"Something to Hope For"

[Verse 1]
Joanie, I was calling just to tell you that I’m gonna be calling
I know you hate to be surprised, I want you to be prepared
I guess the doctor’s back in town, I heard they’re gonna give him clearance
I see a storm coming up in the distance

[Chorus]
The only kind of dreams you ever seem to have are bad dreams
The only thing you say you ever really want to do is sleep
I know that you’ve been passed around
You’ve been hurt so much you’re bored
I want to give you something to hope for

[Verse 2]
I got a little something from the state for all of my hassle
Got little bit more from the guy behind the wheel
The captain started laughing then the accident, it happened
Now it’s a whole different deal

[Chorus]
The only kind of dreams you ever seem to have are bad dreams
The only thing you ever say you really want to do is smoke
I know that you’ve been passed around
You’ve been hurt so much that you’re bored
I’m going to give you something to hope for

[Verse 3]
Would you want to take a little drive with me out into the mountains?
There’s nothing here in this town but the ravage of time
The darkness in the taverns
And the boys back by the bathrooms
All the nickels and dimes
For once in my life I’ve got a little something here in my pocket
It feels pretty sweet with a little bit of room to breathe
I’ve been keeping up with payments
Man, I’ve been managing the pain
The wheels slide off the highway
One more minute in this city’s gonna give me a breakdown
One more night in this bar is gonna give me the blues
An Altima with one headlight out
Slipping, sliding, spinning 'round
Joanie, I’m gonna take care of you
Joanie, I’m gonna to take care of you
I want to give you something to hope for
Joanie, I’m gonna be calling

[Outro]
I wanna give you something to hope for
I wanna give you something to hope for
I wanna give you something to hope for
I wanna give you something to hope for
I wanna give you something to hope for
