"Innocent Eyes" as written by Delta Goodrem and Vince Pizzinga....
Do you remember when you where seven?
And the only thing that you wanted to do
Was show your mum that you could play the piano
Ten years have passed
And the one thing that lasts
Is that same old song that we played along and made my mumma cry

I miss those days and I miss those ways
When I got lost in fantasies
In a cartoon land of mysteries
In a place you won't grow old in a place you won't feel cold and I'll sing

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Seems I'm lost in my reflection
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Find a star for my direction
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
For the little girl inside who won't just hide
Don't let me see mistakes and lies
Let me keep my faith and innocent eyes
My innocent eyes

Do you remember when you were fifteen?
And the kids at school called you a fool 'cause you took the chance to dream
In the time that's past and the one thing that lasts
Is that same old song that we played along and made my daddy cry

I miss those days and I miss those ways
When I got lost in fantasies
In a cartoon land of mysteries
In a place you won't grow old in a place you won't feel cold and I'll sing

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Seems I'm lost in my reflection
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Find a star for my direction
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
For the little girl inside who won't just hide
Don't let me see mistakes and lies
Let me keep my faith and innocent eyes
My innocent eyes

Under my feeling under my skin
Under the thoughts from within
Learning the subtext
Of the mind
See creation how where defined

Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Seems I'm lost in my reflection
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
Find a star for my direction
Da da da da da da da da da da da da
For the little girl inside who won't just hide
Don't let me see mistakes and lies
Let me keep my faith and innocent eyes
My innocent eyes

    General CommentI love this song! I can't believe that only 2 people have made a comment! It's obviously about Delta's childhood, looking back on her life and her innocence as a child. And she compares herself to the child Delta -
    "For the little girl inside who wont just hide
    Don't let me see mistakes and lies
    Let me keep my faith and innocent eyes".

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song, about memories... and sometimes memories you would prefer not to have. Like that moment when suddenly you discovered you were too grown up for cartoons, or the relationship you used to have with your parents, that they would be so proud of you that they would cry when you did something simple. This is an indulgence for the innocence inside, a few childish things she allows herself to do, "for the little girl inside," to prove to herself that all hope isn't gone, that she is still an innocent, deep inside. It's a very thoughtful song, and the piano is just gorgeous. Delta has a wonderful voice.
