Hope by Brian Toledo & Eric Toledo
Written & Recorded on 4/14/2001 by Eric Toledo using a Yamaha MT4X 4-track cassette recorder, purchased at Skips Music Sacramento, CA and given to Eric by his Dad.
This is dedicated to anyone who needs a little HOPE in their lives.
I'd love to hear COVER versions of this song, lyrics or not or whatever. To spread the simple universal message of HOPE. Please help me spread HOPE by covering this song and sharing it. Included in the album download is the original lyrics & chords for HOPE.
Unfortunately I cannot find the master cassette tape or I'd upload the individual tracks as well. This song is CCMUSIC licensed.
