"Hopeless" as written by and Gordie Edmond Johnson Colin Macdonald....
Celebrating childhood dreaming
Taking in these waterfalls
Before the world got so deceiving
Before you thought you knew it all
The beauty of this scene was hitting
By every year gone by
And now you're thinking love forbidding
When you can't even cry

At least there's hope
Hope, until there's nowhere left to go,
Hope, until there's nowhere left to go, no

Here you are on a break walk singing
Trying to miss as the world walks by
A full moon over red lights singing
To the clouds of a rusty sky
Never less visions, it makes no sense at all
All you are is another victim
Jumping in these waterfalls

And there's no hope
Hope, until there's nowhere left to go
Hope, and now there's no time left to
Even let go
Can't even let go
Can't even let go
Can't even let go
Oh, until there's nowhere left to go

One day breathless you know
Leaves you naked and exposed
Ah, yeah
Ever think that the suns gonna rise
And the worlds gonna spin
And it makes it worse

Hope, until there's nowhere left to go
Hope, until there's no time left to
Even let go
Can't even let go
Can't even let go
Can't even let go

Hope, until there's nowhere left to go
Hope, until there's nowhere left to go
Hope, now there's nowhere left to go

    General Commentnot too many people know about this band, which is a shame and a blessing...they are from niagara falls canada and i am in niagara falls ny...if you ever go to the falls, they are so powerful it makes you think about jumping, even if you are the most happy you've ever been.. and if you are not happy, well, people jump allthe time. the beauty of those falls will talk to you whatever mood you're in.
