Great Expectations

by Closer Than We Appear



Recorded, engineered and mixed by Dave Minehan
Written by Gabe Goodman and Max DiRado


Go tell all your friends,
sneaking out late at night
for cliches.
Can’t wait to remember
good times made with drink
and champagne.

Well haven’t you made it,
every look every glance,
every gaze?
Your interests don’t matter,
you’re all that they need,
you’re okay.

Well I hope you’re on ropes,
I took all your pictures down.
Hung up on high hopes,
we ran them all out of town.
And I heard you’ve gone home,
back to your broken sounds.
You’re out on your own,
your feet never left the ground.

Somebody told me last night,
you got caught in the rain.
Dripping with sorrow,
self pity, self doubt,
what a shame.

You can’t take a compliment,
don’t let it go to your head.
Don’t think I took notice,
I hardly took in what you said.

(We’ve got you covered)
Up to your knees
(You’ve not to worry)
Made up stories
(We’ve got you covered)
Up to your waist
(You’ve not to worry)
What a disgrace
(We’ve got you covered)
Up to your chest
(You’ve not to worry)
Lies and regrets
(We’ve got you covered)
Up to your head
(You saw it coming)
Disappointed me again
