about

'Hope' is a free track for the good people of my mailing list who have supported me along the journey. It was written after looking back at a journey i took down HWY 1 in California.

lyrics

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 someone I’m not

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, started heading for the border
Countries, rivers and roads drew me towards you

Hold to hope
You showed me love
Hit the ground
You make me run
Hold to hope
You show me love
You give me love and you help 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 that I was searching for
For certain the journey’s been worth every mile

Hold to hope
You showed me love
Hit the ground
You make me run
Hold to hope
You show me love
You give me love and you help me run
