Temptation (2018)

I may not sing or play any instruments, but I have compiled an album of sorts full of songs I wrote centering around the theme of mental health issues. These songs will contain mentions of suicide and self harm along with my experiences having depression and anxiety. For the most part, I'm bored. Enjoy!

10. Hopelessly Hopeful

 

HOPELESSLY HOPEFUL

 

VERSE 1:

I don’t think I’m alive

Caught in the crossfire of some in between place

Some kind of hidden place

Seeing things only broken people see

Nothing’s real to me

I’m on my own and that’s how things have to be

 

PRE-CHORUS:

Praying for a better state of mind to a god I don’t believe in

No amount of love can stop the bleeding

From every inch of my body

Frozen in time

Waiting for Tuesday for weeks at a time

 

CHORUS:

Hopelessly hopeful

I try, but I can’t be happy

It just isn’t me

I wish it was, but it will never be

Time can heal all wounds

Have faith they tell me

So I stay hopelessly hopeful

 

VERSE 2:

If I was still alive

I think I’d still feel things

Sick of these feelings

Sweet relief, bitter to me

 

PRE-CHORUS:

Praying for a better state of mind to a god I don’t believe in

No amount of love can stop the bleeding

From every inch of my body

Frozen in time

Waiting for Tuesday for weeks at a time

 

CHORUS:

Hopelessly hopeful

I try, but I can’t be happy

It just isn’t me

I wish it was, but it will never be

Time can heal all wounds

Have faith they tell me

So I stay hopelessly hopeful

 

BRIDGE:

Hope for better days

Hope for better nights

Hope that things can be alright

Hope for better days

Hope for better nights

Hope that I’ll wake up this time

 

FINAL VERSE:

Acrid smoke is in the air

I’m screaming that this isn’t fair

No one is here to hear me cry

And if I stop to say goodbye

They’ll say I’m giving up

I’ve been through too much

Don’t fall for my deception

I’m hopefully hopeless I can fix this mess

And if I fall, know I was expecting it all along

I know I can’t make it, too hopeless, I hope I’m wrong

And if you feel hopeless, I hope you can still stay strong
