Where Hope Lives by Ryan Hamner

Where can you go
that feels warm like home
after a long day's fight
somewhere you're not alone
Where is a place to repair
with walls of affection
where can you go
Oh where will you go

This is where hope lives
This is where hope thrives
Together as one we
All laugh and we cry
This is where hope breathes
A thousand stories collide
It's where hope heals
And while you're far from home
You're still at home tonight

A house painted with love
Protects the worn from the cold
A love painted with desire
To revive and soothe your soul
It will hold your heart
In its fostering hands
Tell me where can you go
Oh where can you go


This is not just a story
This is not just a song
This is life for all of us
who walk through the halls
This is not just a few words to make everyone believe
This is our hearts spilled onto paper
This is the help that sets us free
