Somewhere in the BS13 thread someone posted the lyrics from CW, I think taken from the SH forum.

The second line goes:

I don’t think she’d ever known about innocence.

Maybe it's because of my non native ears, but after repeated listenings I rather hear:

I don’t think she['d] never known about innocence.


What do you think?

Yea that's what he says. "I don't think she never known about innocence".
Doesn't change the meaning though, she never knew about innocence.
Just the use of a double negative.
