"Hopeless" as written by and Van Hunt....
Johnny's dead and I can't breathe
I take 'em so I can fall asleep
I suffer the luxury of hope
I'm walkin' the wire to reach the rope

I'm getting it all down to her pink nails to her details
I'm getting it all down to the bone

You live on a street without a name
You cut off your hair but you're still the same
You kinda regret what you did but hey
You can't get stuck in yesterday

You're getting forgetful in you old age
And blind rage
You're getting forgetful but that's good

Because hope is hope and I'm not you
Thank god we've all got somewhere else to go
So homesick for the place that's not really your home
And you're lonely for a life you'll never know

A decade of waiting by the stairs
And watching the stars and they fell in pairs
Took it for granted that I would stay
I thought of an awful thing to say

I'm getting over just to spite you
Just to write you this song
I hope you can hear me

Because hope is hope and I'm not you
Thank god we've all got somewhere else to go
So homesick for the place that's not really your home
And you're lonely for a life you'll never know
There's a life you'll never know

I'm getting better, wrote a letter
And the name on someone's back
I hope you can read it

Under the flashing lights you thought
Of all of the things that you are not
Meanwhile on the other side
I turn on my radio and cry

But hope is hope and I'm not you
Thank god we've all got somewhere else to go
So homesick for the place that's not really your home
And you're lonely for a life you'll never know
There's a life you'll never know

You're getting forgetful
You're getting forgetful but that's good
