10. Hope

Black & White
by Royal Tailor



 

When you’re knocked down to the bottom
And you feel like you’re still falling
And you’re wondering when the brighter day’s coming
You’ve been lost
They keep playing that old sad song on the radio
And you feel like they’re telling your story
You’re like a ship that’s floating in the dark
And the fog’s so thick you can hardly see the stars anymore
And you’re looking for a way
You’re looking for a way home

Hope
He’ll light the way
You’ll find your way to
Hope, hope
Everybody’s looking for, they’re searching for
A place to put their
Hope, hope

This life is a struggle
And you’re so far ‘cause you’ve been running
And you put trust in all of the wrong things
High class, you’ve got everything
It won’t last, you’ll be empty ‘cause
True love’s not marked with a price tag
No, you can’t buy that
You’re like a ship that’s floating in the dark
And the fog so thick you can hardly see the stars anymore
And you’re looking for a way
You’re looking for a way home

I can see it in your eyes
You’ve been looking for a better life
But you don’t where to find it
Well get ready, I can see the rising sun
And your change is ‘bout to come
Yeah, your change is coming

Behind the Song:
I love this song. People put their confidence in the wrong things. Scripture tells us not to set our affection on earthly things. It seems like we look for lasting satisfaction in temporary things. The measuring stick for happiness and success has become the quantity of tangible things we acquire as opposed to the quality of the intangible things around me-- the relationships that I have with people and my relationship with God. --Tauren
