Track Name: The Last Time The Cubs Won The World Series
you gotta have hope
you gotta know there’s something coming down the line
it’s hard to think that way
when the romantic ideals of youth
fade over time

you get used to disillusionment
you get used to thinking
like something will never happen
you compromise your faith
and feel that less and less matters

another year has passed
another time of loss and regret
we should have done this
we should have done something other than that

second guessing is our nature
our way of coping with our mistakes
it’s hard to admit that sometimes
those are just the breaks

it seems that in the spring
we’re able to think so positively
by the time the leaves have fallen from the trees
we’re hit with reality

any way you look at it
it takes a lot of grace to get by
we get through the winter
and find the strength
to give it another try

the last time the cubs won the world series
I wasn’t even born
neither was my father
my grandpa was only 1

but somehow we have hope
despite the cynicism of our age
after all we were back to back champions
in 1907 and 1908
