Hope Fades – (my first work) A song

by May 3, 2004Poetry

Verse one:
Here we are.
You and me, on the road to nowhere
On this hopeless journey
How can I give you everything I have,
when I have nothing myself?
The endless sun beating down on our backs
the lonely nights, you crying out in pain
so much pain…

Chorus:
Hope fades away underneath the endless sky!
Oh why won’t the road end?
WHY can’t we rest?
Why can’t we be home again!
I just want to be home again….

Verse two:
They said we can make it,
but I see the hope fading in your eyes
I feel the hope fading from my body.
I see our simple lives have changed forever…

Chorus:
Hope fades away beneath an endless sky!
Oh why won’t the road end?
why can’t we rest?
Why can’t we be home again?
I just want to be home again…

Verse three:
I know what you and I must do
but how can we see it through?
How could they excpect all this from us?
We are too small
for a journey so big.
for a journey so big…

Hope fades away….
Hope fades away..
For all of us….
forever.
