Real Hope - Lyrics

She wanted her face to be famous
She dragged it off down to the smoke
Where she went on a show where they turn dreams to gold
And give real people false hope

She needed the comfort she needed the cheer
Her children had all flown the nest
She desperately wanted to change her career
To the thing that she felt she did best

Giving real hope to false people
Telling the world it can sing
False hope to real folk
You can sing you can sing you can sing

He worked in a shop where they hated his guts
Lived in a house just the same
And all that he ever requested in life
Was no swear word prefix in his name

He wanted the glory he wanted the fame
In limelight he wanted to soak
So he saved up the money and boarded the train
To where they give plastic people real hope

Take heed if your dreams are a staring
Dreamboat can end up on the rocks
That road paved with gold is just one block away
From the rear end of Top Of The Pops
From the rear end of Top Of The Pops
If you want it don't tell us about it
And if you don't get it don't cry
Just do as they say and follow your dreams
fool is a weight of a fly
A fool is a weight of a fly
