SONG TEN "Rose Of Angels"
(HOPE) There was a time when roses were red and skies were blue. Dividing lines when I had to choose between the two.
(DAVID)There was a sound when I heard the clouds calling you and I. We're Heaven bound but some say that Heaven is...
(HOPE) ...much too high. Especially for people just three feet high. Well these boys were willing to cast their dreams, like nets on a ocean of carefree schemes.
(DAVID)and something inside said our destiny lies, to build a great stairway right up to the sky...so very high...so very.. (HOPE) Secretly I believed you could...but not I. Secretly believed I should ...I cried. All was quiet in this place as I knelt upon the ground so warm and tender. Felt the earth flow gently through my fingers, so secure asking surrender... should I listen ...should I consider?
(DAVID) If only I were stronger. If I could be like you. To hold the world within my hands, and not some distant view.
(HOPE) I'll only plant these seeds of possibility, see that's the best that I can do.. see I'm not quite strong enough ...strong enough
(BOTH) If only I were stronger, if I could be like you.
(HOPE)I'd plant them way up there instead, in flowing fields of blue.
David joins Hope in the storytelling that is taking place at the reunion. They recall the their motivations and emotions on the day they made the attempt to make a dream come true.
We notice during the song "Rose of Angels" that David and Hope seem to have switched their personal vantage points on how they should have acted that day. David wishes that he had been more down to earth, and Hope wishes she would have placed more trust in the dream of possibility.
We witness the influence that such simple and innocent childhood decisions may have contributed to each others current outlook.
Jesse and family soon call it a day, while David and Hope find themselves together under Old Sam as the sun begins to set.
