Hope (feat. Joy Oladokun)

Dominic Balli


I know I need you now and I hate it
I'm scared that If I lose you I won't make it
But ain't nobody do me like you do
The way you break my heart in two
So tell me hope... why am I still holding onto you?

You have really been the only way to
Live through the civil wars, and
Nine elevens and holocausts then
Dream of a better dawn
I remember when you taught me how to fly
I used to treasure you like gold
When ignorance was bliss back then
But so much has changed with time
I've watched some people die since then
Now I've lost most fights that I've fought and
I feel more broken than whole and
I've cried more than often than not
And I know that it's you in it all
So it makes me scared to trust you
When you're so often full of it
Pretend that I don't let it bother me
But I do, and it does

I know I need you now and I hate it
I'm scared that If I lose you I won't make it
But ain't nobody do me like you do
The way you break my heart in two
So tell me hope... why am I still holding onto you?

Your light used to keep me up at night
Dreaming of all I could be
Anything could happen, these days
An unaffordable luxury
I love you, I ain't gonna lie
You've been like water to my tree
Now you're slowly drowning me
And it's hard for me to see why
We're still standing here

Maybe our time's come and gone on
Me and you had a long time, a nice run
But everything good always has an end come
And maybe it's time you and I move on
But you're the one carrying me to the next line
Have I've let you let me down for the last time
I need you more than I've ever had to
But I don't want to

But I can't lose you
Don't let me lose you
