Susan Ashton
Innocence Lost

Gone away, the days of wish and wondering
Far away, like a vision in my mind
The child has grown and left me here alone
Looking back to what was left behind

Lullabies and pennies in a wishing well
Sad goodbyes to friends of make believe
A love so pure, a treasure
Now buried in the sea of me

Milton lost his paradise, Dorothy lost her way
Vincent lost his sanity, Thomas lost his faith
Hoover lost the second time, Sigmund lost his friend
Me, I lost my innocence and I want it back again

A tug-of-war is going on inside of me
A calloused heart that wants to make a change
While time prevails fighting tooth and nails
Keeping me set in my ways

Marco found the orient, Gepetto found his boy
Lincoln found a unity that Lee could not destroy
Lindy found the other side, Gershwin found the stage
Me, I found a stubbornness that seems to grow with age

As I dream of where I'll go, may I learn from where I've gone
And take the memories that I hold into tomorrow

Milton lost his paradise, Dorothy lost her way
Vincent lost his sanity, Thomas lost his faith
Hoover lost the second time, Sigmund lost his friend
Me, I lost my innocence and I want it back again
I had it once before and I want it back again
