Hope

She rolls another cigarette
It's the last one of the day
She tries blind the feelings of regret
but they won't ever blow away

She fills her mind with thoughts of her baby girl
The only light left in her life
Can you tell me where my future is?
I didn't see it slip away
The colour slowly drained right out of life
and all is cold and grey

The old man won't let her go
she's tried many times before
but courage always failed to show
when her hand reached for the door

She fills her mind with thoughts of her baby girl
The only light left in her life
Can you tell me where my future is?
I didn't see it slip away
The colour slowly drained right out of life
and all is cold and grey

But a new day starts with promises
there's a rainbow over head
a new light conquers hopelessness
and she stands at her daughter's bed
Come on sweetheart now it's time to go
out of darkness into light

Can you tell me where my future is
I didn't see it slip away
the colour slowly drains back into life
and hope is here to stay
