What does ADIA mean?

Adia
"Adia" is a song by Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan that originally appeared on her 1997 album Surfacing. It was co-written by McLachlan and her longtime producer, Pierre Marchand. On VH1 Storytellers, McLachlan also said about the song, "I'm not quite sure how to explain this one but, uh, I guess more than anything it's about my problems in dealing with feeling responsible for everyone else".The song starts with no musical introduction. The lyrics begin "Adia, I do believe I've failed you. Adia, I know I've let you down." The chorus says that "We are all born innocent. Believe me Adia, we are still innocent." At times the music is simple and soft, with little more than a piano accompanying McLachlan. The song does not explain the exact relationship between the singer and Adia, whether they are friends, relatives or lovers. The video shows McLachlan singing directly to the camera in various public places, including a busy intersection, an office lobby, a supermarket aisle and in front of a store selling wedding dresses, where McLachlan kneels to grasp the hand of a child facing away from the camera. "Adia" was McLachlan's first top 5 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number three. Though it only remained at the position for one week, the song did spend six consecutive weeks at number four and seven consecutive weeks at number five, totaling thirteen weeks in the top ten. "Adia" was the twentieth most successful song of 1998 in the U.S. The song also performed well in McLachlan's native Canada, peaking at number three for three non-consecutive weeks on RPM. It stayed in the top ten for sixteen weeks.
