Hope You Will – Written March 1995 (Aged 20)

Hope You Will

listening to sounds at night
hide away
they will give you a fright
when we came out of the caves
stealing from our own past
we were the cowboys and indian braves
i could have moulded you
just like clay, but you were okay
somethings are helping us live day to day
really, i hope you are winning
because you cannot look back
the end is just the beginning
boys and girls run and hide
just like so many years ago
when i first felt the rain
and i played in the snow
give me a comic book hero
one who is so brave
so my sanity will be saved
dreams can be real
a way that you can feel
but they are always so high
and it can be so hard to climb the hill
sometimes you need some hope
i hope you will
