lyrics

I sit back for a minute and wait my turn
Take a deep breath and I watch it burn
With hope
And the fire could've died out long ago
But the more you fall, the more you grow
With hope
Yeah she works all night just to stay alive
Been dreaming big her entire life
I hope she's right
You've gotta keep on moving...

With high hopes
This is the only road I know
I'm trying to get by
With high hopes
And land my feet back on the ground
Cause there's no way I'm gonna give up now

I've got change in my pocket
My heart on the line
Another doubt
A friend of mine again
Time after time
When the fear shows up
A little too fast
Every lesson learned
Becomes the past
I know it's hard to look down
With 300 days gone and 65 more
Another year washes up on the shore
You've gotta keep on moving...

With high hopes
This is the only road I know
I'm trying to get by
With high hopes
And land my feet back on the ground
Cause there's no way I'm gonna give up now

Not gonna give up now
Not gonna give up now

Cuase I tasted fire
The need to burn brighter
There's no escaping you
When push comes to shove
It's never enough
Til I see you shining through
You've got me circling

With high hopes
This is the only life I know
I'm trying
I'm trying

With high hopes
This is the only road I know
I'm trying to get by
With high hopes
And land my feet back on the ground
Cause there's no way I'm gonna give up now

You've got me hanging on your hopes
You've got me tangled up in ropes
And I will find a way somehow
I've come this far so feet don't fail me now
