How am I supposed to write about hope
With catchy hooks and melodies and make you sing along
Well I titled this whole album before I tried to write a song
And the truth is hope can be a burning sun
The closer that you seem to get
The quicker you get lost in the sight of
But It keeps casting it's shadow
Of our burdens behind us
And the more we try stand inside the light
The more a darkness seems to grow
Is darkness the shade where I've found peace?

So maybe this time I need to be
Standing for someone to believe
Like a weathered oak with know hope carved in me
So maybe this time I need to be
Standing for someone to believe
You can take the life from me
You can take the life from me
But I'll always be here standing, still

Every time you need me
Hope is at the root but each day
It's still casting a shadow of my darkness behind me
And the more I try to show you with the light
The more a darkness seems to follow
You will never change what you refuse to face
You will never change what you refuse to face
Like a shadow we always grow
Every time we try to find the light

So maybe this time I need to be
Standing for someone to believe
Like a weathered oak with know hope carved in me
So maybe this time I need to be
Standing for someone to believe
You can take the life from me
You can take the life from me
Maybe this time I need to be
Maybe this time I need to be me
You don't know who you are anymore
Tonight I don't know either but we are standing still
But we are standing still

We can't be moved
When hope is at the root
The root of you
Every time the wind grows still
And I continue to lose movement
You are there to walk up chin down and carve your name
Every time the wind grows still
And life pushes you further
Come carve your name
Know hope in me
