lyrics

INTRO:
Yeah, this is either the dumbest move I ever made
Or I’m about to go on the wildest adventure of my life

CHORUS:
You give me hope that I’ll finally find my girl
And there’s actually love in this world
Even if it doesn’t work out
You’ve helped me to relieve the doubt
That’s there hope I’ll finally find my girl
And there’s actually love in this world
Even if it doesn’t work out
You give me hope

I gotta resign to the fact I must be out of my mind
Or is acting on a whim just a sign of the times?
A goddess that’s mine, it remains an incomplete mission
I fear I’m deep in decisions from desperate and weak positions
Hoping on a plane with a girl I known about a week
She my eventual wifey or a bonafide freak?
She personify sweet as if sugar had an accent
A future I don’t wanna discuss in the past tense
Relax Dan, you ain’t even know ‘bout her last dudes
Comin’ like 6 and 11, knowing it’s bad news
She got a stalker and an ex, man just talk her into sex
Get it over with and walk on to the next
‘Cause she’s as hot as it gets so maybe she trying to warn me
Or should I be receiving her honesty warmly?
I can’t lie, can’t get her off of my mind
Spontaneous trip to Miami, the awesomest time
A flawless design to get our acquaintances within reach
Partying, getting drunk, chilling on the beach
I really have no idea what I’m in for
But baby, one thing is for sure
And that’s...

CHORUS:
You give me hope that I’ll finally find my girl
And there’s actually love in this world
Even if it doesn’t work out
You’ve helped me to relieve the doubt
That’s there hope I’ll finally find my girl
And there’s actually love in this world
Even if it doesn’t work out
You give me hope

There’s hope
Oh you give me hope, there’s hope

Superlative, inspired by your strength and assertiveness
There was discouragement above my head, now the surface split
Pain I couldn’t overcome, I’ve hurdled it, I’ve moved on
Done feeling a sense of worthlessness, a dude’s strong
See past relationships were full of crass craziness
Like this bad phase when this man had to raise a fist
I didn’t throw it though, though she was icy like the coldest snow
Bringing a brother down to his lowest low
I should have known to go, but I was trapped on amber
She might as well have had no legs, I couldn’t stand her
Had to take the chance to get to know your fiery sass
Met in an acting workshop, but you higher in class
You like the good things in life
Blessed with a beauty a brother would wish he’d wife, you feel me right?
Although you made it clear that ain’t what you looking for
Baby, one thing is for sure
And that’s...

CHORUS:
You give me hope that I’ll finally find my girl
And there’s actually love in this world
Even if it doesn’t work out
You’ve helped me to relieve the doubt
That’s there hope I’ll finally find my girl
And there’s actually love in this world
Even if it doesn’t work out
You give me hope

Oh, there’s hope
Oh, there’s hope
There’s hope
You give me hope
There’s hope
Oooh, there’s hope
Oooh, there’s hope
You give me hope
