Taylor Swift – “Innocent” Lyrics

Guess you really did it this time
Left yourself in your war path
Lost your balance on a tight rope
Lost your mind trying to get it back

Wasn’t it easier in your lunchbox days
Always a bigger bed to crawl into
Wasn’t it beautiful when you believed in everything
And everybody believed in you

It’s alright, just wait and see
Your string of lights is still bright to me
Oh, who you are is not where you’ve been
You’re still an innocent
Still an innocent

Did some things you can’t speak of
But tonight you live it all again
You wouldn’t be shattered on the floor now
If only you had seen what you know now then
Wasn’t it easier in your firefly catching days
When everything out of reach someone bigger brought down to you

Wasn’t it beautiful running wild ’til you fell asleep
Before the monsters caught up to you
It’s alright, just wait and see
Your string of lights is still bright to me
Oh, who your are is not where you’ve been
You’re still an innocent

It’s okay, life is a tough crowd
Thirty two and still growing up now
Who you are is not what you did
You’re still an innocent
Time turns flames to embers
You’ll have new Septembers
Every one of us has messed up too

Minds change like the weather
I hope you remember
Today is never too late to… be brand new.

CHORUS

Lost your balance on a tight rope
It’s never too late to get it back

    It’s a beautiful song. Taylor is a good girl and aI know that a lo of people might think that what Diddy said wasn’t so nice but come on, I really do believe that he was a little drunk that night people do stupid thing when they’re drunk. And he’s very regret and I think that seh

    Is anyone able to tell taylor swift to take a singing class ? MTV award show is a show for the whole world, for entertaining, also bringing humor and laugh to our life, not a show for mourning or depression. Am I the only one think it is very selfish way for taylor swift to perform like that in a public TV show ? At least Kanye call himself Douchbag–in a delight way, it is hilarious, he has sense of humor.

    @Lara:

    hahahaha, i think you mean kanye west not diddy. i get that they’re both black male rappers, but they don’t look any more alike than faith hill and taylor swift for being white blonde female country-pop singers.

    Wow, really. Says:

    Way to milk the attention a year LATE.

    M Says:

    hun, have you been to twitter? (1) Dear Taylor Swift, Kanye took your microphone not your virginity… its time to move on… 2) Dear, Taylor Swift. I’mma let you finish, but thank God you finally found someone new to sing about, so you can leave @JoeJonas alone. 3) Dear Taylor Swift. He stole your microphone. It’s been a year. Get over it. It’s not like he broke up with you on the phone or something…) when ppl ask about the lyrics and who wrote the song THEY ARE DOING SO IRONICALLY. it’s mocking.

    btw did she cut her hair?

    HALES Says:

    wow.. still milking it a WHOLE YEAR LATER!
    it’s not like he interrupted her first award speech, she won LOTS of awards before that 2009 VMA award.
    stop milking it, taylor. please stop.

    Lala Says:

    well at least finally there was enough shots at kanye, and enough annoying taylor swift forgiving, and enough kanye calling himself a douche, that everyone can get over it and enjoy his new music

    poor tay....milk it Says:

    Taylor, you rode your victim mode for a year, got awards that many felt you didn’t deserve, Kanye apologized and paid his dues enough….stop milking it and move on. These women and PR agents that make women the victims for years ,….whining, playing the martyr, victim, back to the false hero..it is all a PR game. I’m surprised she didn’t try to say Kanye is gay, too. Taylor, Kate G, Jennifer, Chelsea…people see through you and your gimmicks. Enough!

    Jan Says:

    A year ago she elegantly chose to basically ignore Kanye’s stuff and took the high road. What was she thinking writing a song about it? Doesn’t look good on her. Seriously, I never noticed what a bad singer she is..yuck….and I’m a huge fan!

    @Lara:
    Why is it that people always give allowance and make excuses for a 32 year old drunken man, but will continue to pick on a then 19 year young innocent girl and continue to do so – as if being drunk excuses bad behavior. Kyane is known for his outbursts – were they all because he was drunk? maybe he has changed this year, but you can’t necessarily tell by his foul lyrics.

    Please give the young lady the same consideration you all want to give to a 32/33 year old man.

    Sean Says:

    Good grief!! Move on Swift!! You act as if Kanye molested you and took your “innocence”

    cutie Says:

    @cam:

    NO one gives excuses for a 32 yr drunken man. The public and media including all music industry gave tay swift enough awards, publicity and applaud for the whole year regarding her very dreadful live perform on TV.
    It was a MTV show last night, taylor swift’ perform and singing was very horrible to listen to.
    You tell people to give young lady the same consideration, you should tell people to give her the same critise for bad singing. Like people criticize Miley cyrus.

    BillieJoe Says:

    Taylor is a boring, dull robot.

    No life in her.
    She’s the most useless overpaid overrated untalented hack in the music business. I compare her to Justin Bieber; both marketed for sad desperate girls. Taylor doesn’t have a love life so she makes her videos like her fantasies. To have the perfect “love story” and happy fairytale ending with sappy lyrics.
    Makes me feel gay listening to her.

    Chuck Says:

    Fack you all you stupid nugger lovers who support the black crybaby instead of the young white girl.. You’re all evil!

    Nice song btw there Kanye. LMAO stupid shat! Idiots!

    Adelaide Says:

    I don’t think Taylor is milking it at all…in fact if you didn’t know what had happened you probably wouldn’t even know this song was about Kanye. Taylor is an amazing songwritter and what Kanye did was wrong. I think Taylor did a great job of not really making the whole thing a bigger deal than it already was. Kanye’s the one who wrote an apology song that he felt the need to share with the press…he’s the one milking it because he knows he screwed up…and his career was going downhill. Don’t get me wrong, I like Kanye’s songs, but I’m sick of his crybaby antics…just because you don’t win an award every single time doesn’t mean you aren’t a good artist Kanye. get over it. real artists don’t care about awards.
