Hope for the Future[1] is a song written and composed by the famed Beatles member Paul McCartney. It was released digitally on December 8, 2014. It was also later revealed that the song was apart of the musical suite Music of the Spheres, which was released digitally with Vinyl preorders of The Music of Destiny Vol. 1 on June 1, 2018. Talking about the writing process for the single, Paul said:

When you’re writing something like "Hope For The Future", which is custom made, it is like doing a portrait for someone. You have to use your imagination and work out what they need, what they're going to want and then what you want to give them. Then you’ve got to combine those three things into something that you still think maintains integrity. So in the game you're basically trying to save Earth from the invaders, the aliens, so that suggested to me the ‘hope for the future’ idea and I went from there. Then I thought it is not just a game song, this will get played outside the game so it has got to be stand alone too, you can’t have references to aliens or people will think ‘what’s he talking about?’ So it had to have its own stand alone meaning and integrity.[2]

Lyrics[3][edit]

Some hope for the future
Some wait for the call
To say that the days ahead
Will be the best of all

We will build bridges
Up to the sky
Heavenly lights surrounding
You and I

From out of the darkness
Our future will come
If we leave the past behind
We'll fly beyond the sun

We'll be together
Sharing the load
Watching in wonder as our lives unfold

Hope for the future
It's coming soon enough
How much can we achieve?
Hope for the future
It will belong to us
If we believe
If we believe

Hope shines brightest in the dark
When nothing's ever seen
Lighting undiscovered places
No-one's ever been

Some hope for the future
Some wait for the call
To say that our destiny
Will be the best of all

And we will build bridges
Up to the sky
And heavenly lights
Surrounding you and I

Hope shines brightest in the dark
Where nothing's ever seen
Lighting undiscovered places
No-one's ever been

Hope for the future
Hope for the future
Hope for the future
