Treasure Island

Hopeless Heart

(1991 / New Zealand)

A New Year

Another year comes around
But is there still hope to be found?
A fresh start, a clean slate
To bad it’s all too late.

All those tears that I cried
All those things so unkind,
There is nothing to wash them away
It doesn’t matter what the day,

New years,
Who cares?
Still crying,
Still dying,

All the cuts that I’ve bled
All the memorises that are dead
Nothing means anything anymore
I don’t even know what I’m here for,

I could be dead and gone,
I could be signing a different song,
I could be in a different place,
I could still be in the race,

New years,
New tears,
Still pleading,
Still bleeding,

This all feels so wrong
It’s all been too long,
I just want to leave
Or better yet – believe,

I don’t want to give up
But I’ve run out of luck,
I don’t know if I can last
With such an awful past,

New years,
Old fears,
Still here,
But what do you care?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
