Name of Song: Luck and going on hoping


It seems the way of people,
Hope and faith and love,
It satisfies the expectancies
When looking way above.

If bridges were built on luck,
And cars were built with hope,
There would be many dead,
With lives on slippery slopes.

I don’t mean to be rude,
But let’s get real and straight,
You wouldn’t run a business on
some luck with hope and wait.

Chorus
Is death so overwhelming,
That faith is all you know,
And hope that someone up there cares,
And so you let it go.
I tend to feel some fear from
A thought of “it just ends”,
Spirits know it’s just not true,
And somehow we transcend.

Luck and going on hoping,
A familiar way we know,
Our way to face when all is black,
And return to the status quo.

Luck and going on hoping,
Been around for years,
The package comes with morbid thoughts,
And sometimes grief and tears.

Chorus
Is death so overwhelming,
That faith is all you know,
And hope that someone up there cares,
And so you let it go.
I tend to feel some fear from
A thought of “it just ends”,
Spirits know it’s just not true,
And somehow we transcend.

And so you let it go.

And somehow we transcend.

And so we meet our maker,
Is he so hard to know,
I tend to think he expects much more,
And greater spiritual growth.

So start by looking in,
And leave your body alone,
It’s you who has the answers to
Returning to your throne.

Chorus
Is death so overwhelming,
That faith is all you know,
And hope that someone up there cares,
And so you let it go.
I tend to feel some fear from
A thought of “it just ends”,
Spirits know it’s just not true,
And somehow we transcend.

For what you say and do,
Sharing what you see yourself
to make a clearer view.

You can take some ownership
You can be your own friend,
Using self to thrust your life
Towards a better end.
