Hope Alone Lyrics

Artist: Indigo Girls
Album: Become You

let's not drag this out
everything's in motion
though i've only ever loved you kind
and with devotion
remember when i met you
you were leaving from the start
i thought one day you'd probably just come home
and break my heart

it's funny what you know
and still go on pretending
with no good evidence
you'll ever see that happy ending

you
looking for your distance
and sensing my resistance
you had to do your will

i
had to learn the hard way
we were just an empty dream too big
for hope alone to fill

i know i'm a dreamer
(i know that i'm a)
so i'll give you that
(dreamer)
still i hope i'm more than just a place
(still i hope i'm more)
you laid your hat
(than a place you laid your hat)
you're a land of secrets
(you are its only)
its only citizen
(citizen) and though i paid my dues
(though i paid)
i was never allowed in
(i was never allowed in)
and so i am a stranger
(so i am a stranger)
especially today
(especially today)
cause i get sad and lonely
and you get your way

you
were looking for your distance
and sensing my resistance
you had to do your will

i
i had to learn the hard way
that we were just an empty dream too big
for hope alone to fill

holding on for change i know
we never stood a chance
(no we never stood a chance)
so i could only wait
and watch you slip right through my hands
(watch you slip right through my hands)

you
were always looking for your distance
and sensing my resistance
you had to do your will

i
i had to learn the hard way
we were just an empty dream too big
for hope alone to fill
