Hope

Hope, they say it springs eternal.
I search for your face, listen for your laugh
Can’t keep myself from searching the crowd
Although i realise you’re not there.

I hear a laugh that sounds like yours,
I twist and turn to find
Another boy, another guy
Not the one that springs to mind.

Until i leave, the hope’s still there
It just won’t leave my heart
I hope, i pray, and all the day
I want you from the start.

As I drive away i realise
that you’re not going to come
The hope, it dies
Disappointment comes, I let it in
It’s a wave of freezing fire.

Hope
