I hope / How long

I hope you know I hope you know

I hope you know I hope you know

Time roles on days turn into nights

Years come and go as they please

Yet the are the coldest Decembers

We can remember and the trees hold the color green

How long will they hold How long will they hold

How long will they hold How long how long

I hope you know I hope you know

I hope you know I hope you know

The belly of the beast

Harbors the rumbles of the bombs they rain

And the love of the people

Taints the river and each grain of sand on the main land

How long will they hold How long will they hold

How long will they hold How long will we hold
