about

With any luck you wake up in the morning with a hopeful attitude about the coming day. Not easy. This is for all those folks who just keep on keeping on.

lyrics

HOPE RISING
© Bob Wright

I got my hopes up this morning
I had to shake them a couple of times
I got so used
to singing the blues
its hard to believe that they’re mine
I don’t believe that they told me
how much they like sleeping around
seems like I’d wake up each morning
and hope was nowhere to be found
I know it ain’t easy to be them
the pressure it makes them run scared
but my hopes are all up
and I’m hoping for stuff
that I haven’t hoped for in years


I got my hopes up this morning
I wasn’t too shocked or surprised
when I fall asleep
they appear in my dreams
right there behind both my eyes
I don’t believe they intended
to come out of hiding just yet
but the harder I shook them
the more that it looked like
they’d rise up and shine once again
I know hope won’t last forever
and I guess that it only is fair
but my hopes are all up
and I’m hoping for stuff
that I haven’t hoped for in years

yeah I got my hopes up this morning
it was harder than I ever could say
they could not understand
how they fit in the plans
of someone as hopeless as me
I do not believe they were happy
they knew just how hard it would be
but my hopes are all up
and I’m hoping for stuff
that I haven’t hoped for i

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
