Track Name: The Innocence of Time
Time has a secret
And quietly keeps it
Out of reach from you and I
An eventual turn will leave a world to unlearn
And leave the vision far behind

And when my vision starts to fade
I will not question why
It’s just the wind and the rain
Or the ice in my veins
It’s the innocence of time

It’s hard to believe
Or not to believe
When opportunities fail
The currents are cast
And the tides hold you fast
A ship without its sail

And when my hair starts to grey
I will not question why
It’s just the wind and the rain
Or the ice in my veins
It’s the innocence of time

And when my vision starts to fade
I will not question why
It’s just the wind and the rain
Or the ice in my veins
It’s the innocence of time

It’s hard to believe
Or not to believe
When opportunities fail
The currents are cast
And the tides hold you fast
A ship without its sail

And when my hair starts to grey
I will not question why
It’s just the wind and the rain
Or the ice in my veins
It’s the innocence of time
