Jackson Hope

Jackson Hope woke up today
He made coffee without a word to say
Today he’ll go back to work like always
but you can read the harsh lines glued to his face.

Jackson Hope is a man with a secret.
Jackson Hope is a man with many a regret.
Jackson has looked down many a barrel
And Jackson Hope has looked down many a bottle.

Hey Jackie
will you die today?
Hey Jackie
will you be okay?
Hey Jackie
Man who’s name is Hope
but no longer has any.
Hey Jackie
what do you have to say?

Jackson Hope stares at her picture.
He remains composed full of demure
Yeah, Jackie knows she won’t come back.
Jackson only sees his whole life black

Jackson Hope made mistakes.
Jackson hopes for sakes
Jackson lost a sense of purpose.
Jackie is only hard on the surface.

Hey Jackie
will you have mercy?
Hey Jackie
will you ever be happy?
Hey Jackie
Man who’s name is Hope
but can no longer see
Hey Jackie
when will you set yourself free?

Hey Jackie
can you ever forgive?
Hey Jackie
will you ever live?
Hey Jackie
A man who is Hope in name
will you always remain the same in vain?
Hey Jackie
when will you ever live?

Jackson Hope woke up today
He made coffee without a word to say.
A new love of his life walked his way
She smiled at him, now I think he’ll be okay.

Jackson Hope got all dressed up for her
Jackson remained composed and demure
Jackson picked up flowers on his way
Tonight Jackie feels okay.

Hey Jackie
how could you know?
Hey Jackie
where will you go?
Hey Jackie
Man who’s last name is Hope
Finally planted some of those seeds to sow
Hey Jackie
glad to see your smile flow.
