Lyrics

Peace and Hope

Who would have guessed that the grandest of players
would squander their good fortune on perpetual war?

Who would have guessed that at that very same moment
Peace and Hope were standing right outside that very door.

Who would have guessed
Who would have guessed

Who would have guessed that operator error for the two wedding parties
would kill their two families right where they stand.

Who would have guessed that the young daughter killed, born of destiny,
she's the one to bring peace to her land.

Who would have guessed
Who would have guessed

Who would have guessed that all people are related, through the veil of uncertainty a family makes their way.

Who would have guessed that our lives eventually cross,
inextricably entwined more and more every day.

Who would have guessed
Who would have guessed

Who would have guessed that the grandest of players
would squander their good fortune on perpetual war?

Who would have guessed that at that very same moment
Peace and Hope were standing right outside that very door.
