Window of hope – Oleta Adams


IN THE DARKNESS OF YOUR PRIVATE ROOM
YOU’VE BEEN PICKING AT THE SCABS OF SOME OLD WOUNDS
YOU’RE CUDDLING UP THE SORROW LIKE IT’S YOUR BEST FRIEND
S1, S2 HOOG-OCTAAF: THINKING IT’S AN INESCAPABLE END
SEE THE LIGHT SHINING ON THE WALL
IT’S GONNA SHINE THROUGH THE NIGHTFALL
MS1, MS2, S1, S2: CAN’T YOU SEE

A WINDOW OF HOPE (HOPE)
A, MS1, S1: SHINING THE LIGHT ON EVERY PROBLEM
A WINDOW OF HOPE (OWHOW)
A, MS1, S1: THERE’S ALWAYS A CHANCE THAT YOU CAN SOLVE THEM
WHEN YOU THINK IT’S ALL OVER AND YOU WANNA LET GO
THE FAINTEST GLOW IS THERE TO HELP YOU, I KNOW
KEEP LOOKING FOR THE LIGHT OF
THE WINDOW OF HOPE … HOPE

MS2, S1, S2 (HOOG-OCTAAF): YOU’RE SHADOW BOXING ALMOST EVERYDAY
DON’T YOU THINK IT’S TIME TO PUT YOUR GLOVES AWAY
(CA, A, S1, S2: OEHOEHOE) MS1, MS2: THIS KIND OF PUNISHMENT SHOULD BE A SIN
FACE IT, THAT AIN’T NO WAY TO BEGIN
OH, SEE THE LIGHT SHINING ON THE WALL
IT’S GONNA SHINE THROUGH THE NIGHTFALL
MS1, MS2, S1, S2: CAN’T YOU SEE

A WINDOW OF HOPE (HOPE)

CA, MS1, MS2: HOPE IS THE SEA OF LIFE (A, S1, S2: OEH SEA OF LIFE)
THAT WAS MEANT TO FLOW (A, S1, S2: MEANT TO FLOW)
AS A NEVER ENDING STREAM (A, S1, S2: OEHW HEHEEY)
