[Random] Lyrics...!

When I'm writing, I tend to find specific songs which suit specific characters or situations and I listen those while writing. 'Never Lose Hope,' off of the new Uffington Horse album, is one of two on the album ('Fallen Angel' being the other) which have really stuck in my head for while writing and been added to my playlist.

'Never Lose Hope' (for those who are actually reading the novel draft) works for Flora or Tim, while 'Fallen Angel' suits Gillian. :)

Anyway, 'Never Lose Hope' has been stuck in my head all day -- ever since I listened to it on the iPod while walking to and from the voting place. Thus, I share with you!


Never Lose Hope
Music and Lyrics by Heather Alexander
Performed by Uffington Horse (Heather Alexander, Andrew Hare, Dan Ochipinti)


Things grow darker every day
Can't remember what I'm thinking
Pretty soon I'll lose my way
And into dark despair I'm sinking

In my mind I'm cold and tired
Yet my heart insists on beating
I pray once more to be inspired
I hear a little voice repeating

CHORUS:
Never lose hope because your spirit never dies
You're stronger than you think if you open up your eyes
Take a look inside yourself and then 'round where you stand
And maybe, yes, just maybe the answer's waiting in your hand


Friends are calling on my name
To raise their spirits I endeavor
Their pain, like mine, is just the same
I tell them "No, it's not forever!"

CHORUS:
Never lose hope because your spirit never dies
You're stronger than you think if you open up your eyes
Take a look inside yourself and then 'round where you stand
And maybe, yes, just maybe the answer's waiting in your hand


Step by step, it's darker still
Every vein inside is severing
Going on's an act of will
And on that voice I'm betting everything

Become as simple as the wind or as the beasts upon the earth
Learn to control the inner power that was bestowed on you at birth
May have to give yourself a shove or just step back and take a breath
When you have conquered fear of love, you know that you have conquered death

CHORUS:
Never lose hope because your spirit never dies
You're stronger than you think if you open up your eyes
Take a look inside yourself and then 'round where you stand
And maybe, yes, just maybe the answer's waiting in your hand
