Hope In The Air Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

There is a man that I know
For seventeen years he never spoke
Guess he had nothing to say
He opened his mouth on Judgment Day

I listened with all of my might
But was scared by the look in his eyes
Like he'd already lost the fight
And there was no hope ever in sight

No hope in the air
No hope in the water
Not even for me
Your last serving daughter

Why fear death? Be scared of living
Our hearts are small and ever thinning
There is no hope ever of winning
Oh, why fear death? Be scared of living

I have seen men provoked
And I have seen lives revoked
And I looked at my life and I choked
And from there, no more ever I have spoke

I can't give up that quick
My life is a candle and a wick
You can't put it out but you can't break it down
In the end, we are waiting to be lit

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But sadly not me
Your last serving daughter

A friend is a friend forever
And a good one will never leave, never
But you've never been south and what rolls off your mouth
You will never understand, ever

You speak minds handed down to you
By the lies handed down by your truth
Your angels that dance at your wail
Will mask your scrambling youth

I forgave you your shortcomings
And ignored your childish behavior
Laid a kiss on your head and before I left said
Stay away from fleeting favor

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But sadly not me
Your last serving daughter

Pick up your rope, Lord, sling it to me
If we are to battle, I must not be weak
And give us your strength, world and your food and your water
Oh, I am your savior, your last serving daughter

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But sadly not me
Your last serving daughter

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But no hope for me
Your last serving daughter
