Great Expectations [with audio]

*spoken word*

My expectations are high;
I want to find a love that will lift me to the sky.
I’ve got this crazy idea in my mind;
You’ll be the love I’ve been hoping to find.
But you’re just a guy
Destined to make mistakes.

We give and take
Along the way
We hope for something more
But this is all we’ve got
I’m just a girl
And you’re just a guy
We’re both hoping for a love that will lift us to the sky

If we look hard enough we can see the stars.
Do they shine in you like I want them to?
