Hope - Natasha Bedingfield

The Experience: Remember morning always comes. There are moments so dark that you forget the sun even exists. But it does. No hole is so dark that you can't bring a little bit of light and hope to people in need. Or discover some for yourself...

Music video: Still waiting...

The Meaning of Hope: Hope is Natasha's contribution to fragrance brand Philosophy's hope and charity initiative. In her own words,  “My song ‘hope’ is about how powerful hope is. Share your hope with those in your life when they just need a little. We all need to be reminded sometimes of how even the darkest nights become bright mornings. Let’s be there for each other to bring renewed hope when its needed. Don't underestimate the empowerment hope can bring.” (original interview here)

Hope has the initial easy going style of a feel-good ballad, but the way the rythm powers up with 'Cause nothing's ever over till you say it's over underlines the fact that hope isn't passive waiting. Hope is actively working towards that better tomorrow. And that's already a better today.

Ask yourself: Is hope just a consoling illusion? Or is it something real?

LYRICS:

Remember morning always comes
As night surrenders to the sun
No matter how dark it may become
Don't stop your light from shining on
'Cause nothing's ever over till you say it's over
And nothing's ever finished
Not unless you walk away

You see I've got hope
So you could use a little, use a little
Leave it when you've done it
And I won't let go
'Cause a little bit, a little bit of itcan go a long way
Hoooo-ope hooooo-ope, hoooo-ope
I've got hope

It's easier to say you can't when you know you can,
It's easier to let go than to hold somebody's hand
But if you do, then you might just understand yeah
That it's okay to not know where you're gonna land yeah

'Cause nothing's ever over till I say it's over
And nothing's ever finished
Not unless I walk away

You see I've got hope
So you could use a little, use a little
Leave it when you've done it
And I won't let go
'Cause a little bit, a little bit of it can go a long way

I've got hope
So you could use a little, use a little
Leave it when you've done it
And I won't let go
'Cause a little bit, a little bit of it can go a long long way
Hoooo-ope hooooo-ope, hoooo-ope
If you need hope

Hoooo-ope hooooo-ope, hoooo-ope
 I got hope
I got hope

You see I've got hope
So you could use a little, use a little
Leave it when you've done it
And I won't let go
'Cause a little bit, a little bit of it can go a long way

You see I've got hope
So you could use a little, use a little
Leave it when you've done it
And I won't let go
'Cause a little bit, a little bit of it can go a long way

Hoooo-ope hooooo-ope, hoooo-ope (Can go a long long way)
I've got hope

Hope

Give me hope
I could use a little, use a little, use a little
I need a hand, I need a hand, I need a hand
You're throwin' me, you're throwin' me, you're throwin' me
