  • There is a girl who hopes
    Longing for hope to give her feathers
    To lift her lightly from rumors within herself
    She hovers above her caves
    praying not to fall back again

    She hopes genuinely... and for things genuine
    even though she cannot single out clearly what she hearts
    She hopes to find comfort with her reflection
    while others are still struggling to make a reflection
    She hopes to be special... to be appreciated... to be embraced dearly...
    but she's afraid no guy can provide that home

    I think she hopes for an answer,
    She is waiting for something to happen
    cause she is afraid to move on her own
    she wants someone she trusts to hold her hand through the end
    If not for that clarity, she will stand her ground,
    patiently hoping she be noticed

    She won't say it, she can't say some things about her
    but she hopes she can,
    and I hope she takes her time
    She is delicate when she's by herself,
    hoping it be not a flaw,
    while I just can't adore anything more
    She is fragile when she becomes her own judge
    hoping the verdict gives her wings to soar
    and i'll be there in case she needs the lift
