In this EP are three versions of the song Hope.

The first version being the final mix, the one I am most proud of. The second, is an Unplugged version, this version is entirely acoustic, but still holds just as much emotion as the first. Finally, the third mix the the early demo of Hope. This song has been in production for a year, and I have gone through several revisions of this song before it finally came to be this version. The Early Demo version uses simulated amp sims, and the vocal harmonies are not as intense. Still, enjoyable and emotional like the others. Enjoy. <3

This track is dedicated to Michelle Michaud. She was taken from us 8 years ago when she lost her fight against cancer.

She was a warrior, a mother, and a friend. And if there is one thing that she taught me during her time on this earth, it was that hope is the most important thing you can have in life. When the the world seems to crumble beneath your feet, and you feel as if there's nothing left to lose, having hope is the best thing you can do. The trick is to push all the negativity of everyday life into the back of your head and expel it from your thoughts. Find something that makes you feel like everything will be okay, and hang on to it for dear life. Because without hope, what do you really have left?

If you ever lost someone before, especially if you lost them to cancer, then this song goes out to you. It's hard at first, and honestly it doesn't stop being hard. Losing a loved one is the most devastating thing anyone could experience. I am here for you, you can push through this. :] <3 - REDD

Track Name: Hope
Hello mother,
How have you been?

It’s been such a long, long time
When will I see you again?

I barely remember
The sound, of your voice

I lay awake at night
Wishing I had a choice

Father above hear me cryin’
Can you guide me, towards the light?

Resented pleasure, the rose that’s wilted
Coming; undone

Show me how
It ends, just fine

Show me how
It’ll be, alright

Give me a reason,
Give me a sign

Send me an angel,
Bring me to life

Eight years has gone so fast..
The memories we made..

Never seemed to last..

And I’m left here by myself..
Loneliness enshadows me

Creating my hell

Father above hear me cryin’
Can you guide me, towards the light?

Resented pleasure, the rose that’s wilted
Coming; undone

Show me how
It ends, just fine

Show me how
It’ll be, alright

Give me a reason,
Give me a sign

Send me an angel,
Bring me to life

I remember your name
I remember your face

I’m sorry that-
I’ve brought you shame

How can I live
In my disgrace?
