There is a man that I know
Seventeen years he never spoke
Guess he had nothing to say
He opened his mouth on judgement day

I listened with all of my might
I was scared by the look in his eyes
Like he'd already lost the fight
And there was no hope ever in sight

No hope in the air
No hope in the water
Not even for me, your last serving daughter.

Why fear death, be scared of living
Oh hearts are small and ever thinning
There is no hope ever of winning
Why fear death, be scared of living

I have seen men provoked
And I have seen lives revoked
And I looked at my life and I choked
From there no more ever I spoke

I can't give up that quick
My life is a candle and a wick
You can put it out but you can't break it down
In the end we are waiting to be lit

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But sadly not me, your last serving daughter.

A friend is a friend forever,
And a good one will never leave, never.
But you've never been south and what rolls off your mouth
You will never understand the ever.

You speak minds handed down to you
By the lies handed down by your truth
And your angels that dance at your wail
Will mask your scrabbling youth

I forgave you your shortcomings
And ignored your childish behaviour
Laid a kiss on your head and before I left said
Stay away from fleeting favour

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But sadly not me, your last serving daughter.

Pick up your rope lord, sling it to me
If we are to battle I must not be weak.
And give us your strength world, and your food and your water
Oh I am your saviour, your last serving daughter.

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But sadly not me, your last serving daughter.

There's hope in the air
There's hope in the water
But no hope for me, your last serving daughter.
