Boo Hewerdine – Hope Is A Name lyrics

Hope is a name that you give to a girl
Something she'll carry with her in this world
All of the things that you never had
All of the loves that you never loved

Hope is a name that we give to a girl
She'll wear it for dancing she'll sway and she'll swirl
She'll turn when she hears it in whispers and sighs
She'll smile as it crosses her first lover's lips

Oh still it goes on
Oh still it goes on
It's always been the same
You're no one until they give you a name

Hope is a name I would pass down to you
Part of the blueprint in all that you do
All of the things that I never did
All of the loves that I never loved
