Hopeful
The Beast in its Tracks

Capo 2

C Em Dm G

C
Supposedly it was a wise wise man 
Em
who said itís better to have loved and lost 
Dm                              G
Than never to have loved at all, never to have loved. 
C
How many times does the truth that you take to be true 
Em
Is just truth falling apart at the same speed as you
 Dm
Until it all comes away in a million degrees 
G
And youíre just a few pieces of falliní debris


C                     Am                    Dm
And sheís hopeful. Hopeful. For me.
G7
Iím coming out of the dark clouds


C
She went away and she packed all her loviní
Em
I could not believe it how little there was  
Dm
I stood in the cold kitchen with nothiní to say 
G
Whoíd keep the whole world spinning when she went away yeah?


C
She kept telling me about the good things I deserve 
Em
That I wanted somebody Iíd mistaken for her
Dm
But one look in my eyes and sheíd know she was wrong 
G
So she wouldnít look back at me until she was gone 


C
How many times did you give all your love 
Em
And find out it was so far from far from enough? 
Dm
I followed her out into the street in the rain 
G
And the whole world stopped spinning and just went up in flames 


            C         Am                   G7
And sheís hopeful. Hopeful. For me. 
G
Iím coming out of the dark clouds
        C       Am             G7       
Sheís hopeful. Hopeful, for me.
G
She says it to me often



C       Em      Dm      G       G7



C
The sunlight corroded and the days started to fail 
Em
The rocks in the road sharpened shadows to nails 
Dm
The fencepost were empty and so were the trees 
G
Had the bluebird of use on itsí last tune for me 


C
Iíve seen her around now with someone new I donít know 
Em
She likes greed-eyed boys who are haloed in hope 
Dm
But I know the look in his eyes and I know all the old signs 
G
Just a couple more curves before his own road unwinds 


C
These days Iím feeliní better about the man that I am
Em
Thereís some things I can change and thereís others I canít 
Dm
I met someone new now I know I deserve 
G
I never met someone who loves the world more than her 


C
She has been through her own share of hard times as well
Em
And she has learned how to tear out the heaven from hell 
Dm
Most nights Iím alright still all rocks roll down hill
G
But she says Iíll get better, she knows that I will 


            C         Am                G7
And sheís hopeful. Hopeful, for me
G
Iím coming out of the dark clouds
        C       Am              G7      
Sheís hopeful. Hopeful, for me
G
Cominí out of the dark clouds, Comin out of the dark clouds 



C  Am  Dm  G  G7



C
The word is as the world is
Em                                Dm        G    G7
Everybodyís gonna hurt like hells some times 
C
The word is as the world is
Em                                Dm              G     
Everybodyís gonna hurt like hells some times some times
