Wind full of smells
And far-away places
The last thing I said
Are you sure you can do this

Hands fold together
He says no
Don't turn your head
No don't
Just go

I'm here in your yard
And it's getting colder
You're making it hard
He smiled when he told me

Life on the wing
Like a lot of things
Would be better if we didn't try
I tried
Like I was walking out in your garden
Or am I just being foolish
Or am I just being hopefully yours

You know you've been seen
Not quite on the main street
And I was the queen
Till then I had nothing

And I can't go on like
This is not a way of
Telling you be mine
Be mine

Like I was walking on your blue carpet
Or am I just being foolish
Or am I just being hopefully yours

Or am I just being foolish
Or am I just being hopefully yours

Or just being foolish
Or just being hopefully yours

    General CommentThis song seems to track the vivid sensations and feelings usually associated with a person in love. "Hopefully Yours" is almost a stream of consciousness with a sense of both immense hope & doubt, stringing all the sensations together. There's so much woven into this relationship that the prospect of it failing seems humiliating but little flutters of tenderness make her feel too alive, too passionate to hold herself back any longer. It's a song that lingers around the possibilities but is delicate and breathy enough to at least acknowledge that she is completely enamored and taken by this person, undoubtedly in love and just waiting for the go ahead.
