Innocence

I’m not the girl I used to be
And that may be a good thing

I’m not girl you used to know
I left her outside in the snow

My mind’s been changed with silly things
My heart’s been changed by stupid dreams

I’m not the girl I used to be
I’ve lost my innocence

I laugh at dirty, perverted jokes
I’m the one who tells them most

I’m not that positive, I admit
I can’t find peace within this mix

I’ve lost my faith so many times
I keep asking the same question

Why
Why
Why

I’m not the girl I used to be
I’ve lost my innocence
Don’t you see?

My loss of innocence has condemned me
I can’t be rescued, this far out in sea

Just because
I’m not the girl
I
Used
To
Be

'Song' is one of the finest poems that I have ever read. A find.
