about

An original song about getting your hopes up and then being let down and then nervously getting your hopes up again...

I wanted a stripped down piano version so we decided to record and release the song again, hence the II.

lyrics

LYRICS:

no I've never been good at knowing the difference
when to let go and when to keep wishing
hope so high and it left me crying

oh I'll probly do it again
oh wrestling my expectations

well I lost my trust and it went with no warning
you could hear it in my voice when I told you the story
said I'm alright but we both know I'm lying

oh I'll probly do it again
oh wrestling my expectations
old hope is a stubborn thing
just a sliver of the light and I'm dreaming of the morning
oh wrestling my expectations

if i keep this up then I know it's gonna break me
but I keep on looking for something to save me

oh I'll probly do it again
oh wrestling my expectations
old hope is a stubborn thing
just a sliver of the light and I'm dreaming of the morning
oh wrestling my expectations
