Poetry Friday: Wild Hope by Mandy Moore

Current Mood: hopeful
Current Song: Wild Hope by Mandy Moore

In the crazy world
Anything can happen
If you will it to
I'm just a hazy girl
Blurring all the edges
Only seeing blue

It's a wild hope
A wild hope
A wild hope
Everything will be alright

Lost inside
A painting of a city on a hotel wall
Days goes by
Wasting golden hours in the fall

It's a wild hope
A wild hope
A wild hope
Everything will be alright

I catch a glimpse of our reflection
Beside you I see myself
We are the season's new collection
We look like everybody else

Walk alone
Through the crowded streets into the fading Grey
Here and gone
Like a decoration for the holiday

It's a wild hope
A wild hope
A wild hope
Everything will be alright

- lyrics to Wild Hope by Mandy Moore

Hope means so much to me. I encourage you all to really listen to the first verse and the chorus of this song.

I have this album and absolutely love it! My favorite song though is Gardenia.

I love this album but I don't own it yet. I KNOW. It's a shame. I KNOW.

Thank you for that hopeful post. I'm hopeful by nature, but I can always use a little encouragement.

I've never heard this song. I'm going to look it up and listen to it.
