lyrics

When clipper captains sailed their old wooden ships across the wild and windy seas
They said their prayers for safe, good fast trips; loaded their cargo, grain and teas
They had good hope, good hope
Sometimes they sailed past the fearsome Cape Horn, clung to their memories and rope
Sometimes they’d sail away to Australia and past the place they called Good Hope

And it’s two sides of the same coin, isn’t it?
It could be worse
All the small moments in a small world in one big universe

I read your journals, the letters bold and swirling
The covers covered in gray dust
Retraced your fingerprints, the pages curling where you wrote, “We all do what we must”
But it takes, good hope, good hope
I wondered how very few words aloud carried and if the sun would really set
And away from the crowds very soft hints of cloudberry
And that’s as close as I could get

And it’s two sides of the same coin, isn’t it?
It could be worse
All the small moments in a small world in one big universe

And it’s two sides of the same coin, isn’t it?
It could be worse
All the strange moments in a strange world in one big universe

We need good hope, good hope ...

I’ve got a lighthouse you can borrow
You’ll give it back to me tomorrow
