Hanging My Hopes, Original Lyrics by Leni Kae

I’ve been hanging my hopes on a star

And a wish I made at five – so alive

I saw my future then though from afar

Right before my eyes – just truth, no lies

I was whole, if but for that moment

A warm hug there from above

Said all I’d wished for was beautiful

Made from innocence and love

And I want nothing but truth

For a life that is beautiful, with happiness too

And I want nothing but you

For a love that embraces me, like love should

And I want to reach you

I never pictured myself down here

Amongst the stars, that’s where I belong

There’s more waiting for me, I know

It is serendipity, it can’t be long

And I want nothing but truth

For a life that is beautiful, with happiness too

And I want nothing but you

For a love that embraces me, like love should

And I want to reach you

I’m hanging my hopes on that star

And that wish I made at five – so alive

My future’s here now, and before me a star

No time for standing still, time to fly afar

Yeah, time to be a star

And I want nothing but truth

For a life that is beautiful, with happiness too

And I want nothing but you

For a love that embraces me, like love should

And I want to reach you
