Homemade Valentine (Children 18:3)

We wasted all our hopes on a whim They let us down It's all coming down again In the end, there was nothing left but questions What started as a revolution Petered out in guilty shame We were set to change the world We were at the helm of something big It seems impossible that we should lose everything Are you the only stranger? And have you not seen? We pasted all our hopes on him Like the paper hearts on a homemade valentine We wasted all our hopes on a whim They let us down It's all going down again Still it's only three days past Our king was cast and hope won't last But it was so much more than memories to haunt the past Tell me if you understand What could have been, what should have been And if there's comfort anywhere It's resting now beneath the sand Are you the only stranger? And have you not seen? We pasted all our hopes on him Like the paper hearts on a homemade valentine We wasted all our hopes on a whim They let us down It's all going down again Oh, so foolish Oh, hearts so hard The bullets remind their hearts of bullets Open your mind you'll see
