High Hopes - Lyrics by Gorilla Biscuits

When you're on your high horseand things are going your wayyou really don't appreciatewhat you wanted bad yesterday.
But if i lost it-I'd still be the same
It won't break my spirit-I'll look ahead just the same
Times are hard it's true- I'll cope
But it won't get me downcause I got- High Hopes
When you're on the bottomthe place to look is up
When things are getting better,don't stop, don't say enough
What you achieve-that's for you to choose
You can always-regain what you lose
Something shitty happensand it hurts- I'll cope
It's time we all had- High Hopes
Some people can't reboundwhen hardship hits their life
When they lose something they loveand their friend's holding the knife.
Pick your head up, get off the ground
These High Hopes that I havekeep me from getting down.
