High Hopes — Panic! At The Disco

High Hopes -- Panic! At The Disco

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars
When I couldn’t make a killing
Didn’t have a dime, but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn’t know how
But I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

Mama said, “Fulfill the prophecy
Be something greater
Go make a legacy”
Manifest destiny
Back in the days
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Mama said, “Burn your biographies
Rewrite your history
Light up your wildest dreams”
Museum victories, everyday
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Mama said, “Don’t give up
It’s a little complicated
All tied up, no more love
And I’d hate to see you waiting”

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars
When I couldn’t make a killing
Didn’t have a dime, but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn’t know how
But I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

Mama said. “It’s uphill for oddities
The stranger crusaders
Ain’t ever wannabes
The weird and the novelties
Don’t ever change”
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Stay up on that rise
Stay up on that rise and never come down
Stay up on that rise
Stay up on that rise and never come down

Mama said, “Don’t give up
It’s a little complicated
All tied up, no more love
And I’d hate to see you waiting”
They say it’s all been done
But they haven’t seen the best of me
So I got one more run
And it’s gonna be a sight to see

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars
When I couldn’t make a killing
Didn’t have a dime, but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn’t know how
But I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes
