"Hopeless" as written by and Hunt....
Hello mornin'
When does the fun begin?
Goodbye mornin'
Sorry it has to end

But I've cried just a little too long
Now it's time for me to be strong

Hello mornin'
I sure missed you last night
Goodbye mornin'
You just won't do me right

But I've stayed just a little too long
Now it's time for me to move on

They say I'm hopeless
Penny with a hole in it
They say I'm no less
Than up to my head in it
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba

Hello yesterday
I sure need you now
Goodbye yesterday
I just can't stay around
But I've stayed just a little too long
Now it's time for me to move on

Hello yesterday
Remember how it used to be
Goodbye yesterday
I can't take you with me

But I've stayed just a little too long
Now it's time for me to move on

They say I'm hopeless
Penny with a hole in it
They say I'm no less
Than up to my head in it
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba

    General CommentThis song is pretty much the theme of the 1997 romantic drama, 'Love Jones' I was first introduced to it after watching that movie, when it opens and the song is playing as the viewer is looking at Nina's portfolio. God. I fell in love with it immediately.

    I believe the film's first act does a very good job of explaining the meaning behind the song- a woman is heartbroken/leaving a broken relationship/venturing out into the new and unknown and she feels as if the future is bleak. She yearns for those simple moments, those good mornings- those yesterdays...but they're gone.
    But she refuses to stay in this rut- and moves on. They say she's hopeless- but she's gonna emerge on top.
    Or at least that's what I think.

    General CommentI know Ms. Farris isn't around anymore, at least that I've heard about... but this is a truly great song and i can relate to being hopeless. :)
