Hope - Lyrics by America


Lyrics
Written by gerry beckley, ©1994
Found on hourglass.
There's a clock timing the world as it turns
There's a man marking the candle as it burns
Keeping track of every minute that remains
Still we hope somehow
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna turn out fine
There's a light shining beyond the southern cross
Burning bright for everyone of us who's lost
More than faith more than a reason to go on
Rise on up knowing
You're gonna win the fight
It's gonna turn out fine
You gotta hope it'll be alright
Come on and hope it'll turn out fine
Yeah, hope it'll be alright, please
When the night turns to the deepest shade of black
At that point there is no reason to turn back
High above angels are falling from the sky
Lift your heart knowing
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna turn out fine
You gotta hope it'll be alright
Come on and hope it'll turn out fine
Yeah, hope it'll be alright, please
You gotta hope, ya gonna win the fight
Come on ’n hope with all your might
Yeah hope it's gonna be alright, please
Millions of people alone in the dark
Awaiting a moment of hope
Please
You gotta hope (whenever times get tough) it'll be alright
Come on and hope (and when the road is rough) it'll turn out fine
Yeah, hope (just when you've had enough) it'll be alright, please
You gotta hope (whenever times get tough) you're gonna win the fight
Come on and hope (and when the road is rough) with all your might
Yeah, hope (just when you've had enough) it's gonna be alright, please
You gotta hope (whenever times get tough) it'll be alright
Come on and hope (and when the road is rough) it'll turn out fine
Yeah, hope (just when you've had enough) it'll be alright, please
You gotta hope, you're gonna win the fight
