hoping heart
by SAYSO ©️ 2020




F A# Dm Am c6

i wake up all alone
i look for love on my phone
i fall asleep the same way
every day

all the cities i roam
everyday on my own
dreaming what your first words
will say

my history has shown
i want my love to be known
to lift you and carry you
away

my future’s unknown
i want a love of my own
who’ll ask me to marry
one day

but so far, i’ve lived without you
too far, i’ve cribbed without you
too hard, life is without a
hoping heart

as far as i can see
the biggest love of my life can be
at the bottom of the deep blue sea
a little treasure box of you and me

as far as i can see
the biggest love of my life can be
at the bottom of the deep blue sea
a little treasure box of you and me



i wake up all alone

i look for love on my phone

i fall asleep the same way every day


all the cities i roam

every day on my own

dreaming what your first words will say


my history has shown

i want my love to be known

to lift you and carry you away


my future’s unknown

i want a love of my own

who’ll ask me to marry one day...


but so far, i’ve lived without you

too far, i’ve cribbed without you

too hard, life is without a

hoping heart


and as far as i can see

the biggest love of my life can be

at the bottom of the deep blue sea

a little treasure box of you and me


and as far as i can see

the biggest love of my life can be

at the bottom of the deep blue sea

a little treasure box of you and me



another song born to me (in-part) in a dream


hoping heart was written on ukulele (low-G Romero ST Concert) in my clifton hill bedroom in-between melbourne lockdowns while i was wickedly unwell with long covid.
