Song A Week #21 "Ray Of Hope" Jeff Powers

This is a song I recorded on my Jeff Powers (songwriter CD)...with a full band production. You can download the song and Cd at Bandcamp here

The song and CD received really great reviews..."There’s nothing like finding out about a little known but awesome talent and get to be the one telling the world about them.  It doesn’t happen very often but, when it does, it’s a real personal treat.  This is one of those cases.  To put it short and sweet, Jeff Powers is awesome and his new, self-titled CD is an excellent showcase of his incredible talent...
Another great tune is Ray of Hope. A simple yet haunting tune, it hangs on the thoughts and emotions like every well written song does.  Again, well worth the price of the CD by itself."        Randy Patterson Boomerocity

Ray of Hope (copyright 2002) lyrics/music Jeff Powers

Give me a reason why I should stay
Why I should even call you a friend

Give me one instance when we were right
When it was tight
When you were mine all mine
When I was on your mind

You don’t like to be alone
So you keep me hanging on a rope

Throw me one bone so I can cope
With the hope
That someday you will love me
That one day you will care

   Give me one day a ray of hope
   A little sign that I can hold on to
   Something I can use something I can prove

You’re just waiting for someone else
And in the mean time I’m on your shelf

Paint me one word a ray of hope
A little show
That you will even care
That you know I’m there

   Give me one ray a glimpse of hope 
   A little wink a knowing smile from you
   Something I know true something I can chew

You don’t see how I feel
When we’re together you’re not there
I’m lonely even though you’re here
I’m waiting for you to share (care, dare)

   Give me one day
   Shine me one ray  
   Give me one day
   Shine me one ray
