High Hopes

from An American Wake

He's got stars in his eyes
He's got that Hollywood smile
He wants a big old house in that Bel Air style.
He drove in from the country in a rig full of steel
With a bumper sticker saying that "Jesus was here".

He's gonna sail up in the sky
Fly down like a bluebird from high
He's gonna live the life he dreamed
Turn every stone on it's side.

High Hopes got you coming around
Got you coming back for more

He's got slick attitude with those movie star eyes
He thinks he's made it with the ladies when he sings out of tune
All dressed up in black with a belt buckle to match
He's a legend in his own mind and he's not looking back

He'll raise the roof so high that he might fly
He's gonna shine his light so bright and touch the sky.......

High Hopes got you coming around
Got you coming back for more
