High hopes: a metaphor for life and current song obsession

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

 

Okay at first I heard this song and the tune itself isn’t that great but then I listened to the lyrics and immediately thought “THIS IS MY JAM!!” And now I can’t stop replaying. Such a great metaphor! I rarely know how things are going to happen only that I want them to happen! There is definitely something to be said about planning and working hard and having that “something”…like in the case of this singer…he has a really good voice (lead singer of panic at the disco).

BUT there is also something to be said for believing and having faith even when the odds are against you. STICK IT OUT!! And good things will surely come your way.

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

This is the other lyric I love from this song.

1. Mama is right…it’s a little complicated. Anything worth striving for is ALWAYS hard and complicated. If it was easy and clear then everyone would do it.

2. “They say it’s all been done but they haven’t seen the best of me.” CHILLS. Seriously guys, haters gonna hate and say whatever you’re attempting has already been done and that you’re stupid for doing it. BUT it hasn’t been done by you! You are unique! In the words of David S. pumpkins (google it), “I’m my own thing.” Damn straight! Go do your thing and who cares if it’s already been done. Your way is going to be so much better and the world needs us to keep striving or we’ll become too set in our ways.

That’s it. That’s my Friday motivation!!! Go get me tiger!!!

P.s. I just finished watching the high hopes video. So cool! Gives even more meaning to the words. Go watch it! https://youtu.be/IPXIgEAGe4U
