Hope 03:40
hope, it ain’t the same hope, it ain’t the same hope, it ain’t the same hope, it ain’t the same without you (x2) (hope) it ain’t the same since you’ve been gone Living for today - carrying on (never give up, never give in) What am I hoping for? (never give up, never give in) (hope) another change, another choice learning to embrace all of the noise (never give up, never give in) what am I hoping for? (never give up, never give in) as we, as we float hope’s kaleidoscope as we, as we float hope’s kaleidoscope ... (as we float) Vibin from the inside, tryna make it outside (as we float) a whole nother vibe, whole nother ride, yeah

about

Hope is a feeling, not a solution. Hope is a climb, not a summit. Hope is an invitation to observe possibility, a spark of your own curiosity. It won’t take you where you need to go, but it may put wind in your sails.

A soul melody set against retro jingles. Fundraiser sample packs. A bag of new and old percussion instruments. Like the times in which it took form, “Hope” began as a loose assemblage of ideas and actions - lovingly spun into being with care, collaboration, and patience. At its heart is a simple rhyme, gaining momentum, inviting its message to take hold. The feeling was in the room when we made the song, and we didn’t dare name it any further for fear it may vanish. It was this ambiguity that gave us the nerve to finish a song called “HOPE,” and there it remains, light enough to float.

Originally made as an offering for [FRIENSGIVING MIXTAPE] - an LA community potluck and mutual aid food initiative started by Frienzone (www.instagram.com/frienzone_la/)
