Hopeful Lyrics

Supposedly it was a wise wise man
Who said it's better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all, but never to have loved.
How many times is the truth that you take to be true
Just truth falling apart at the same speed as you
Until it all comes away at a million degrees
And you're just a few pieces of fallin' debris

And she's hopeful, hopeful, for me
I'm coming out of the dark clouds

Then she went away and she packed all her love and
I could not believe it how little there was and
I stood in the cold kitchen with nothin' to say
Who'd keep the whole world spinning when she went away yeah?
She kept telling me about the good things I deserved
That I wanted somebody I'd mistaken for her
But one look in my eyes and she'd know she was wrong
So she wouldn't look back at me until she was gone
How many times did you give all your love and
Find out it was so far from far from enough?
I followed her out into the street in the rain
And the whole world stopped spinning and just went up in flames

And she's hopeful, hopeful, for me
Coming out of the dark clouds
She's hopeful, hopeful, for me
She says it to me often

The sunlight corroded and the day started to fail
The rocks in the road sharpened shadows to nails
The fence posts were empty and so were the trees
Had the bluebird of youth sung its last tune for me
I've seen her around now with someone new I don't know
She likes greed-eyed boys who are haloed in hope
But I know the look in his eyes and I know all the old signs
It's just a couple more curves before his own road unwinds
These days I'm feelin' better about the man that I am
There's some things I can change and there's others I can't
I met someone new now I know I deserve
I never met someone who loves the world more than her
She has been through her own share of hard times as well
And she's learned how to tear out the heaven from hell
Most nights I'm alright still old rocks roll downhill
But she says I'll get better, she knows that I will

And she's hopeful, hopeful, for me
I'm coming out of the dark clouds
She's hopeful, hopeful, for me
I'm coming out of the dark clouds
She's hopeful, hopeful, for me
I'm coming out of the dark clouds, coming out of the dark clouds
