» Innocence

I see you on the swing, taking wing
I can see that life is beautiful to you
You cant see the future as I do
And thats a good thing

You completely lost in innocence
Abandoned to the zen of happiness
Celebrating life without pretense
A while longer

You play today as one still in the garden
How precious are these days without a clue
But on the day you reach for your desire
You will see that you are naked too

So soon they come to interrupt your play
To teach you how to live another way
Calculating every move you make
Learning how to hide from your mistakes
How to earn the love you take

God only knows who made this birthday cake
A closet full of fig leaves by mistake
Some rite of passage
