Hope & Glory


When I arrive eyes wide fired up
Tried not to slide and let the side down, Now the
Planes on the ground. I'll find a good profession, it's 1957
I've come to the mother land to make a home to put my bed in
This weather does my head in some people are less than kind... I wish
Mamma was here so I could unwind...
But I'm supposed to be the good news, so I lace up these hard black shoes
And look more work, the streets whenever paved with gold they simply make my feet hurt... they just make my feet hurt...

Just a little money in my pocket and a little bit left for those I love



To have enough food on my table and a little bit more for those who call
In this land of hope and glory
You'd think there's enough for us all...
You'd think there's enough for us all

When I arrive eyes wide petrified
Tried not to cry and let the side down, Now the
Planes on the ground. Its 20 years later mammas in the arrival lounge
I take a... few seconds to kiss her...
Then look around at what's happened to my home town
What's going on, but papa doesn't look too strong
Rush home in a cab, windows up, now I hear dad cough
We gotta get in before they switch the lights and water off
For the night, I have to get to know the guard dogs, cause they bite
Progress just pass us by, to the right

Just a little money in my pocket and a little bit left for those I love
To have enough food on my table and a little bit more for those who call
In this land of hope and glory
You'd think there's enough for us all...
You'd think there's enough for us all

Just a little money in my pocket and a little bit left for those I love
To have enough food on my table and a little bit more for those who call
In this land of hope and glory
You'd think there's enough for us all...
You'd think there's enough for us all
