Hope in the Air
- 147 Views
There is a man that I know For seventeen years he never spoke Guess he had nothing to say He opened his mouth on judgment day I listened with all of my might But was scared by the look in his eyes Like he'd already lost the fight And there was no hope ever in sight No hope in the air, No hope in the water, Not even for me, Your life serving daughter I have seen men provoked I have watched lives revoked And I looked at my life and I choked And from there, no more ever has spoke Why fear death? Be scared of living Our hearts are small and ever thinning There is no hope ever of winning So why fear death? Be scared of living But I won't give up that quick My life is a candle and a wick You can't put it out but you can't break it down In the end, we are waiting to be lit There's hope in the air There's hope in the water But no hope for me, your life serving daughter Speak minds handed down to you By the lies handed down by your truth Your angels that dance at your will Will mask your scrambling youth I forgave you your shortcomings And ignored your childish behavior Laid a kiss on your head And before I left said, "Stay away from fleeting favour" Oh, pick up your rope, Lord Sling it to me If we are to battle, I must not be weak. And give us your strength, World and your food and your water Oh I am your saviour, Your life serving daughter There's hope in the air There's hope in the water But sadly, not me, your life serving daughter
