lyrics

Hope

I want to give you so much hope
Give you a periscope
to see through these dark ages
Say you're waiting for love
It's waiting for you to pick up the phone and make the first move

This well is deep darker than the soil around it
Like teeth tearing into shoulder
A young, young boy started this fall
Now the fall and the boy are both getting older

I'll give you my flesh I'll give you my blood
I'll give you my sweat in tears now the gloves are off
Most of all I'll give you my love
Most of all I'll give you my love

There are many cuts and abrasions
Between the start of a plan and the seat of success
The boy comes man
Twisted stories and histories
Like a white rabbit around Parnell Street

I'll give you my flesh I'll give you my blood
I'll give you my sweat in tears now the gloves are off
Most of all I'll give you my love
Most of all I'll give you my love

You may be fighting with hate
Hate gets it's power from all that you put in it's box of tricks
We don't speak the language we don't have the code
So we're cutting our feet in the road on the bricks

I'll give you my flesh I'll give you my blood
I'll give you my sweat in tears now the gloves are off
Most of all I'll give you my love
Most of all I'll give you my love
