Neil Bartram - Great Expectations lyrics

[Katherine] My parents were immigrants, new to these shores. When they were barely 18. They struggled and sacrificed, pounded on doors, to carve out the life they'd foreseen. They fashioned that life out of hope and thin air. A life for the daughter they someday would share. I am that daughter, eternally grateful for all that they gave up for me. [Mike] I belong to a long line of men, all electricians by trade. My grandfather first, my father then, so proud of the business they made. A mantle is claimed, a torch will be pa**ed. Making our family legacy last. So here I stand with my future ordained, and a life that is planned out for me. [All] Oh Oh Oh Oh. [Both] Great expectations, great expectations. [All] Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh. [Both] Great expectations on me. [All] Hmm [Katherine] Through all of their hardships and every lanier, My parents could see their reward. [Katherine] [Mike] Their daughter's degree, I have a war that's and their daughter's career, laid out for me, and everything won for me. that it can afford. No struggle, I see. [Both] The trouble for me is the life that they flaunt, is light years away from the live that I want. So I plant a flag, because I need a piece of the world I can claim for myself. [All] Oh Oh Oh Oh Great expectations, great expectations Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Great expectations of me. I'm my own person with hopes and desires, a future that I engineered. I have a pa**ion that yearns and inspires, a vision so focused and clear. [Girl] I know my path may be humble, with bruises and dakes. [Guy] And countless I'll stumble, and make my mistakes. [Other Guy] But it's time I made choices, It's time that I screamed. [All] Don't want the dream I was given. [Both] I want the dream that I dreamed. [All] Great expectations, great expectations. Oh Oh Oh Oh Great expectations, great expectations. Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh. Great expectations on me. Great expectations! Great expectations! Great expectations! Great expectations on me. Great expectations! Great expectations! Great expectations! Great expectations on me!
