Tag: Three-Day Lyrical Challenge [Day 3]

As before, thanks to Sara @ The Bibliophagist for tagging me! It’s been a fun three days sharing some of my favourite lyrics. If you missed them, make sure to get caught up on Day 1 and Day 2 of the challenge!


The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Yesterday I was talking to a friend who reminded me of Kodaline. I hadn’t listened to Kodaline in a long time, but as soon as I went back it felt so familiar and was somehow even better than before. For the final day of my Three-Day Lyrical Challenge I’m sharing my favourite Kodaline song, High Hopes. A shout-out to its fantastic music video which complements the song perfectly:

Broken bottles in the hotel lobby
Seems to me like I’m just scared of never feeling it again
But I know it’s crazy to believe in silly things
But it’s not that easyI remember it now, it takes me back to when it all first started
But I’ve only got myself to blame for it, and I accept that now
It’s time to let it go, go out and start again
But it’s not that easy

But I’ve got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, when it all comes to an end
But the world keeps spinning around

And in my dreams, I meet the ghosts of all the people who have come and gone
Memories, they seem to show up so quick but they leave you far too soon
Naïve I was just staring at the barrel of a gun
And I do believe that, yeah

But I’ve got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, oh, when it all comes to an end
Now the world keeps spinning
Yeah, the world keeps spinning around

High hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, oh,
And the world keeps spinning
Ooh, yeah, this world keeps spinning

How this world keeps spinning around

    1. You’re welcome, hope you have fun with it! In my opinion Kodaline is really one of those bands you can come back to anytime after a long hiatus and enjoy them just as much. Maybe even more because it feels fresh again.
