"In Hope" as written by and Darrell Hyde Nathan Gray....
In hope this little angel will be free from all of their poisons
And in hope I grind my knees into the floor
Praying that he'll never have to feel the pain I have felt
Walking through glass ignorant pain in my feet
His little sweet hands, innocent face so unaware of what lies in waiting
In hope, there will be forever waiting for you
In hope you'll never look back and hate these days I've held your hands
Falling away
Changing each day to his own fate until I am needed no more for his comfort or his joy
In hope there's an answer
And in hope I cry
But I am beaten still the same by this subtle game
As he breaks away I turn my face to the sky for a way to decline
These fairy tales that will mold into nightmares
This fate laid out in my hands unatoned I descend into my
Own decision In hope I can turn this page
Falling away Changing each day to this own fate
When I feel him I go running on his own
Wait for something that more there is not

    General CommentI've always looked at it as a song about being a parent. It's just talking about the natural progress of a child to adulthood.
    It still tears my damn heart out every time I hear it though, both for what I put my parents through and for what my daughter will surely revisit upon me.

    General Commentthis song is about the hardships and fears of rasing a child. its special to me becuase my friend was date raped about a two years ago and is currently rasing the cutiest baby girl in the world. i also have a comment up under unspoken request which deals with the same thing.

    General Commentthe song is about raising a kid. i think it's about not wanting his kid to hate him and not need him like he didn't need his dad.

    General Commenti think the songs is about letting a child go for adoption or maybe just having to give him/her away.

    [ His sweet little hands, innocent face
    So unaware of what lies in waiting ]

    he has to give his son away due to whatever reasons he has to give him up. although "good ol'josh" maybe right in which it is about rasing a child and sheltering them [ In hope this little angel will be free from all of their poisons ], hoping that they will love you and that you will give them fond memories of their childhood [ In hope you'll never look back and hate these days I've held your hand ], and letting go when they leave from home....saying goodbye [ Falling away, changing each day to his own fate
    Until I am needed no more for his comfort or his joy ].

    nonethe less...the song is very beautiful. <3 <3 <3 <3 xoxox

    General CommentWhen I first listened to this song I thought it was about a parent trying to keep his son from being hurt like he has felt before. Then I took a look from another perspective and related it to Jesus Christ. It also makes sense if applied in a spiritual sense. "Praying that he'll never have to feel the pain I have felt"... being crucified perhaps? We are all god's children.
