"Hope for the Hopeless" as written by and Alison Loren/burton Sudol....
Stitch in your knitted brow
And you don't know how
You're gonna get it out
Crushed under heavy chest
Trying to catch your breath
But it always beats you by a step, all right now

Making the best of it
Playing the hand you get
Well, you're not alone in this

There's hope for the hopeless
There's hope for the hopeless
There's hope

Cold in the summer breeze
Yeah, you're shivering
On your bended knee
Still, when you're heart is sore
And the heavens pour
Like a willow bending with the storm, you'll make it

Running against the wind
Playing the cards you get
Something is bound to give

There's hope for the hopeless
There's hope for the hopeless
There's hope
There's hope
There's hope

There's hope

    General CommentShe is so positive! How refreshing, these days. This song says - "yes, you are suffering - we all do and will. Even so, you pick up and keep moving and you get through it in the end." Well said!

    General CommentI think this is her most uplifting song. Though I like to listen to Rangers more than this song for the musical component itself, the lyrics to this one are indescribably uplifting. This song stopped me from suicide, and ever since has been what I turn to in tough times. I was dealt a crappy hand (diagnosed with type one diabetes at seven years old, diagnosed with bipolar a few months later, diagnosed with aspergers at fourteen. eight surgeries to date with the first at five years old and the latest at fifteen) When I discovered this song, I started to feel peace for the first time that I can remember. I was just coming down from mania at the time, and that is the toughest (in my opinion) part of bipolar. It literally stopped the depression half of the spectrum from getting really bad, and I've been stable ever since. I truly believe that God was sending me a message through my pandora station.
