A Toast To The Hopeful

lyrics

A Toast to The Hopeful
We lay awake at night
Staring straight up towards the sky.
Never thinking of the "how?"
But just wondering bout the "why?"

To all of those who want a new way to live.
To all of those who want change for a drink.
For all of those who pray for the day
they're not down & out cause they
never gave up, never gave up, never gave up.

I hope this fire burns out before you breathe in my smoke.
The way this city dreams when they are ignoring your screams.
And may the children see that we can live together.
And may the parents see there are people sleeping in the
Streets.

I hope this fire burns out before you breathe in my smoke.
A world that’s really free, with equal opportunity.
And may the white house see this is no silly pipe dream.
And may the whole world see we can do it if we try.

Hey It's Terry from The Jukebox Romantics! I'm a pretty positive guy. These are pretty sad songs. There's some "hope" sprinkled in there though. PMA?
