For Shira

lyrics

Hopesong

Smoldering skies
No compromise
Cynical lies
Breeding despise

News of the day
Plague and decay
Anger holds sway
No shades of grey

Reaching for meaning
Trying to cope
Where can we turn
How can we hope

Turn to the future
True and agleam
There is our hope
There is my dream

You are my hope
You are my song
One day you’ll sing
And I’ll sing along

Truth on the run
Progress undone
Hatred homespun
Conspiration

Time running short
Too much to sort
Twist and distort
Instead of support

Reaching for meaning
Trying to cope
Where can we turn
How can we hope

Turn to the future
True and agleam
There is our hope
There is our dream

You are my hope
You are my song
One day you’ll sing
And I’ll sing along
