Great Expectations Lyrics

Seems everyday, I'm gettin' harder pressed
To find a reason to shave
Watchin' the hours just slippin' away

No motivation to get out of bed
And carry on the charade
Caught in a dream that's goin' astray

Oh, all those great expectations
Seems they never work out, never work out
The way that I plan

All those great expectations
Why they never work out, never work out
I can't understand

And just when I think that things are goin' right
I get a call from L.A.
?Sorry to say, we're changin' your song"

I try to reason, but I can't get through
They're gonna do it their way
What can I say, they've never been wrong

Oh, all those great expectations
Seems they never work out, never work out
The way that I plan

All those great expectations
Why they never work out, never work out
I can't understand

Life is just a game of chance
I think somebody said so
Sometimes you get a hula hoop, sometimes you get an Edsel

Oh, all those great expectations
Seems they never work out, never work out
The way that I plan

All those great expectations
Why they never work out, never work out
I can't understand
