We found oil (in a hopeless place)  (To the Tune of We found Hope)

[Narration:]
It’s like you’re screaming, and no one can hear
You almost feel ashamed
That something could be that important
That without it, you feel like nothing

No one will ever understand how much it hurts
You felt hopeless; And then God helps save you
And then it’s over, and the Greek’s are gone
You almost wish that you could use all that bad oil they left
Because you can’t find any that’s still good…

[Song begins]
Golden menorah we were forbidden to light
Now we’re standing by your side
As your shadow crosses mine
I’ve no oil to bring you alive

It’s a neis I’m needing I just can’t deny
But I’ve gotta let it go

We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place

[interlude]

Shine a light through the Temple door
No love of fights I will confide
I’m a Maccabee but I hated war
Oil defiled like the thoughts of my mind

It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
But we’ve got a way to go

We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place
We found oil in a hopeless place

[interlude 2]

Pure oil enough to light
Cut through the darkness of just tonight
and the shadow upon my mind
