Age Of Innocence

Age Of Innocence

On & on they cannot stop
From sunrise on to the morning frost
Sold to the sound of a ticking clock
Age of the innocence all but lost

Again & again they couldn’t stop
Carried on till the penny drops
Aim of the innocent is all I’ve got
Age of the innocence is all but gone…

To be there, to be there,
To comfort, it’s all there
Age of the innocent is all I’ve got
To be there, to be there, to comfort
It’s so rare, it’s all there, it’s all there
The age of decay that time forgot
The age of the innocent is all I’ve got…

Far away in a distant land…
From Lancashire to the desert sands
They play a bad hand with a knowing eye
Then sold to the man as another lie
Again & again it always cost
It carries on, it never stops
Across the towns & decaying blocks
The age of the innocence is all but gone
Is all but gone

To be there, to be there
To comfort, it’s so rare
Age of the innocent is all I’ve got
To be there, to be there, to comfort

It’s so rare, it’s all there, it’s all there
The age of decay that time forgot
The age of the innocent is all I’ve got

Is all I’ve got
Is all I’ve got
Is all I’ve got

Time & again it always cost
Again & again they couldn’t stop
Again & again & again & again

The age of the innocent is all I’ve got

To be there, to be there
To comfort, it’s so rare
The age of decay is all I’ve got
To be there, to be there
To comfort, it’s so rare
The age of decay that time forgot
The age of the innocent is all I’ve got

 

Thanks to Nick Yates for transcribing both the lyrics & guitar tab.

The tabs are designed so that you can strum along to the tracks. The tabs are designed so that you don’t have to play a right-handed guitar upside down to enjoy them!
