Black Birdie – hope Lyrics

Tale as old as time
The story’s told been in many rhymes
When our hearts have been destroyed
We feel numb, and dull, and void
We were told this since we crossed paths
Taught that this life will never last
Now it seems that day has come
But instead of both souls, it takes one

I will never forget those never words you said to me
“Today is the day that you must leave me be
Don’t cry, don’t be sad, don’t stop your joy not now nor never
In my soul, we’ll be together forever”
Since then, my life has changed
The works of my mind were rearranged

I’ve broken free from the chains of travesty
No longer conformed in this uniformity
I’ve found my one true home
And for once I had hope for tomorrow

I’ve grown with grief and pain
I’ve learned nothing will ever be the same
Through trials and tribulations
I’ve learned happiness isn’t a constant sensation

I’ve loved and lost and loved and lost over and over again
Gained a plethora of companions but also lost too many friends
They love, then they leave, but most importantly they lie
About always being by my side

I’ve broken free from the chains of tragedy
Learned I’m all I could ever need for me
In search of a new home
Starting to feel less hopeful

Through pain and strife in this game of life
Through death and apathy, I learned
I don’t have to pretend to be fine
‘Cause I’m here to comfort me and earn
Love through me and not someone else
And forget all the things that I tell myself
I may never be well and that’s okay

I’ve broken free from the chains of travesty
No longer conformed in this uniformity
I’ve found my one true home
And for once I have hope
For once I have hope
Yes, for I have hope for a tomorrow
