HOPE ALONE
Indigo Girls


let's not drag this out

everything's in motion

though i've only ever loved you kind

and with devotion

i remember when i met you

and even from the start

i thought one day you'd probably just come home

and break my heart


it's funny what you know

and still go on pretending

with no good evidence

you'll ever see that happy ending


you

looking for your distance

and sensing my resistance

you had to do your will


i

had to learn the hard way

we were just an empty dream too big

for hope alone to fill


i know i'm a dreamer

(i know that i'm a)

so i'll give you that

(dreamer)

still i hope i'm more than just a place

(still i hope i'm more)

you laid your hat

(than a place you laid your hat)

you're a land of secrets

(you are its only)

its only citizen

(citizen)

and though i paid my dues

(though i paid)

i was never allowed in

(i was never allowed in)

and so i am a stranger

(so i am a stranger)

especially today

(especially today)

as i get sad and lonely

and you get your way


you

were looking for your distance

and sensing my resistance

you had to do your will


i

i had to learn the hard way

that we were just an empty dream too big

for hope alone to fill


holding on for change i know

we never stood a chance

(no we never stood a chance)

so i could only wait

and watch you slip right through my hands

(watch you slip right through my hands)


you

were always looking for your distance

and sensing my resistance

you had to do your will


i

i had to learn the hard way

we were just an empty dream too big

for hope alone to fill
