Track Name: Hope
And hope rings
Out to you like a new year
Kicks your addidas in a new gear
and makes you laugh till you cry

But oh no
Bills get paid when there’s no funds
Overdraft fee takes a credit run
Leaves you eating on mac and cheese

But we manage to get by
Your heart alone must be worth something when you die
Cause we can transplant it

All my hopes and dreams they fade
Replaced with the fear we may all go away
But somehow we land on the other side
Better off I guess that’s what CNN tells me

Drip drop
Things go dry in a bad way
The heat shuts off but it’s ok
Cause sweaters are free at Goodwill

And you’ve found
A lead on a job in the classifieds
Pay seems high for an experienced eye
Personal shopper doesn’t sound so bad

But we manage to get by
Your heart alone must be worth something when you die
Cause we can transplant it

All my hopes and dreams they fade
Replaced with the fear we may all go away
But somehow we land on the other side
Better off I guess that’s what CNN tells me

That’s what TV news tells me
That’s what the prematurely gray haired Anderson Cooper tells me.
