There's just no substitute for fun
I've tried every single one
And no one can take your place
Everybody gets replaced
My time has neither come nor gone
It just slips out when I yawn
Without hope I can't go wrong

Don't get my hopes up now
Don't get my hopes up now

It's so hard to settle down
Don't recognize my home town
Home is where I hang my head
Lost in all these things I said
Been holding my breath for so long
I don't need air anymore
If you never let me breathe
I'll never breathe

Don't get my hopes up now
Don't get my hopes up now

Don't know what I was hoping for
I feel like feeling better than I ever felt before

My time has neither come nor gone
It just slips out when I yawn
Holding my breath for so long

Don't want to be bored no more
I know there's so much more
Don't know what I was hoping for
I feel like feeling better than I ever felt before

Don't get my hopes up now
Don't get my hopes up now
