"My Innocence" as written by and Greg/dioguardi Wells....
I was born a fighter, I was born on a rainy day,
I've had my share of pain, but you missed most of that
So many other things you had to do, you looked after you,
Do you remember what you did?, do you know just what you missed?,
And do you care 'bout what I have to say?

[Chorus:]
You took my innocence away, I never had the chance to,
You broke me in with your mistakes, thanks for the breakthrough
But you won't bring me down, I always come around,
You took my innocence away, but the best of me stayed

It could be your blood, running through all my veins,
That ties me to your fate, if I could just close my eyes,
I black out all the reasons why, we're still in this place
What you want is what you've got, you should've tried to make it stop
I guess you couldn't find a way to let me in

[Chorus]

loneliness has filled my soul,
And it creeps inside and takes control,
And I don't know how to begin giving up on everything

My innocence,
You took my innocence away, I never had the chance to,
You broke me in with your mistakes, thanks for the breakthrough
But you won't bring me down, I always come around,
You took my innocence away, but the best of me stayed
But the best of me stayed, but the best of me stayed,
Oh, but the best of me stayed

    General CommentI thought "Confessions of a Broken Heart" summed up my life pretty well.
    Now take out the pretty, replace it with a "hugely," and that's me.
    But I'm still a virgin, so I don't think that's what she meant,.
    It really isn't right to insult someone's sexuality while they're baring their soul. You can go to Rumors and post comments about her sluttiness there, not here.

    General Comment"Her innocence" is not her virginity... this song is to her dad and I think she is referring more to the happy childhood she missed out on because her dad caused her so much pain at such an early age... my dad is wonderful, but this song is really emotional and I like it, along with all the other songs... it's a great album

    General CommentYes its definitely about her dad heres a big clue:

    "It could be your blood,
    running through all my veins,
    that ties me to your fate"

    This is very interesting not only cos of the blood tie but a really important bit is "that ties me to your fate". If you look in the papers you will see loads of stories about Lindsay and her drink and drugs problems. I think this is a hint that Lindsay thinks what has destroyed her dad will destroy her too.

    This is a fantastic album I just hope Lindsay can pull herself together before its too late.

    General CommentI love this song, and think lindsay should get back to how she used to be, so she can release more stuff like this.

    General CommentAnother song to her daddy.
    But I'm pretty sure she took her own innocence away..or at least, some boy did...
