Hope For Better Days - R Adams Mix

about

This is an Alternate Mix version -

This version, which was the first mix of this song was much more acoustic sounding. Originally, Adam Noble, who mixed this track for the album, was going more for what we called the Ryan Adams sound... The acoustic guitars were much more prominent and the drums (especially the kick drum) had a very different treatment and sound. This version also has an additional snare drum hit in the fill going into the 2nd verse that had somehow gone missing in the version that made it onto the album. - JR

lyrics

you can't go home - you can't believe or imagine anything
the taste of hope and insanity was sweet and maddening
and the chords you’ve learned they don't ring the same
suddenly, it was gone

we are - trapped behind the lines in this cold cold war
behind the enemies lines what are we fighting for?
we're trapped behind the lines in this cold cold war
and we HOPE FOR BETTER DAYS
for better days to come
the hope of better days to come

its so cold here - the words are a mist not a meaning
explosive and loud - the grass has died from all the screaming
so many hands reach up from the wreckage of time
can we comfort all the ones that are still trapped inside

trapped behind the lines in this cold cold war
behind the enemies lines what are we fighting for
we're trapped behind the lines in this cold cold war
where we fight among
we fight among ourselves

we can't go on - we can't believe, imagine anything
still we kill the king of beasts just for a photograph
will the chords we sing ever ring the same?
where suddenly the cold is gone
with better days to come.......
with the hope of better days to come
with the hope of better days to come
with the hope of better days
