Lyrics: Innocence of a Child

This is a song my friend Liam and I wrote for our band’s album. Sadly it was never made and just remained as lyrics. I like to write songs with a meaning behind it; The song is about child abuse, and how it is vital it stops!

Verse 1
His toys are quickly thrown aside,
His family is torn apart.
We can’t help him if we tried,
His selfish parent have no heart.

They restrain him with their lies,
And keep his life behind closed doors.
No one can can hear his cries,
Or see him hiding on the floor.

Chorus
Whoa-o-o-o,
The innocence of a child,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Slowly torn away,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Bt we will keep them same,
WE kept those frightened souls.
Whoa-o-o-o,
The innocence of a child,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Hidden from the world,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Outside of their bedroom door,
We will keep them safe from-

Verse 2
She has fallen down again,
The victim to a loved one.
Watching the sun set,
Waiting for the day to be done.
But I hear yelling, I hear screaming,
The noise is enough to make you cry,
An ocean in the night (x3 loud, soft, whisper)

Chorus
Whoa-o-o-o,
The innocence of a child,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Slowly torn away,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Bt we will keep them same,
WE kept those frightened souls.
Whoa-o-o-o,
The innocence of a child,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Hidden from the world,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Outside of their bedroom door,
We will keep them safe from-

Verse 3
I’ll wipe your bloodshot eyes,
I’ll wipe your ice cold tears,
I’ll save you from the lies,
You’ve been fed for years and years.

(Guitar Solo)

Chorus
Whoa-o-o-o,
The innocence of a child,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Slowly torn away,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Bt we will keep them same,
WE kept those frightened souls.
Whoa-o-o-o,
The innocence of a child,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Hidden from the world,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Outside of their bedroom door,
We will keep them safe from-

Chorus
Whoa-o-o-o,
The innocence of a child,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Slowly torn away,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Bt we will keep them same,
WE kept those frightened souls.
Whoa-o-o-o,
The innocence of a child,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Hidden from the world,
Whoa-o-o-o,
Outside of their bedroom door,
We will keep them safe from YOU (hold you til end)
YOU (powerful, on last strum)
