A cappella


Hopin the levee holds
What are you so sad for
Your eyes haunt me long after you're gone
Bored of the fear
Death feels like an old hat
Hangin round all useless on the back of my door

When you were born did they have high hopes
Did the expectations stand
Did they see that sparkle in your eyes
Did you learn how to clap your little hands

What were you thinkin lyin on the slab
Trouble so big and look at you so small
Seven times been broken
This is your life
Was he good to you
Did good doctor bring your doll

White curtains hide you from the sun
Pale skin around your eyes
You look surprised to be here
Did they cut you down to size

Striped windows leave streaks down your face
Flowers do not fill your head
Reflective white walls keep you in your place
In 1932 you will be dead

Folk-jazz outfit, The Good Hope, blends the smokily textured vocals of singer-songwriter Jen Cork, with the instrumental stylings of Harry Aceto (upright bass), Brian Earle (clarinet), and Michael Wellen (drums). These elements come together to create a warm sound that takes the listener on a sometimes danceable and sometimes pensive, but always rich exploration of death, learning, and love. ... more
