"Hope" is a chill ukulele and piano folk pop song about dreams, plans, hope and survival.

lyrics

Our imaginations
Building the anticipation
We cling to this excitement
We hope to generate
We fill our minds with these
Driving dreams
As we stumble
Wait
Along and wait
Wait and wait

Intoxicating, life changing
moments we crave
Rarely manifest
From the plans we make
Time times we sigh
Thrilled to be alive
Come along to little, too late
But we wait...
Hope is a skill of survival

When the day finally comes
The excitement has long past
And while it might be completely pleasant
It can't compete, no it just can't compete
With the vivid swirls of imagination

Intoxicating, life changing
moments we crave
Rarely manifest
From the plans we make
Time times we sigh
Thrilled to be alive
Come along to little, too late
But we wait...
Hope is a skill of survival

So continue these fantasies
Covet lasting memories
Hope is all we have
When all else is gone

Intoxicating, life changing
moments we crave
Rarely manifest
From the plans we make
The time times we sigh
Thrilled to be alive
Come along to little, too late
But we wait...
And wait....
And wait...
And wait...
Hope is a skill
Hope is a skill
Of survival
Of survival
Hope is a skill
Hope is a skill of survival
