Songtekst

In the darkness of your private room
You”ve been pickin' at the scab's of some old wounds
Cudding up the sorrow like it's your best friend
Thinkin' it's an inescapable end
But see the light shining on the wall
It”s gonna shine through the nightfall
Can't you see…….

A window of hope
Shining the light on every problem
A window of hope
There's always a chance that you can solve them
When you think it's all over and you wanna let go
The faintest glow is there to help you, I know
Keep looking for the light of
The window of hope

You're shadow boxing almost everyday
Don't you think it's time to ut your gloves away
This kind of punishment should be a sin
Face it, that ain't no way to begin
But see the light shining on the wall
It's gonna shine through the nightfall
Can you see ……..

A window of hope
Shinning the light on every problem
A window of hope
There's always a chance that you can solve them
When you think it's all over and you wanna let go
The faintest glow is there to help you, I know
Keep looking for the light of
The window of hope

Hope is the sea of life
That was meant to flow
As a never ending stream
And I can sleep at night
Now that I know
Hope is a waking dream
Can't you see

A window of hope
Shinning the light on every problem
A window of hope
There's always a chance that you can solve them
When you think it's all over and you wanna let go
The faintest glow is there to help you, I know
Keep looking for the light of
The window of hope
