Vicetone – Hope (Instrumental Mix)

[01:01.79]I’ve never been more hopeful about our future.
[01:05.95]I’ve never been more hopeful about America.
[01:10.38]And I ask you to sustain that hope.
[01:15.20]I’m not talking about blind optimism,
[01:18.60]the kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead
[01:22.57]or the road blocks that stand in our path.
[01:26.09]I’m not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight
[01:34.55]I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists,
[01:39.52]Despite all the evidence to the contrary,
[01:41.55]that something better awaits us,
[01:43.41]so long we have the courage to keep reaching,
[01:46.35]to keep working,
[01:47.61]to keep fighting.
[02:08.06]I believe we can keep the promise of our founding,
[02:11.79]the idea that if you are willing to work hard.
[02:14.23]It doesn’t matter who you are,
[02:16.25]or where you come from,
[02:17.77]or what you look like,
[02:19.21]or where you love.
[02:20.44]It doesn’t matter whether you are black or white,
[02:22.42]or Hispanic or Asian,
[02:24.30]or Native American,
[02:25.67]or young or old,
[02:27.89]or rich or poor,
[02:29.67]abled, disabled
[02:31.38]gay or straight.
[02:32.04]You can make it here in America.
[03:22.10]I believe we can seize this future together.
[03:26.06]Because we are not as divided as our politics suggests.
[03:29.63]We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe.
[03:32.59]We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions,
[03:37.00]And we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states.
[03:41.75]We are, and forever will be, the United States of America
[03:45.76]And together with your help and God’s grace
[03:49.14]We will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on earth
[03:58.91]Thank you, America!
