Steve Hackett – Hoping Love Will Last lyrics

Ther are many friends that I once knew
Who felt the same special thing that I share with you
They've grown apart in different ways
I wonder if someone hears as I start to say
Hoping love will last
I'm hoping love will last on and on
Why do I dream love's labour's lost
I'm just a face with a name that you soon forgot
But when I'm scared the most, the nightmare ends
Then safe and sound I awake in your arms again -
Hoping love will last
Yes I'm hoping love will last on and on
How can I go on alone when your love is all I've known
Sometimes we stay many miles away
You know you're here every minute throughout the day
Within my thoughts, so take good care
I only wait for the moments we both can share
Hoping love will last
Yes I'm hoping love will last on and on
