You've got me like no one has before, I really love you
The way you talk and the things you say sound so good
But there you were standing over there with another last night
Now in the middle of it can't you see it's killin' me
I had high hopes for you and me
Thought we'd stay together eternally
High hopes for our love
Felt like it was heaven sent from above
Ooh
Just too hard to let go
You told me you loved nobody else, you never would
You had my child, you'd even marry me if I asked
But now it seems more so every day that you need me less
Now you're almost there, come around, I don't wanna let you go, oh, ho
I had high hopes for you and me
Thought we'd stay together eternally
High hopes for our love
Felt like it was heaven sent from above
(High) This can't be
Caught you with another and, girl, it's killin' me
(High) You let me down
I have to find somebody else since you won't be around
Just need a little time, it'll be alright
High hopes
High hopes
Can't you see, I want you for myself (And always will)
We had our talk and tried to make things right, or so it seems
But it's him for you, I guess you don't need me anymore
Hey, I never ever come around to see you again, oh (Oh, ho)
'Cause I had high hopes for you and me
Thought we'd stay together eternally
High hopes for our love
Felt like it was heaven sent from above
(High) Ooh, this can't be
Caught you with another and, girl, it's killin' me
(High) You let me down
I have to find somebody else since you won't be around
High hopes
Just need a little time and I'll be alright
High hopes
Ooh, hoo, high, high, high
High hopes
It's so hard to let go
High hopes
