Not too long ago, not too far away, ancient innocence
Not too long ago, not too far away, ancient innocence
Not too long ago, not too far away, ancient innocence
Not too long ago, not too far away, ancient innocence

I knew you, I never knew you
But I love her and she loved you
I tried to see into you
But the walls in your eyes wouldn't let me in

I never knew you
The table was laid for to many people
Restless and questioning, quietly wondering
What's it all about

But when you played, there was magic on your fingers
And when you played, it was a language of your own
And when you shared your song, like a moment it would linger
Like the sweetness in the silence of your soul

Not too long ago, not too far away, ancient innocence
So young and so delicate
Friendship, freedom, music, ego
He was the boy from London, he had eyes of his own
He could play what he felt, he would feel the unknown
Fragile eloquence

And when you played, there was magic on your fingers
And when you played, it was a language of your own
And when you shared your song, like a moment it would linger
Like the sweetness in the silence of your soul

Ancient innocence
Not too long ago, not too far away, ancient innocence
Not too long ago, not too far away, ancient innocence
