"Hope" as written by and C Morton Thomas Decarlo Callaway....
How can you say "you torture me" when you're already thinking about someone else
When he comes home you'll be in his arms and I'll be gone
But I know my day will come, I know someday I'll be the only one
So now you wait for a spark you now it will turn you on
He's gonna make you feel the way you want to feel
When he starts to lie when he makes you cry you'll now I'll be there
My day will come, I know someday I'll be the only one

Call me selfish, call it what you like I think it's right
To want someone for all your own and not to share their love
But I'll have the way
You won't stand a chance anyway
'Cause I got to you, you don't stand a chance

So now you wait for his cock, you know it will turn you on
He's gonna make you feel the way you want to feel
When he starts to lie, when he makes you cry you'll now I'll be there
My day will come, I know someday I'll be the only one
My day will come, I know someday I'll be the only one

You say you want perfection, that's your self-destruction
You don't know what you want, it's gonna take you a year to find out
I am not givin' up
And when you've had enough, you take your bruised little head
And you'll come running back to me
I know that I will be the only one

    General Commentthis song is amazing... the descendents version is great too, but sublime just makes every song fifty times better in my eyes.

    General CommentCovers usually aren't better, this song proving my point. Sublime didn't really change this song to be in their own dub/ska style, they just tried to musically emulate the Descendents. And look which band is around today.

    General CommentI'd have to say that this version is better than the Descendants version, just because the Descendants aren't around anymore. And neither band is around today, pence_is_god, but their memories live on in ALL and the Long Beach Dub Allstars
