Track Name: Against Hope (Demo)

"AGAINST HOPE" by David Guilbault

Eyes open.
I was hopin'
That we could see the light.

Hearts are broken.
Hurt is spoken.
Our arrows take their flight.

And I was hopin'
They'd miss their mark.
I was hopin',
Against hope.

Battles brewin'.
Lives in ruin
No one gets out alive.

Blood is boilin'.
Fights are spoilin'.
Who won? No one survived.

And I was hopin'
That peace would come.
I was hopin'.
Against hope.

(Instrumental)

And I was hopin'
For the best.
I was hopin',
Against hope.

The war is over.
No longer lovers.
We put the others to the test.

Still it lingers.
Fingers on triggers.
When will we put this thing to rest?

And I was hopin'
For an end.
I was hopin',
Against hope.

"LONESOME" by David Guilbault

Lonesome. It’s such a lonely word.
Lonesome. A sad and lonely word.

And it’s only in my heart
Where it is heard.

Lonesome. The hurt is held inside.
Lonesome. You can not hear me cry.

‘Cause it’s only in my heart
Where I can sigh.
Yes, it’s only in my heart
Where I can sigh.

Lonesome ... Lonesome ...

And it’s only in my heart
Where it takes life.
Yes, it’s only in my heart
Where it shouts out loud,
Where it wears no shroud,
Where it makes its place onto a shrine.

Lonesome. Out here in the world.
Lonesome. Let no one know you hurt.

It’s only in my heart
Where lonely hides.
Yes, it’s only in my heart
Where lonely hides.
Where lonely hides.
It’s only in my heart.

"SINGING OUR BLUES" by David Guilbault

I don’t live in a make-believe world.
I don’t believe that I should.
I don’t wish on a make-believe star.
I only wish that I could.

My life is real. It really is hard.
This is hardly breaking news.
All that I know is that life is a show,
We’re all just singing our blues.
We’re all just singing our blues.

You can live in a make-believe world.
But believing won’t make it so.
You can wish on a make-believe star.
But wishing won’t stay the woe.

Your life is real. It really is hard.
This is hardly breaking news.
All you can do is give it a go.
We’re all just singing our blues.
We’re all just singing our blues.

If I thought I could change the world
Just by seeing it so,
I would embrace all the hurt that it holds
And then let all of it go.

But I know that ain’t the way of the world.
The way of the world is to use.
Believe it or not, there’s one thing for sure.
We’re all just singing our blues.
We’re all just singing our blues.

"DARK BLACKTOP ROAD" by David Guilbault

Heater is cold.
Engine is hot.
Pedal to the metal
Won’t give what I got.

Smoke out my pipe.
Steam out my hood.
Needles all pinnin’.
Ain’t looking real good.

Gotta get where I’m goin’
Before my whole head explodes.
Headin’ to the bottom
Down a dark blacktop road.
Down a dark blacktop road.

Fluids are low.
Fever is high.
Meter is runnin’.
Fixin’ to die.

Nothin’ more left.
No more to lose.
Half tank of gas.
The dank of my blues.

Gotta get where I’m goin’.
Go where I know.
Drivin’ to the bottom
Down a dark blacktop road.
Down a dark blacktop road.

"THE NIGHT WORE ON" by David Guilbault

She wore a satin dress.
It made her look her best.

When he came around,
He wore the smile of his sound.

And the night wore on.

He wore a cowboy hat.
It made him feel all that.

When she came to hear,
She wore the smile of her cheer.

And the night wore on.
And the night, sweet night, wore on.

And the nights wore on.
And they smiled, smiled with song.
And their love, love grew strong.
And their nights, sweet nights, wore on.

They wore each other’s ring.
They swore to laugh and sing.

Together they would stay
And make the music play.

And their nights, sweet night wore on.
And their songs, sweet songs, played on.
And their love, sweet love, stayed strong.
