High Expectations

Location

 
 
The building blocks you put down stack so high that they touch the sky
The skyscrapers you make are so tall they remind me that I'm so small
And I admire your optimism
But there's so mush optimism that can be given
I wish I was more driven 
So I could reach your expectations -just -a little -faster
 
High expectations float above the clouds and Into space,
pass the stars n the home of some alien race
Too high, to reach and when their in my grasp
They catch drift of the wind and blow out of my hands
And I find myself using any thing I can find
Just to add a lil height
Someday I'll reach it 
But today won't be the day
Cus you'll find my legs don't stretch that way
 
 
I'm only 5 foot 2 and everything's just so tall around me in all my surroundings 
Especially you, who makes mountains out of mole hills, making such a big deal
Trying to bring me up 
But there are some days that I feel out of my luck
I'll do my best
But some days my best isn't good enough to -lift -me -up
 
High expectations float above the clouds and Into space,
pass the stars and the home of some alien race
Too high, to reach and when their in my grasp
They catch drift of the wind and blow out of my hands
And I find myself using any thing I can find
Just to add a lil height
Someday I'll reach it 
But today won't be the day
Cus you'll find my legs don't stretch that way
 
 
 Always striving for the best no imitation when it comes to high expectations
Living on the the floor searching for the ceiling, cus the ceiling more appealing 
Than the ground that your living on
High expectations keep me moving on
Lend me a stare well or maybe a ladder
anything that can take me higher
 
 
And I'll keep on tryin
Stand on my tip toes if I have to
It's at my finger tips
I can almost touch it
High expectations
Sometimes I feel too small to get to you
But it's a my finger tips
I can almost gasp it
