Track Name: Against Hope (Demo)

"AGAINST HOPE" by David Guilbault

Eyes open.
I was hoping
That we could see the light.

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

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

Battles brewing.
Lives in ruin
No one gets out alive.

Blood is boiling.
Fights are spoiling.
Who won? No one survived.

And I was hoping
That peace would come.
I was hoping.
Against hope.

(Instrumental)

And I was hoping
For the best.
I was hoping,
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 hoping
For an end.
I was hoping,
Against hope.

"THIS HURTS MY HEART" by David Guilbault

This hurts my heart.
All this tearing us apart.
All this hate.
This blindness to its fate.
This ignorance that brings the cold and dark.

The wounds cut deep and bring the blood,
When knives are drawn down in the mud.
All that’s left, what’s fallow and bereft,
Are souls now stripped of faith and sliced of love.

This hurts my heart.
All this tearing us apart.
All this hate.
This blindness to its fate.
This ignorance that brings the cold and dark.

Emboldened are the ones who fear a world
Where ev’ryone can raise a flag unfurled.
Where ev’ry faith, ev’ry gender, ev’ry race
Are knitted all in peace as freedom purled.

This hurts my heart.
All this tearing us apart.
All this hate.
This blindness to its fate.
This ignorance that brings the cold and dark.

What dangers yet to come are yet to know.
And there are evils hiding light still yet to show.
It’s up to us to shine on what is just,
To spark the light of peace and make it glow.

This helps my heart.
All this caring is an art.
All this love.
This rising high above.
This joy that braves the cold and fights the dark.
This helps my heart.

"MY DARLING CHILDREN" by David Guilbault

What do I want to say to you, my darling children?
What do I want to ask of you?

Be kind.
Be smart.
Ask questions of your heart.
Know why the world is waxing cold.

Be true.
Be light.
Stand up for what is right.
Give love wherever you may go.

What do I want to say to you, my darling children?
What do I want you now to do?

Be brave.
Be strong.
Fight back against all wrong.
Know when to open up your mind.

Be free.
Be wise.
Bring it all before your eyes.
Let none of life pass by unknown

I’m gone away.
I’m gone away.
I’m gone away.

What do I want to say to you, my darling children?
What do I want to leave to you?

Find joy.
Feel pain.
Seek the light.
Embrace the rain.
Understand all that living means.

Go now.
Live full.
Watch out for evil’s pull.
Know that your good will see you through.

What do I want to say to you?

"TIME RUN SLOW" by David Guilbault

I miss my friends. They’re passing by too fast.
Then and now. Come and go. Here and gone.
If I could bend all the time we spend too fast.
I’d make it run in a circle too slow.

Make the time you have run slow.
Make it answer to your soul.

When I saw you last you had smiles and smiles to spare.
When I see you now I forget all your joy.
Life turns too fast from pleasure to despair.
Nothing’s meant to last beyond what time destroys.

Make the time you have run slow.
Make it answer to your soul.

The space we fill is ours to have and hold.
No place in time can ever be again.
Face your days, waste no moments, live them bold.
Hold them dear, keep them near, they’re your friends.

Make the time you have run slow.
Make it answer to your soul.
I miss my friends.
They’re passing by too fast.

Track Name: Come Inside
"COME INSIDE" by David Guilbault

Here it comes.
Here we go again.
You’re out there standing in the pouring rain.

Dry your eyes.
Dry your eyes.
Dry your eyes.
Come inside.

We can work this out.
We can find a way.
We can listen to what each other has to say.

Dry your eyes.
Dry your eyes.
Dry your eyes.
Come inside.

Love lives here.
Love has no fear.

Take my hand.
Kiss my lips.
Our world can’t get any better than this.

Look in my eyes.
Look in my eyes.
Look in my eyes.
Come inside.

Love lives here.
Love has no fear.

This is how it was meant to be.
I’m here for you and you’re here for me.

Open your eyes.
Open your eyes.
Open your eyes.
Come inside.

Come inside.
Love lives here.

"UNTIL THE TIME IS GONE" by David Guilbault

Come and walk with me awhile.
It’s been so long since I’ve seen your smile.
Take my hand. Understand
That I am here for you right now.

It’s been a long time, my friend.
And I’m so happy just to see you again.
If you need, a friend indeed,
Look my way, take my hand.

'Cause I’m not going anywhere.
I’m gonna be right here
Until the time is gone,
Until the time is gone for me and you.

Who’s to say wha's gonna be?
But, here today, you can look to me.
I’ll be standing here.
Reach for me, dear.
I can help you hold on, look and see.

I’m not going anywhere.
I’m gonna be right here
Until the time is gone,
Until the time is gone for me and you.

Come and walk with me awhile.
