Lyrics to song Goodbye to Innocence by Madonna

I don't wanna say goodbye

There are some who believe that
I owe them something
But they're wrong, I owe
nothing to no one but myself
And there are some who say they created me
But only my parents will have that acclaim
I took it from there, I am to blame

Chorus:

Say goodbye to anonymity
I have to (have to, have to) say goodbye
To privacy, but most of all
To innocence repeat 3 times

My life is not a game that I play to entertain you
And if you can do it better, then
you're welcome to my fame
I'm not gonna waste my time
correcting myths and rumors
You believe what you wanna believe

chorus

I don't wanna say goodbye
I don't need a reason to cry
Kinda makes me wanna
Kinda makes me hafta

Stop and think about it repeat 3 times
Do I want to?

I don't (getting up and down)
I don't (getting up and down)
I don't (getting up and down)

Up-up, d-d-down, up-up-up

I don't (getting up and down)
I don't (getting up and down)
I don't (getting up and down)

Up-up, d-d-down, up-up-up

Listen up
It always comes down to this repeat

Some people have a snake at
the base of their spine
That would suck out your life, that
would take all your time
They're called feeders
They're not believers but you must not fear it
They're takers

You know you better stop, stop and
think about it repeat 3 times

Your innocence repeat 3 times

I don't wanna say goodbye to innocence
I don't need a reason to cry, innocence

Hold on to your innocence
Hold on (hold on, hold on), hold on to innocence
Hold on

Stop and think about it, say goodbye,
think about it repeat twice
