Hope. Hope gives you a reason to keep going and to keep believing. But what if hope was all there was? What if there wasn’t anything on the other end of that tunnel? What if hope was just a coping mechanism for an uncertain future? And moreover, where does hope come from? Have we convinced ourselves that the future is brighter, or is there actually a reason to believe that it will be? There’s a quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti that (coincidentally) expresses exactly what I was trying to say with this song:

There is hope in [people], not in society, not in systems, [not in organized religious systems], but in you and me.

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Hope is all there is and all there ever was
And everything else can fall away for all I care

If you take what you’re fed
And you never question it
If you wait for what you want
And never go after it
Where would that leave you?

You say you believe
In some far off dream
And I once believed
In something unseen
So when is that ship coming in?

Bridge:
Soon enough you figure out
That no one has it figured out
Soon enough you’ll see
They’re not that different from you and me

Alternate Bridge:
Show me that it’s true
Show me the real you
Show me that there’s more than hope
(The miracle is you and me)
