Innocence Maintained 
by Jewel Kilcher
Transcribed by Elizabeth Timberlake

  The tab remains the same throughout the entire song.  To figure out her
plucking pattern and the rest of the lyrics, listen to the tape-it's
fairly easy.  Enjoy!

Ophelia drowned in the water
Crushed by her own weight
Hitler loved the blue eyed boys
and it drove him to hate
Birds always grow silent before the night descends
      D                                              G
Cause nature has a funny way of breaking what does not bend

I saw a man with a hole he could not fill
He couldn't make the world work for him 
and didn't work and still (??)
There was a hole inside his soul           (same as verse 1)
that whiskey could not still
So he found himself a girl to love
while babies choked in the windowsill

        D            C
We've made houses for hatred
It's time we make a place where
   D        C            G
People's souls may be seen and made safe
    D            C             G
be careful with each other these fragile flames
  D         C                    D       C      G
Innocence can't be lost it just needs to be maintained

You totally haxord that entire second verse:

"A hero's torso built of steel and Novocain
His heart a bitter beat inside a bloodless frame
There was a hole inside his soul a manicure couldn't fill
So he found himself a whore to love while daisies chocked the windowsill"

It is also unfinished. Did you forget the verse after the chorus?

"A small town in Ohio
Two boys were filled with violence
And darkness spreads is wings of hate and ignorance
We are given to a god to put our faith therein
But to be forgiven we must first believe in sin"

Repeat chorus

Then, there's a bit of a bridge that follows the same as the chorus, then the chorus is repeated again.

Please, don't kill anymore Jewel songs.
