Hopeful
The Beast in its Tracks

Capo 2

F Dm Gm C

F
Supposedly it was a wise wise man 
Dm
who said it’s better to have loved and lost 
Gm                              C
Than never to have loved at all, never to have loved. 
F
How many times does the truth that you take to be true 
Dm
Is just truth falling apart at the same speed as you
 Gm
Until it all comes away in a million degrees 
C
And you’re just a few pieces of fallin’ debris


F                     Dm                    Gm
And she’s hopeful. Hopeful. For me.
C7
I’m coming out of the dark clouds


F
She went away and she packed all her lovin’
Dm
I could not believe it how little there was  
Gm
I stood in the cold kitchen with nothin’ to say 
C
Who’d keep the whole world spinning when she went away yeah?


F
She kept telling me about the good things I deserve 
Dm
That I wanted somebody I’d mistaken for her
Gm
But one look in my eyes and she’d know she was wrong 
C
So she wouldn’t look back at me until she was gone 


F
How many times did you give all your love 
Dm
And find out it was so far from far from enough? 
Gm
I followed her out into the street in the rain 
C
And the whole world stopped spinning and just went up in flames 


            F         Dm                   C7
And she’s hopeful. Hopeful. For me. 
C
I’m coming out of the dark clouds
        F       Dm             C7       
She’s hopeful. Hopeful, for me.
C
She says it to me often



F       Dm      Gm      C       C7



F
The sunlight corroded and the days started to fail 
Dm
The rocks in the road sharpened shadows to nails 
Gm
The fencepost were empty and so were the trees 
C
Had the bluebird of use on its’ last tune for me 


F
I’ve seen her around now with someone new I don’t know 
Dm
She likes greed-eyed boys who are haloed in hope 
Gm
But I know the look in his eyes and I know all the old signs 
C
Just a couple more curves before his own road unwinds 


F
These days I’m feelin’ better about the man that I am
Dm
There’s some things I can change and there’s others I can’t 
Gm
I met someone new now I know I deserve 
C
I never met someone who loves the world more than her 


F
She has been through her own share of hard times as well
Dm
And she has learned how to tear out the heaven from hell 
Gm
Most nights I’m alright still all rocks roll down hill
C
But she says I’ll get better, she knows that I will 


            F         Dm                C7
And she’s hopeful. Hopeful, for me
C
I’m coming out of the dark clouds
        F       Dm              C7      
She’s hopeful. Hopeful, for me
C
Comin’ out of the dark clouds, Comin out of the dark clouds 



F  Dm  Gm  C  C7



F
The word is as the world is
Dm                                Gm        C    C7
Everybody’s gonna hurt like hells some times 
F
The word is as the world is
Dm                                Gm              C     
Everybody’s gonna hurt like hells some times some times 



F Dm Gm C C7 F
