Hope Sleeps                         

While the madman tried to wipe her people from the planet
Anne Frank dreamt about the freedom we all take for granted
Watched the devastation hit the spot where she was seeing
Said, I don't believe in hatred. I believe in human beings.

And when it sleeps it dreams
The most amazing dreams
The kind a young girl treasures
Hope sleeps
Hope sleeps
But not forever
 
And no matter who you are, no matter what your age
It shows us the simple power of words upon a page
Through a writer¹s pen, even the desperate find a voice
But courage is an act of will, and happiness a choice
 
Hope sleeps
And when it sleeps it dreams
The most amazing dreams
The kind a young girl treasures
Hope sleeps
Hope sleeps
But not forever
Not forever
