Lyrics

Hopeful © 2002 Kaplan

Dates the page and caps her pen
Thumbs the paisley pattern of her friend
Words infused with hopes to lose
The top story of the eleven o’ clock news

Guards the crosswalk after school
Finds some peace in the simplicity of youth
Why do you think the sky is safe so far above you?
Why do you think that time is saved somewhere inside you?
And for now remains…

Hopeful Lives despite the fear
Hopeful Breathes despite the air
Hopeful Prays despite the war
Hopeful Lives despite the fear

Kate caves in.

Friends and colleagues spew their lies
Warped opinions help captains choose their sides
Why do you think the sky is safe so far above you?
Why do you think that time is saved somewhere inside you?
And for now remains…

Hopeful Lives despite the fear
Hopeful Breathes despite the air
Hopeful Prays despite the war
Hopeful Lives despite the fear

I don’t believe in the idea of absolute
I don’t mean to sound naïve
I have been made in shades of symmetry and truth
It carries me along

Hopeful Lives despite the fear life ends
Hopeful Breathes despite the air – a rough inhale
Hopeful Prays despite the war prayer brings
Hopeful Lives despite the fear

Kate caves in.
