She checked into the hospital New Years Eve, nothing to be done about that.
Rainbows, daffodils, she's not naive, symbolism's all crap.
There's a big picture window in the room of the ward with the view over
Parliament hill,
But the view offers more joy than it can afford when there's this much pain
To kill,

You know what hope is, hope is a bastard, hope is a liar, a cheat and a
Tease,
Hope comes near you, kick his backside, got no place in days like these.

The dusk the darkness surrenders to color as the fireworks streak the sky.
And the window gives them the prettiest picture, her useless luck makes her
Wanna cry
Then it turns midnight, the shitty old years spent, another mob gets served
Some sparkling wine,
And she nearly gives in to the moment, but she'll still be sick in two
Thousand and nine,

You know what hope is, hope is a bastard,
Hope is a liar, a cheat and a tease,
Hope comes near you, kick his backside,
Got no place in days like these.

And just as she's thinking of pulling the blind down a rocket bursts in
Front of her eyes,
The city lit up London's giving a bright crowd she tries and stop, spirits
Rise.

You know what hope is, hope is a bastard,
Hope is a liar, a cheat and a tease,
Hope comes near you, kick his backside,
Got no place in days like these.

You know what hope is, hope is a bastard,
Hope is a liar, a cheat and a tease,
Hope comes near you, kick his backside,
Got no place in days like these.

Days like these...
