"Innocent" as written by and Mike Oldfield....
I know you'll never stay the same.
In time, most of us lose it.
But I'm hoping, just the same,
You'll shine and learn how to use it.
Speak to me, like the very first speak.
You are magnificent when you're innocent.
Laugh to me, like the very first laugh.
You are from heaven sent when you're innocent.
My hands hold you and you adore,
Blue eyes turn my direction.
Surprise in everything and your
Body moves in perfection.
Smile to me, like the very first smile.
You are magnificent when you're innocent.
Walk to me, like the very first walk.
You are from heaven sent when you're innocent.
Sunrise, here comes another day.
Cow jumps over the moon, now.
Sometime, you will look back and say,
"Today, I'll sing my own tune."
Sing to me, like the very first sing.
You are magnificent when you're innocent.
Laugh to me, like the very first laugh.
You are omnipotent when you're innocent.
Speak to me, like the very first speak.
You are magnificent when you're innocent.
Smile to me, like the very first smile.
You are from heaven sent when you're innocent.
Sing to me, like the very first sing.
You are magnificent when you're innocent.
Laugh to me, like the very first laugh.
You are omnipotent when you're innocent.

    Song Meaning"Cow jumps over the moon" is from the nursery rhyme "Hey Diddle Diddle." The songwriter is reflecting on his child or children. There are a lot of 'firsts' mentioned in the lyrics : speak, laugh, smile, walk, sing. Childhood is a wonderful time, and he wants to cherish his children while they are still innocent. Even gives advice to them that innocence is a wonderful gift to keep and use to their benefit. "Innocent" thinkers maintain their view of the world as good, and they have experiences others miss. Assume the best about others until proven wrong. The world will become a warmer place.
