"Innocence" as written by Avril Ramona Lavigne and Evan David Taubenfeld....
Waking up, I see that everything is okay
The first time in my life, and now it's so great
Slowing down, I look around, and I am so amazed
I think about the little things that make life great

I wouldn't change a thing about it
This is the best feeling

This innocence is brilliant
I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect
Please don't go away
Cos I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

I found a place so safe, not a single tear
The first time in my life, and now it's so clear
Feel calm, I belong; I'm so happy here
It's so strong, and now I let myself be sincere

I wouldn't change a thing about it
This is the best feeling

This innocence is brilliant
I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect
Please don't go away
Cos I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

It's a state of bliss; you think you're dreaming
It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
It's so beautiful, it makes you wanna cry
It's a state of bliss; you think you're dreaming
It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
It's so beautiful, it makes you wanna cry

It's so beautiful, it makes you wanna cry
This innocence is brilliance
It makes you wanna cry
This innocence is brilliance
Please don't go away
Cause I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

This innocence is brilliant
I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect
Please don't go away
Cos I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

    General Commentawww omg this is such a nice song! I want to hear it!
    I guess it's about that feeling of absolute happyness and everything feeling perfect and not wanting that feeling to go away. Because when it does you crash hard and feel terrible.

    General CommentA twist from Avril's other two albums. This, and the other songs on this album are HAPPY! You can tell she's at a great point in her life with Derek, and she's just trying to express that in this song.

    General Commenti personally think this is about the first time she has sex, and she wakes up in the same bed as whoever she did it with, and now all the fears of doing it the first time are gone, and she is happy she cant go back.

    General Commenti think she's talking about how she is absolutely in love with this guy. head over heals can't live without him. the catch: he possibly doesn't realize it. and she's trying to tell him how what they have is so special.

    wow, i'm done being corny.

    General CommentBeing a BIG avril fan with my boyfriend I thought it was about her WEDDING DAY:) he however thought it was about HER WEDDING NIGHT and HER FIRST TIME. But I defintely think it was about her wedding day and the other stuff that happened that day.
