Steve Hackett – Hoping Love Will Last

Stuck in my head today. And not for the first time. A timeless classic from the 70s.

There are many friends that I once knew
Who felt the same special thing that I share with you
They’ve grown apart in different ways
I wonder if someone hears as I start to say
I’m hoping love will last
Yes I’m hoping love will last
On and on, on and on

Why do I dream love’s labour’s lost
I’m just a face with a name that you soon forgot
But when I’m scared the most, the nightmare ends
Then safe and sound I awake in your arms again
I’m hoping love will last
Yes I’m hoping love will last
On and on, on and on
How can I go on alone when your love

When your love is all I’ve known
Sometimes we stay many miles away
You know you’re here every minute throughout the day
Within my thoughts
Within my thoughts so take good care
I only wait for the moments we both can share
Hoping love will last
Yes I’m hoping, hoping love will last
On and on, on and on
