Wings of Hope




Sometimes magic happens. A chance meeting with author, Wendy Campbell, turned into a wonderful song writing project for me. Wendy asked me if I could write a theme song for her autobiography On Aspiring.



The phrase Wings of Hope was mentioned just once in On Aspiring but I knew as soon as I read those words that Wings of Hope would become the title and the fundamental theme of the song.

On Aspiring is an honest and thought provoking read, detailing Wendy's own personal life struggles and achievements. Beautifully written, I found it easy to immerse myself within the pages and to write Wings of Hope

I placed the phrase "I am letting go, and holding on to the wings of hope." at the end of every verse. After writing Wings of Hope I've noticed that I remind myself about "letting go and holding onto hope" as I go through my daily life.




Play Wings of Hope on Spotify or Youtube.

          








And I will keep on searching along the wings of hope,
Hearing only angels voices, fearing nothing in my way.
And I'll share with you my dreams, as my tears wash my pain away.
Along the wings of hope I fly today.

Where I am, it's not where I'm meant to be,
And this road I find me on isn't really me.
I must find a way, find a way to save me from myself.
I am letting go, and holding on to the wings of hope.

You may be the one who's taken all of my heart,
But the mountains and the stars have captured my soul.
I am drowning, drowning in a sea of fear and glory.
I am letting go, and holding on to the wings of hope.

I've learnt to trust the arms of a stranger,
I've known the summit glow, I've learnt to dare.
And in my prayers, I pray for strength and confidence.
I am letting go, and holding on to the wings of hope.

And I will keep on searching along the wings of hope,
Hearing only angels voices, fearing nothing in my way.
And I'll share with you my dreams, as my tears wash my pain away.
Along the wings of hope I fly today.
