  • We set out for the lonely
    Before the break of dawn
    The city lights were blinking
    but everyone was gone
    Nothing to live or die for
    but we still risk it all
    and bet it on the future
    without a crystal ball

    Hope, hope for the best
    hope for the rest of our life
    till the day that we die
    no, never confess
    bury regrets in the sand
    while we reach for the sky

    My father used to tell me
    That nothing good is free
    But maybe that’s the difference
    Between my old man and me
    Not something you can pay for
    Not something you can buy
    It’s only in the moments
    that make you feel alive

    Hope, hope for the best
    hope for the rest of our life
    till the day that we die
    no, never confess
    bury regrets in the sand
    while we reach for the sky
    (Hope, hope, hope,
    hope, hope hope)

    We’ll never see the ending
    Until it’s much too late
    They’ll read about our history
    and celebrate the date

    Hope, hope for the best
    hope for the rest of our life till the day that we die
    no, never confess
    bury regrets in the sand
    while we reach for the sky (hope, hope)

    Holding on to hope (hope, hope)
    I'll be holding on to...

    Hope, hope for the best,
    hope for the rest of our life
    till the day that we die...
