Hopeless in New Hope
HOPELESS IN NEW HOPE

When are you coming back to New Hope?
I hope you'll make it back one of these days
It isn't very far as the crow flies
Fly on back and help an old fool cope

When will you make it home to New Hope?
I hope you'll make a beeline back to town
No, there ain't no circus, but there's this clown
He closed the door but now I think it's ope'.

'Cause he's hopeless in New Hope
He's homeless and he can't cope
And he'll be measured for a rope
Without you...

When might you make your way to New Hope?
I hope you'll make your way so he'll make his
He tears up at the memory of your sweet kiss
And he 'fesses he's a foolish misanthrope

'Cause he's hopeless in New Hope
He's homeless and he can't cope
And he's hapless and sometimes he's a dope
But this I tell you true
He still cares for you
And he'll be measured for a rope
Before the month is through
Without you...
