  • Added lyrics for several of Hope's non-album songs. Please contact me for suggestions or corrections (especially "Wild Roses" and "Killing Smile"). Thanks!

    "Wild Roses"
    From the Air France compilation In The Air (2008)
    ... Amazon / iTunes

    When I speak about it now
    I put things ... to you
    Maybe I've been dismayed
    Maybe that's the truth

    We're like the roses
    Stoned in the backyard
    There is no misery
    In the time we grew wild

    When I look out the door
    I know what it's there for
    To leave or to come back
    Safe in the morning

    Safe me ...
    Roaming too late
    Suddenly I fall dear
    In the time we grew wild

    We're like the roses
    Stoned in the backyard
    There is no misery
    In the time we grew wild


    "Cherry Blossom Girl (Hope Sandoval version)"
    From Air's Cherry Blossom Girl Single (2004)
    ... Amazon / iTunes

    I don't think to feel like being shy
    Don't think i wanna stand it anymore
    I just want to say "Hi"
    To the one I love
    Tell my cherry blossom girl

    This is true

    I never talk to you
    People say I should
    I just wanna go out ...
    Just wanna be sure be by my side
    Tell my cherry blossom girl

    Yes it's true
    Yes it's true
    This is true


    "Angel's Share"
    From Vetiver's self-titled album Vetiver (2004)
    ... Amazon / iTunes

    Makeshift moon mends a broken sky
    Fields of fallow still stands dry
    Night not gentle, soon for the night

    Her mistake was to trust in him
    His bodily excuse again
    Yeah, the voices hard like the wind

    Said, "I'm tired of you coming home late"
    "I will do as I please, Kate
    "There's no one gon' tell me how to be"
    "Not for my sake, Tom, for the family"

    He read guilt when she pled love
    Got anxious and began to shove
    Clouds have been kept loomed above

    Curses raised the kids from bed
    They fell down the stairs in time to see
    The blood run warm down Kate's head

    While the wounds in silence came to scars
    Tom kept hitting them jukejoint bars
    All the love vanished in the air
    Filled with paper vows and the angels' share


    "All This Remains"
    From Bert Jansch's album Edge of a Dream (2002)
    ... Amazon / iTunes

    I've been seeing you
    In this house of mine
    Got your arms away
    From my strange disguise
    All the things that you believe
    Are still in me
    As though you please

    And they shimmer
    On the ends of my memories
    I could feel your ghost
    In the breeze

    I'm telling you this
    So you won't have anything
    But this to know
    Our colours fade
    All this remains

    And they shimmer
    On the ends of my memories
    I could feel your ghost
    In the breeze

    It's not so much
    That you should say
    You had a love
    Turn out this way
    It covers your ears
    And stops your heart
    And holds you near

    The shimmer
    On the ends of my memories
    I could feel your ghost
    In the breeze


    "Killing Smile" and "Help Yourself"
    From Death In Vegas' album Scorpio Rising (2002)
    ... Amazon / iTunes

    Killing Smile

    You can spin your world behind my falling star
    The slab beneath you in your long killing smile
    I've got the time to spare
    But you don't need it
    I've got my mind in anyway
    You can always shine behind my hidden door
    Just like a flame although with you I couldn't tell I'm not the one who ever walks away
    Don't have a feeling that I wanna waste my time
    But you know I ...

    And you know I want to...with you
    All the time (repeat)

    I'm feeling like I want to hang around
    Don't have a ... to lay it down
    But you know I want to...with you
    And you that I could...with you

    All the the while I spend my time making schemes
    Now I know when things are always what they seem
    But you know they should
    Yeah
    And you know I want that...to change
    And you know I want that...please

    Help Yourself

    You can't change without someone's shadow
    'Cuz then it's gone
    when you still shine
    You can't change to solve somebody's name
    Don't blink until you're made

    When all destroyed, broke all in Hell,
    and you don't need what you could steal;
    I'm feeling like something I don't know that's wrong
    And I know the sad in my heart

    Help yourself with
    Help yourself with what you need, yeah
    Help yourself when
    Help yourself when you don't need it
    Help yourself

    Help yourself with
    Help yourself with what you need, yeah
    Help yourself when
    Help yourself when you don't need it


    "Asleep From Day"
    From The Chemical Brothers album Surrender (1999)
    ... Amazon / iTunes

    I know just what your mama said
    Always misunderstood
    Gotta tell you something
    I saw it in your eyes

    I think I left your back seat
    And now it's always good
    I fell asleep from day
    And all the promises

    There's a lot of people
    That let their will to say
    I've got a lot of friends
    And they've got beautiful eyes
    That make my heart feel surprised
    And you notice it
    And thats the truth
    Thats the truth

    Have me to you
    I shine along underneath your view
    I'll be the one
    To let you know when you've come undone

    I like the stars in the sky
    And watch the moonlight go by
    I've got a lot of friends


    "Perfume"
    From The Jesus & Mary Chain album Munki (1998)
    ... Amazon / iTunes

    Meeow (repeat)

    Alive, alive, alive

    I'm alive
    I'm alive
    I'm alive alive alive alive

    Baby I'm in heaven
    But I don't believe a word
    No I don't believe a word
    Going down

    I'm on five
    I'm on five
    I'm on five
    Alive alive alive

    Maybe I got lucky
    But I always stood the chance
    Yeah I always stood the chance of the prize


    "Sometimes Always"
    Duet with Jim Reid from The Jesus & Mary Chain album Stoned & Dethroned (1994)
    ... Amazon / iTunes

    I gave you all I had
    I gave you good and bad
    I gave but you just threw it back

    I won't get on my knees
    Don't make me do that please
    I've been away but now I'm back

    Don't be too sure of that
    What makes you sure of that
    You went away you can't come back

    I walked away from you
    I hurt you through and through
    Aw honey give me one more chance

    Aw you're a lucky son
    Lucky son of a gun
    You went away, you went away
    You went away but now youre back

    I got down on my knees
    And then I begged you please
    I always knew you'd take me back
