in my choice of speech
I never thought I'd feel so weak
So weak
(So weak)
Things I thought they would get better
The age of innocence has disappeared
Out of my life
And now that's why
I know I gotta say goodbye
Chorus x2
