lyrics

HOPE

Swift I fell into a hurricane
Senses crash
Like a brakeless freight train
Measured words don’t always hit their mark

Two times the winner, three times the loser
Come back I promise
I promise to be better
Mary, Mary you wish I were somebody else

Sold my coat to a stranger for a bus fare
I have to leave this city
Find me somebody somewhere
Heaven knows or maybe heaven doesn’t have a clue

Russian River, Santa Rosa, California
I picked up a van
Start to head for the border
Countries, rivers and roads drew me towards you

Hold to hope
Show me love
I hit the ground and you make me run

Swift I fell into a hurricane
Of love and life
And I’m never going back again
To the way I walked, the life I thought I knew

Somebody stop me if I’m rambling on
See I’ve found the love
I was searching for
For certain this journey’s been worth every mile

Hold to hope
Show me love
I hit the ground and you make me run
