hope for now lyrics – city and colour

“hope for now”

this highway’s dark and empty.
just miles and miles of endless road.
i’ve got a sickness pounding in my head.
i’m at the mercy of the ghost.

what will it take to live as if i would not another day?
to live without despair, and to be without disdain.
how can i instill such hope, but be left with none of my own?
what if i could sing just one song and it might save somebody’s life?

i sought after, after reasons to stay.
i was lost, i was lost.
then the sky turned black,
and the rains poured down.
i was waiting, waiting to be found. oh, no.

how can i instill such hope, but be left with none of my own?
what if i could sing just one song and it might save somebody’s life?

then i would sing all that i could sing
cause that is when, when i feel that i’m not just counting time.
oh when i sing all that i can sing
maybe just for a moment things would seem all right.
oh when i sing, oh when i sing
oh when i sing, oh when i sing
