It’s hard to find strength in sadness
My eyes well up every time you sleep
I give you answers that gleam on the surface
Though the painful truth lingers deep

I try to comfort you with fabled tales
Where the hero saves the day in the end
Maybe it’s just a way to comfort myself
Giving hope to heroes that hardly ever win

Never stop believing in your heroes
They exist here because of your dreams
I put all my hope in your untainted heart
To become a hero with angel wings

A New Hope

The world violently perished
When man reaped what he sowed
Swallowing the light in darkness
Leaving time as the only comfort
To bury mistakes of the past

Few lived to see those days
Scavenging for food to get by
The life giving liquid of hope
Drained through broken hearts
Desolate like the ravaged earth

All was about lost to eternal night
Until a beam parted the darkness
Lighting a building in the distance
Whats left of humanity came together
To see hope growing inside


To Dream Again

Your eyes were so full of dreams
Now cold and devoid of light
Staring endlessly at the stars
Looking for hope that flew away
Waiting for its safe return

Your destiny was held in your hands
Then taken away within a blink of an eye
Leaving questions floating in darkness
With answers muted in the absence of hope
Returning only with the clarity of light

It kills me inside to see you this way
Feel my heartbeat as I hold your hand
I’m giving you all the hope I have for you
Until the light returns to your eyes
And you can reach stars to dream again
