Only Hope Lyrics

My beating heart is getting tired
Tonight it feels like it's on fire
And I'm driving all alone
My hand is on my phone
Waiting for you to call me
Please pick up the phone and call me
'Cause I'm lonely and my mind is aching
Can't you see I'm for the taking

You are my only hope
But you're so far
And you are my only hope
So come back home from where you are

I see your face on everyone
Like the constant beating of the sun
Right on my skin
I'm suffering without you
And try to reach on my stereo
We're starting to sound real close to home
And I can't bear to sleep here
Without you

You are my only hope
But you're so far
And you are my only hope
So come back home from where you are
Just come back home from where you are
Just come back home

Sometimes I feel like I was mistaken
You must be an angel
Touchdown and teach me
What my faults are
I see myself changing
No longer a stranger
You gave me a reason
To never
You are my only hope
But you're so far
And you are my only hope
So come back home from where you are

Secondhand Serenade is a one man band from Menlo Park, California. John Vesely, 30, sings and plays guitar and piano. His music is characterized by multitrack recording so he can create the sound of a band by himself. He uses multitrack recording to create vocal harmonies, and a lead acoustic guitar over strummed chords.

After the breakup of Sounds Like Life, featuring himself and Ronnie Day, Vesely started writing and performing his songs solo under the name Secondhand Serenade. (Secondhand, because his wife, Candice, hears all his songs firsthand.) He rented a studio for 8 days and recorded his 10-track debut album "Awake." Through self-promotion through MySpace and PureVolume, he began to build a loyal fanbase and sold his album and merchandise via his MySpace profile. He quickly rose to the MySpace "Top Unsigned Artists" list, and even entered the iTunes Top 100, a feat for an unsigned act.

He has since signed a deal with new label Glassnote Records, founded by CEO Daniel Glass. In total, Secondhand Serenade has sold about 73,000 digital tracks and more than 10,000 copies of his album "Awake," according to Nielsen SoundScan. After the album was released on Glassnote/ILG on Feb. 6, 2007, with two additional songs, it debuted on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart at # 16.

Vesely was featured on MTV's "You Hear It First," along with spots on AOL Music's "Breakers" and on Yahoo! Music's "Who's Next?".

Another album, "A Twist In My Story," has since been released and a band effect was added digitally. He is on tour, now with a band.
