dreaming of the day when we are all more optimistic than jaded

“But darling, I wish you well

On your way to the wishing well

Swinging off of those gates of hell

But I can tell how hard you’re trying

Just have that secret hope

Sometimes all we do is cope

Somewhere on the steepest slope

There’ll be an endless rope and nobody crying.

~Patty Griffin, Nobody Crying

“Well I wish that you could see me when I’m flying in my dreams

The way I laugh there way up high

The way I look when I fly

The way I live…

The way I fly…”

~Patty Griffin, Chief

“And you can’t run away from the nagging dark. You carry it everywhere in your heart. It finishes everything that you start. You can’t run away from the nagging dark.

How far can you see? Will you ever be free? Through the blackest night, aw you still hold on tight. Hope is your finest work. It’s your finest work. Hope is your finest work of all.”

~John Hiatt, The Nagging Dark
