Lyrics

Supposedly it was a wise wise man Who said it’s better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at all, never to have loved. How many times does the truth that you take to be true Is just truth falling apart at the same speed as you Until it all comes away in a million degrees And you’re just a few pieces of fallin’ debris And she’s hopeful. hopeful. for me. I’m coming out of the dark clouds She went away and she packed all her lovin’ I could not believe it how little there was I stood in the cold kitchen with nothin’ to say Who’d keep the whole world spinning when she went away yeah? She kept telling me about the good things I deserve That I wanted somebody I’d mistaken for her But one look in my eyes and she’d know she was wrong So she wouldn’t look back at me until she was gone How many times did you give all your love And find out it was so far from far from enough? I followed her out into the street in the rain And the whole world stopped spinning and just went up in flames And she’s hopeful. hopeful, for me. I’m coming out of the dark clouds She’s hopeful. hopeful, for me. She says it to me often The sunlight corroded and the days started to fail The rocks in the road sharpened shadows to nails The fencepost were empty and so were the trees Had the bluebird of use on its’ last tune for me I’ve seen her around now with someone new I don’t know She likes greed-eyed boys who are haloed in hope But I know the look in his eyes and I know all the old signs Just a couple more curves before his own road unwinds These days I’m feelin’ better about the man that I am There’s some things I can change and there’s others I can’t I met someone new now I know I deserve I never met someone who loves the world more than her She has been through her own share of hard times as well And she has learned how to tear out the heaven from hell Most nights I’m alright still all rocks roll down hill But she says I’ll get better, she knows that I will And she’s hopeful. hopeful, for me I’m coming out of the dark clouds She’s hopeful. hopeful, for me Comin’ out of the dark clouds, comin' out of the dark clouds The word is as the world is Everybody’s gonna hurt like hells some times The word is as the world is Everybody’s gonna hurt like hells some times some times
