Vicetone – Hope (Radio Edit)

[00:00.100]I’ve never been more hopeful about our future
[00:04.500]I’ve never been more hopeful about America
[00:08.750]And I ask you to sustain that hope
[00:13.300]I’m not talking about blind optimism
[00:16.600]The kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead
[00:20.750]Or the road blocks that stand in our path
[00:24.800]I’m not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us
[00:27.800]To just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight
[00:32.800]I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists
[00:38.100]Despite all the evidence to the contrary
[00:40.500]That something better awaits us
[00:42.500]So long we have the courage to keep reaching
[00:44.500]To keep working
[00:46.500]To keep fighting
[01:06.300]I believe that we can keep the promise of our founding
[01:10.000]The idea that if you are want to work hard
[01:13.000]It doesn’t matter who you are
[01:15.000]Or where you come from
[01:16.700]Or what you look like
[01:18.000]Or where you love
[01:19.500]It doesn’t matter whether you are black or white
[01:21.700]Or Hispanic or Asian
[01:23.800]Or Native American
[01:24.800]Or young or old
[01:26.500]Or rich or poor
[01:28.800]Abled, disabled
[01:29.800]Gay or straight
[01:31.000]You can make it here in America
[02:20.750]I believe we can seize this future together
[02:24.500]Because we are not as divided as our politics suggests
[02:28.300]We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe
[02:31.500]We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions
[02:36.500]And we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states
[02:40.200]We are, and forever will be, the United States of America
[02:44.750]And together with your help and God’s grace
[02:48.750]We will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is
[02:53.800]That we live in the greatest nation on earth!
[02:57.600]Thank you, America!
