Lyrics:

All I'm Hopin' For

The wind howls out some lovesick melody
that knocks me from my step
and mocks my liberty
my mind brings back some long forgotten smile
and the gentle graceful curls
that hung above her eyes
and I'm a wonderin'
where she lays her head
and of princes and of lovers and of fools
for what was I to do
but turn around and leave
before the achin' in my heart
drove me to my knees
you know it's true
all I was really hopin' for
was you

A winter''s moon lights my journey home
through frosted sleeping fields
and passageways of stone
my heart flickr's a little light to reminisce
about distant simpler times
and the riches in a kiss
and I'm a thinkin'
does she still possess
those sparkling eyes that made me want to climb
out to reach the stars
sprinkled on the sky
with a head full of ideas
but a heart with severed ties
you know it's true
all I was really hopin' for
was you

So I'll just keep on keepin' on
and if I have to have these thoughts
I'll just toss them in a song
and if you hear me howling at the moon
you'll know it's just a dream
of a setting for two
and I'm a thinkin'
will I ever get
another kiss that could make me love again
so take my fancy clothes
and knock me from my road
all I really need to have
is just a woman and a friend
you know it's true
all I was really hopin' for
was you
