"Hopes On Hold"

album _Nothing But The Truth_
(Ruben Blades, 1988)

written by Lou Reed/Ruben Blades
================================


        Trying to find out what to do with all your love
        Should I keep it out or let it in
        Can I trust in someone else for a lifetime
        And hope that the distance disappears

        'Cause everytime we place ourselves in other hands
        We take a chance by giving up control
        And second guessing, feeling starts to fade away
        And hopes on hold

        It's not easy to believe in someone else
        Don't know many people that are true
        Still I got to choose between my loneliness
        And that fear to trust in someone new

        'Cause everytime we place our faith in other hands
        We take a chance by giving up control
        But second guessing, feeling starts to fade away
        And hopes on hold

        Hopes on hold
        Hopes on hold

        Do you want to know the truth
        You shouldn't settle for a lie
        Am I just playing the fool
        Are you really what I want

        Everytime we place our faith in other hands
        We stand the chance those hands might let it fall
        But second guessing, feeling starts to run away
        And hopes on hold

        Hopes on hold
        Hopes on hold
        Hopes on hold
        Hopes on hold
        Hopes on hold
        Hopes on hold

Hopes on Hold (L. Reed-R.Blades);


lyrics:

trying to find out what to do with all your love
should i keep it out or let it in?
can i trust in someone else for a lifetime, and hope that
the distance disappears?
'cause everytime we place ourselves in other hands,
we take a chance by giving up control,
and second guessing, feeling starts to fade away and
hope's on hold

it's not easy to believe in someone else
don't know many people that are true.
still, i got to choose between my loneliness and fear
to trust in someone new.
'cause everytime we place our faith in other hands,
we take a chance by giving up control.
but, second, guessing, feeling starts to fade away and
hope's on hold

do you wanna know the truth?
you shouldn't settle for a lie
am i just playing the fool?
are you really what i want?

everytime we place our faith in other hands we stand
the chance those hands might let it fall,
but second guessing, feeling starts to run away and
hope's on hold.
