lyrics

Here is What I Hope

I want life
bigger than buildings
I don’t want a memory

I want love
that I can believe in
I don’t want a memory

Where do I start?
Where do I end?
Where do I begin?

Woke up alone
turned on the light again
but where do I begin?
how do I begin to say

I want life
bigger than buildings
I don’t want a memory

I want love
that I can believe in
I don’t want a memory

The door is locked
but people keep pulling
broken glass spider-webs
out from the corner like cancers
we hold each other a little tighter like dancers

And want life
bigger than buildings
we don’t want a memory

We want love
that we can believe in
we don’t want a memory
