"Hopes Go Astray" as written by Bryan Anthony Potvin, Merl Dean Bryck, Don Gerard Schmid and John Peter Semko....
Just write a letter and mail it to yourself
Read it out loud but to no one else
Pick your pocket a measure of time
And never leave these memories behind

You'll sing 'til tomorrow
And the days that will follow
But it's never the same
When you feel you're insane
On the bed where you lay
There's a plan that was made
But it's never the same
When your hopes go astray

Just write a memo, and hang it on your wall
A small reminder, of why you're here at all
So look around, and groove to the sound
Let's see those feet rise up from the ground

You'll sing 'til tomorrow
And the days that will follow
But it's never the same
When you feel you're insane
On the bed where you lay
There's a plan that was made
But it's never the same
When your hopes go astray

Now the princess washes dishes
She's done more harm than any good
I am a witness of hugs and kisses
Loneliness is never understood

So paint a picture of things that aren't real
Remember shame when it's time to kneel
And don't forget the things that you say
Could all come back to you some other day

You'll sing 'til tomorrow
And the days that will follow
But it's never the same
When you feel you're insane
On the bed where you lay
There's a plan that was made
But it's never the same
When your hopes go astray
Hopes go astray.

    My InterpretationI really relate to this song...it speaks to going through life as a walking wounded, struggling toward an emotional stability that's always just out of reach.

    Sometimes things are better, sometimes worse, but never really feel right...but you muddle through anyway. Except when you don't.

    It's never the same when your hopes go astray.
