"High Hopes" as written by and Neil Halstead....
Did I hear you say you want someone to talk to
And you want to have someone to hold you close
You've got high hopes for someone good and strong
Someone good to hold you close

I wish that I could be the one you want, girl
I wish that I could be the one who's strong
But your high hopes are better saved
For someone else who might stay

I see you standing there in the pouring rain
Hoping that the taxi comes real soon
Cause you're beautiful enough to make mistakes
You're beautiful enough to make me stay

Did I hear you say you want someone to talk to
And you want to feel some loving in your heart
You've got high hopes for someone good and strong
Someone good who will stay
