Hope (Our Lady Peace song) Wikipedia
When first being recorded, the song was titled "Sunflower" and had a psychedelic style similar to The Doors and according to Jeremy Taggart, a Police vibe out of the bridge.
Hope, the main character of the song, descends into insanity. She thinks she's a sunflower. She climbs on top of the piano and reaches towards the sun. Most of the lyrics remain ambiguous.Hope climbs atop of the piano
Reaching out towards the warmth of the sun
Some man tries to ask her down
But now maybe that's where she belongs
The music video for the song shows the band playing in a smoky bar. It switches back and forth to a woman in a sunflower field who seems lost. It shows her and another man doing various unusual things.
