Sarah Buxton Innocence Lyrics

Last updated: 03/10/2010 10:00:00 AM

It's the first time that I've been here
Since I was here with him
I remember all the wild flowers
Waving in the wind

Life was an undiscovered river
I was jumping in head first

It was sink or swim, do or die
Sneaking out on summer nights
Stealing wine from my pa
The thrill of not getting caught

And now and then I miss those days
But coming back to this place
I realize it ain't him I miss
It's that young girl, wide-eyed, first love
One time innocence, yeah

We ran off to the corn field
Just outside the county fair
There were butterflies in my stomach
And fireflies in the air

He tried hard not to show it
Oh, but he was just as scared as me

And it was sink or swim, do or die
Sneaking out on summer nights
Stealing wine from my pa
The thrill of not getting caught

And now and then I miss those days
But coming back to this place
I realize it ain't him I miss
It's that young girl, wide-eyed, first love
One time innocence, yeah

And coming here
Has made me come to this
The one thing I can't get back
Is the one thing I miss, yeah

And it was breaking rules, flying blind
What you see through younger eyes
It wasn't what I thought it was
Man, I swore he was the one

And now and then I miss those days
But coming back to this place
I realize it ain't him I miss
It's that young girl, wide-eyed, first love
One time innocence, yeah

It's that young girl, wide-eyed, first love
One time innocence, yeah
It's that innocence
