The voice on the tape tells us to listen.
We cannot live on hope alone.
Promises solace through repetition.
We cannot live on hope alone.


Not everybody gets a happy ending.
Not everybody leaves with a smile.


Have I not become who I thought I would?
We cannot live on hope alone.
This world is teeming with I wish I coulds
We cannot live on hope alone.


Not everybody gets a happy ending.
Not everybody leaves with a smile.
We cannot live on hope alone.
Not everybody gets a happy ending
And not everybody gets to leave with a smile.
Not everybody gets the girl at the end of the movie.
Not everybody takes rejection with that certain style.
Not everybody knows how to learn the hard way
And not everybody wants to see what lies at the end of an extra mile.


Not everybody gets the Riviera when the gutters so much nearer.
Not everybody gets the belt but we're all entered in the fight...
