about

Call me a crazy dreamer. An ode to getting on with it and believing in the best. For once.

lyrics

I know the chances I
Have of being satisfied
But whatever lies in store
I won’t argue anymore
No I won’t struggle any more

I know the dance routine
And all the steps that lie between
What you want and what you need
And what you must have guaranteed

I can’t help holding
Too high hopes
I can’t help thinking
All is good
I can’t help holding too high hopes
I can’t help holding too high hopes

I know the likelihood
Of keeping dtraight and keeping good
But I won’t listen to the score
I’m not counting anymore
No I’m not counting anymore

I can’t help holding
Too high hopes
I can’t help thinking
All is good
I can’t help holding too high hopes
I can’t help holding too high hopes

I know the faces I
Always use to get me by
My stock expression of shattered calm
My default state of vague alarm

I can’t help holding
Too high hopes
I can’t help thinking
All is good
I can’t help holding too high hopes
I can’t help holding too high hopes
