Background[]

"I called [our manager] and I was like, ‘Man, we just wrote this song, I think it’s like, I think this song is our purpose.’ I feel like the reason our band has lasted this long is so we can write a song like this. There were moments over the last year and a half that I really was just hanging by a thread, I felt like my purpose was gone. The song is about how I crawled out of it." - Hayley Williams

Audio[]

Last Hope does not have a music video, but an audio version is available on YouTube. It was uploaded on April 16, along with many other Paramore songs. It is currently available on iTunes.

Lyrics[]

I don't even know myself at all
I thought I would be happy by now
The more I try to push it
I realise -- gotta let go of control

Gotta let it happen
Just let it happen

It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing

Every night I try my best to dream
Tomorrow makes it better
Then I wake up to the cold reality
And not a thing has changed

But it will happen
Gotta let it happen

It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing

It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing

And the salt in my wounds isn't burning anymore than it used to
It's not that I don't feel the pain, it's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore
And the blood in these veins isn't pumping any less than it ever has
And that's the hope I have, the only thing I know that's keeping me alive

Gotta let it happen

It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
(So if I let go of control now, I can be strong)
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing

It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
(So if I keep my eyes closed, with nobody home)
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing
