Another page has turned
Another bridge has burned
What is the lesson learned this time

I stare into the sun
To try and blind my eyes
Instead I see a shadow of its light

And when nothing is left in this world for me
And the journey is left to an endless sea
There is

Hope

And when there's no way out
The barrel of this gun
You throw your weapons down and run
I don't know what this means
don't think I ever will
That's when I close my eyes and be still

And when nothing is left in this world for me
And the journey is left to an endless sea
There is

Hope

Lead on I will follow
Fireworks will be here tomorrow
I will beg steal or borrow
But I'm not gonna lay down
No I'm not gonna lay down
When there is

Hope
