Paradise Lost - Hope Dies Young lyrics

[Verse 1]
How could you know?
As pure as driven snow

[Pre-Chorus]
Through a winter of descent
The splintered argument
Such a withering lament

[Chorus]
Hopes will die young
Hopes will die young now

[Post-Chorus]
Obscure the light of day
Assured the life that yearns inside
Reaching out in vain
Reaching out, betrayed

[Verse 2]
How would you know?
The purest visions grow

[Pre-Chorus]
Through the system of intent
A weakened argument
Is your eternal punishment

[Chorus]
Hopes will die young
Hopes will die young now

[Post-Chorus]
Obscure the light of day
Assured the light that burns inside
Reaching out in vain
Reaching out some way

[Outro]
How could you know?
As pure as driven snow
How could you know?
