THEME/PROMPT: HOPE (hopeful, hopeless, hope I win, hope I lose, hope I take a trip to Europe soon lol, etc.)

Didn't have a lot of time, so a quick 20-minute lyric for now. May revisit and put this to music soon.


Feeling down
Feeling out
Just might drown
In waves of doubt
At what cost
Break off the chains
When all else is lost
Hope Remains

Took a chance
Stopped halfway
Refused to dance
Refused to play
Went home to pout
Imagined pains
Despite all doubt
Hope Remains

It's never ever too late
An open book is everyone's fate
'Cause there's a spark within
That's all you really need to begin

Ready now
To open up
To this I vow
I'll drink the cup
The work is hard
But it's in my veins
So no holds barred
And remember, Hope Remains

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Nice job. I like a lot of the visuals, and I think we all need to have hope at this time.

This is quite beautiful and inspiring. The sort of message I think many need right now, perhaps more than ever. I'll check back when you add the music.

Wonderful optimism is conveyed in this nicely concise and honest feeling lyric. I like the perspective you bring to the topic and the hook is great. One I need to hang on to more often!

I like the attitude and spirit here that perserveres. Good writing!

This is a really great write, that bridge is killer, I was going to copy it to comment but really the entire thing is stunning. Great work, skirmish or not!
